Today we completed our transit through the Panama Canal. Thanks to all of our friends and family who snapped photos and messaged with us as we made our way through. The transit took 2 days, and we spent the night in Gatun Lake.
Thanks especially to Mrs. Buchanan’s class at Hendricks Avenue Elementary in Jacksonville, Florida. Thanks to you, we managed to convince the Canal Authority to focus the cameras on us as we entered the Miraflores locks.
Now we’re anchored in Panama City after crossing under the Bridge of the Americas this afternoon. We have a ton of cool photos and videos and will be uploading them all in the next day or two. Thanks for watching Hendricks Avenue, Brunet-García, and friends and family.

Happy to hear that you guys finally made it to the Pacific! I really enjoyed checking out the pictures of your canal crossing (and the video from Hendricks Elementary). I think the kids are really enjoying the chance to be a part of your epic adventure. 🙂
WOW!! This is all so Amazing! Thanks for the text updates on your positions. I was able to see you cross under the bridge live but missed the lock passages (thanks to all of those that had snapshots to share). I am just gushing with excitement for you two. Thanks SO much for keeping us posted…. we are all living vicariously through this blog. HELLO……50 ft cat?!?!? I still can hardly believe it… I had to see it to believe it… thanks to modern technology, I can. Here’s to becoming more proficient with Google earth now too. You know dad is Loving that! He loves that site.
