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.

These rail engines, called "mules," run along both sides of the Panama Canal to pull large ships through without requiring them to use their engines.

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.
