Connected again



We have spent almost two weeks completely disconnected from the electronic world.  We returned from a 11 day cruise to Central America and then a quick RV rally. I admit to enjoying the lack of online information.  I even avoided the news that was available onboard the ship.  It seems the world continued on its crazy path without my having been informed of the progress or lack thereof.

We have had a great time and managed to complete one of my bucket list items of transiting the Panama Canal from the Atlantic to the Pacific.

The voyage started and ended in Port Everglades, the port for Ft Lauderdale, FL.  This was a very convenient  way for us to make the ship connection. 

The great weather for our departure was a prelude for the weather we enjoyed the entire trip.


















We will be sharing this trip over the next few blog posts.

Great photos. We've spent time in Central America and at the Panama Canal but didn't do a cruise. It's nice to check off things on our bucket list.

My Aunt Happy loved doing the cruise through the Panama Canal. She probably went four or five times. I can hardly wait to see your pictures.

Your photos of the CG boat are making think I retired too early.

Sounds like a great cruise, the Panama Canal is quite something to behold. I was fortunate on a TDY trip to explore the Mira Flores locks from underneath, to see how all the locks work, then into the control room.

From the balcony of the control room, I could have shaken the hand of a sailor on the bridge of a container ship that was passing thru the lock.

A lifetime special memory. :c)

PS: Welcome back to civilization!

Looking forward to hearing about your time "disconnected" from the world.

How lovely to be disconnected for such a good reason. A break from news is a good thing (in my books).

I look forward to hearing about your trip!
