As we flew into Panama City we could see numerous vessels waiting their turn for canal entrance. The line stretched for miles.
We have a few hours till our next flight so we took a taxi to the canal. It was fascinating.
It was explained to us that when the water levels are raised and lowered to allow vessels to move through, it is all done by gravity. I joked with Danny and asked,’what happens when they run out of gravity?’ He replied that that’s a good question, that perhaps as a family we should start a “Save Gravity’ campaign. I think we should get t-shirts made up!
Panama City is huge. It feels weird to be back in ‘civilization’ again. I really quite like the slower pace of Red Frog Marina, and especially the feeling of being closer to earth and Mother Natures pulse.
Life is good, and I am so grateful for another day to experience it.
