Dredging takes place all year round to ensure adequate depth. Because of the heavy rain (over 2 inches each week) in Panama, they also take several measures to reduce erosion into the canal.
The next lock that gets us up to the main canal and the lake is on the extreme right of this picture.
I took all my Panama Canal pictures from the deck of the Disney Wonder as we cruised from the south (Pacific) end of the canal to the north (Atlantic) end. We were told to expect rain. It rains a couple of inches every week in Panama. But our passage was unusual: it started overcast, then became cloudy, but no rain.
