We departed Miami at sunset........
.......on this very large Carnival Curse Liner. It was the first time it had been through the canal and they were not sure it was going to fit
The ship enters the canal lock and it is closed behind it.
The engine on the right actually tows the ship in.
You can see the cables running to it.
Water is then pumped into the lock raising the ship to the next level.
The water lever in the lock to the front is the level this one will be raised to.
The tow engine actually goes up the "hill" seen to the right front to get to the next level
This is where the Cliff Divers perform in Acapulco..
Try as I might, I could never get one in midair
Making tortillas the old way.
Ms Skunk loved the shopping and came home with a bunch of silver stuff.
