Entering Lake GatĂșn, the large artificial lake constituting a big part of the Panama canal.

We were told to expect to see monkeys and crocodiles, and were hopeful that they would show up as we traversed the lake. But they must have been on vacation; we never saw either.

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.
