So, what did I miss? :p

I had so much fun these last three weeks.

Lots of snorkeling, SCUBA, some kayaking. I got to see Humpback whales breach, played with dolphins (even got kissed by one), and was surrounded by boobies most of the trip!

Mostly brown and masked boobies, but I saw a number of blue footed and red footed as well. ;)

Also, the Panama Canal was pretty amazing.

Masked booby, we had these (and brown boobies, mostly) following us almost every day of the cruise on the Pacific side.:

Series of shots as the booby is diving for a fish:

Sea turtle (this picture was taken from the balcony of my room on the ship):

Off in the distance, are the locks that connect Panama to the Caribbean side:
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1iw_NN6ccMtRU7oXbA3IcggIFPkXRNZKf

We were parked in this spot, which is an artificial lake, for about 4 hours, waiting our turn to go through the locks to the Carribean.

Zoom in to the dead tree in the middle of this picture. Those are Keel billed Toucans.

A formation of pelicans:

Wish I knew what kind of eagle/hawk this is. Zoom in, he's sitting on the lights:
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1RpcOQGottuOZQrN63Vdf6PB6xWk8UYSB

Almost impossible to see, (wish I had a better zoom lens), but that gray blotch near the top of the large tree is a Harpy eagle. We got a good look at him through the binoculars, but my camera lens just doesn't have the zoom needed from that distance.
