Live life to the fullest and start checking off your bucket list! After being hit by a car at a red light Co-Authors, Sunny and Al Lockwood decided it was time to start checking off some the items on their bucket list. What a better way to do so then with a cruise transiting the Panama Canal? In short, “Cruising Panama’s Canal” reads like a journal / diary of sorts where a 17 day journey is meticulously calculated with lavish description and detail. Everything, from sweet deserts, to the ships layout, to the building of the Panama Canal is perfectly presented in a way that will place you in the heart of incredible tip to Panama. I should mention that I have had the opportunity to visit Panama in the past and can vouch for the beauty that is described in this book. My only regret is that I wish this book could have been available for me back then. Without a doubt this astounding book will paint a vivid picture that will captivate your imagination as it sweeps on a 17-day voyage that will take you from San Francisco all the way down to Panama. If you’re a baby boomer, an active retiree, someone who loves to travel and has the time to do it, then this is simply the book for you. Be forewarned, this book is not your average travel guide. In-fact it is on a level all on its own. Both Authors are extremely versed in travel. Sunny is an editor and seasoned author while Al is a pilot, engineer, a minister, and veteran photographer. I mention this so that you are confident on the quality of writing and professionalism you receive when reading this amazing book. I definitely need to dust off own bucket list and can only vote 5 Stars for Sunny and Al Lockwood.
