Panama Canal

the ship the passengers
It was a bright and sunny day when the intrepid travelers made their way to the great ship, Volendam.    It was to be a grand vacation cruise to the Panama Canal, but it seems that they made it to Florida, long before their luggage arrived.  (HAL photo) But, by evening of the day before the cruise, the luggage had arrived and the brave couple arrived at the gangplank to have this picture taken in their traveling clothes (which might have been all they had for the trip.)  (HAL  photo)

At five PM, the ship moved away from the dock in Ft. Lauderdale.   It slowly backed up and turned in the narrow harbor until it could head through the opening  towards the sea.

The ship was now heading through the outer banks towards the open sea. Mom gives a final look at the beaches of Ft. Lauderdale as the ship heads out to sea.
