    A real vacation!

    I'm off (leaving Sunday morning) on a 21 day cruise!

    This is the first real vacation the wife and I have had since 2013.

    Itinerary: https://www.ncl.com/cruises/21-day-p...riesPageSize=3

    Ya'll be good. Try not to let the world burn down.

    Hopefully, I'll have a lot of cool pictures to share when I get back.

    So, what did I miss?

    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):

    The jungles of Panama:

    Frigate bird:

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

    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=1Rp...df6PB6xWk8UYSB

    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.
