...and through into Gatun Lake

The boat is through the first set of locks, having been raised some 26 meters above sea level in the process.  They'll be anchoring over night, and then heading on first thing in the morning.

Below is a photo from the webcam at the first set of locks.  (1808 local time, overcast and the sun was just setting, which accounts for the graininess of the picture!)  She's almost in the center of the photo, top, rafted up with another boat with a dark hull. In this shot, they're in the second lock, and have just started moving on to the third, out of frame to the left.

More to come tomorrow!
