Daily Post Photo Challenge : Connected

The challenge for this weeks Daily Post Photo Challenge is Connected.

This post  portrays the connection between the Atlantic Ocean (via the Caribbean Sea) and the Pacific Ocean : The Panama Canal.

My wife and I transited earlier this year on the Queen Victoria. It was a memorable passage.

This is a rather unusual view of the canal from a first floor cabin!
