Welcome! This page is getting major hits in the past few days. Are you all heading to Panama? Can I come with? Why not say "Hi" down in the comment area. Don't be shy. I don't bite...hard.

Just wanted to share our little time-lapse video of our transit through the Panama Canal. It takes about 8 hours to get from one ocean to the other, luckily, this video is considerably shorter.

And yes, it would be cooler if the music was Van Halen's Panama
... stupid copyright laws. Pshhhhhhhh.

Wow, that's really cool! It seems like an awfully big boat to be going through those "little" slips!

Thanks for sharing.

Bev - what do you mean? We had 12 inches to spare!

Great time-lapse photography! A Panama Canal transit is definitely an experience to behold. I would like to ask you permission to use the graphic image of the Canal at the beginning of this post for a book about the Canal I'm making. Please let me know at Thank you very much!
