Panama Canal Cruise January 12, 2011
Huatulco, Mexico
At sunrise, we approached Bahia de Santa Cruz, the port for the Huatulco area, and were met by not just the pilot to guide in the ship, but also by gun toting in camofllaug uniforms.

The boat (with the guys with guns) clears the path ahead of us. (above left) Not sure if they were protecting the small boats or that we might throw some sort of contraband overboard. Seemed like once they thought the occupants of the cruise ship couldn't do mischief, it was time to take off. (lower right)
