Ending our trip through Lake GatĂșn, the large artificial lake constituting a big part of the Panama canal.

On the left of the picture, just to the right of the container ship, the concrete mass indicates the entrance to the new larger Neo-Panamax locks. We went to the left of them, through the old Panamax locks.

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.
