Finally after so many plan changes, delays, last minute trips of Sol and Jason back to Playa for a whole week to get Jasons immigration papers done and ready, rushing to see most of our friends .... We ARE crossing tomorrow Saturday 04 December 2010 at 7.00 AM !!!!!
Its probably one and a half hours into the first Miraflores locks and if anybody is interested we will be on the Panama Canal web cam at around 8.30 AM (Panama time which is one hour ahead of Mexico time) you can click onto the below link and you "may" see us leaving or entering the locks..... you will recognized us by the fact we are 100th the size of anything else and by the look of abstract fear on the Captains face....
If anyone is interested on a more accurate time to get to your computers just give us a call on Sols phone number (Mexico)52 1 984 1154805 it is not very exciting except for us but perhaps the children may like it.
Plans are then abandon the boat in Shelter Bay Marina on the other side and flying to the UK friday evening for warm beer and cold toes for Christmas and New Year.
We are now heading to the bar to meet with the couple who are coming as line handlers, the other two are arriving tomorrow earlier than the pilot (we hope).
We are all looking forward to this experience and are glad to finally leave the diesel fumes and rolling mooring we have been for the last 14 days!! (At least Seb and I )
Will be in touch later on.....
Paul and the rest...
