Did we just transit the Panama Canal?
On Friday, Mike and I crossed the Panama canal  .... sideways that is!
When our taxi got to the bridge at the Gatun Locks to take us back to the marina, it was closed!  The only alternative was to put the taxi on a ferry and so we crossed the Panama Canal!
We had a good laugh at our first "transit"  - took all of about 10 minutes.
Today we are headed to Portobelo to have the bottom of the boat scrubbed by an adept Kuna diver - and then back to the San Blas islands.
