Packing up and off to the Panama Canal

Well, we've drug out summer summer clothes, sandals, sparkly dinner wear, suntan lotion and we're leaving first thing tomorrow morning to catch our flight to Fort Lauderdale. We'll board our Princess Coral ship on Wednesday after lunch and by suppertime, we'll be en route to the Panama Canal. We will have stops along the way and our disembarkation point will be Acapulco Mexico.

Over the next 2 weeks, if you want to see where Mert and I are... Check out the bridge Camera every day. It'll give you our location with a view right out of the front of the ship. This bridge cam updates every 2 minutes. Just press F5 to refresh.

Of course the big highlight of this cruise will be passing through the Panama Canal all day and taking a tour of the inner canal and all the operations in the evening. That will be on November 23rd. We will arrive at 7am and sail through the canal and lakes all day. At 5pm, we tender to land to take our tours of the locks.

That is also the day we celebrate our 25th Wedding anniversary. Of course our 25th anniversary is not really until March 23rd 2009, but no there were no cruises through the Panama that day.The last 3 days of our trip, we'll be in Acapulco, Mexico staying at the Emporio resort. Do not look at the virtual tours on the hotel website. Then we return to Bangor late on Dec 2. Home in our own beds Dec 3.

Kenny loaned me his Ipod touch, so I'm going to check my yahoo email when I can. Let me know if anything special happens by my yahoo email! I'll respond to all emails so you know that I got your email.
