Return to the City

We gave ourselves three days to putter around PC before The Folks returned to Canada.  The main goal was to take the good part of one day for the Miraflores Locks Museum and the Canal.  Once again we stayed at Country Inn and Suites located near the Amador Causeway.  We find that staying in Amador makes for easy access in and out of PC and the Causeway and the surrounding area offers some lovely places to get out and walk around and some good restaurants.  What we’ve found disappointing the last two times that we stayed there was that they will not honor our Jubliado Discount even though they have in the past.  We likely won’t be staying there again unless we have company coming in.  If we need to go to PC for some other reason we’ll find another place to stay that is less expensive.

The Amador Causeway extends about three kilometers into the bay.  It was built to calm the waters and prevent silt from building up at the entrance to the Panama Canal.  It connects three islands; Naos, Perico and Flamenco.  Along the Causeway are many restaurants and Flamenco is where the cruise ships dock so there is Duty Free shopping available.  There are beautiful views all along the Causeway.  From one end you can see the Bridge of the Americas and from the other side Panama Bay.  You can always see boats waiting to traverse the Canal.

The MIL and I also took a walk around the area one day.  The Folks had taken a walk and seen some interesting caterpillars and she wanted me to see them.  It was a beautiful blue sky day, perfect for a walk.

      Gracias! There is so much work leading up to it but it’s totally worth it in the end. Keep in mind now that we’re retired I have plenty of time to “muck about” with discovering things that work on the blogosphere!
