100301 : Concrete, Steel And Guts

I am making every effort to get a move on. So I have moved on to the Panama Canal. I must have taken hundreds of shots throughout the day of the transit, but I will be mercifully selective in my choice. This picture seems to sum up the whole Panama Canal experience : it is very much a man-made environment, a triumph of concrete, steel and guts over raw nature. Here one of the locomotives is seen gently guiding our ship into the locks, with inches to spare at either side.

You have many memories to categorize and sort through. I wonder what the outcome will be? How many pictures will you end up with?

I have a friend from Panama who I have known for a long time. He is a blogger like us. His stories are interesting but never mentions the canal. I don't know why.

Alan, I have been popping in to vicariously relive your travels. Can't get enough of them. Sorry I have not been leaving any comments.

MY schedule lately has been so overloaded that by the time I get time to check out my friends I am falling asleep at the PC and my comments become mindless dribble.

Have a slow day for a change and trying to catch up.

I have missed your stopping by but I have had little to share lately worth visiting as well.

Hope all is well in your world. Wishing you a great week.
