    The top photo is a battle ship in Miraflores Lake as it approaches Pedro Miguel locks. Miraflores locks is seen in the background. The middle photo is Pedro Miguel locks, the ship is south bound. An interesting point of the photo is both the Hercules and Ajax floating cranes off to the right at Paraiso Dredging Division before they moved to Gamboa.
