I have no photos currently of passing through the Gatun Locks because it was getting too dark.  I will probably have some from other sources later.

Next day cruising through Gatun Lake.

Lots more photos and video to be shared when I have a real wifi connection…  Very happy to be on the Pacific side of the Canal.  We’re at anchor; Tim has gone to try to clear out with immigrations.  We still have a quest for an alternator repair that we’re trying to complete before we depart, though we’re all anxious to head south for the Galapagos!!
