Our last day at the lodge started early. We had packed most of our things the evening before so we only had a few things to try to stuff back into our suitcases. After breakfast we got into the van with the South African couple we had met. It was their last day too and we would be dropping them off at a hotel in Panama City then we would head on to the airport. It was a 3 hour drive to the airport. We had a couple of hours waiting for our plane to leave for Houston.
We had a easy flight (first class is wonderful!). Mark and I both chose the new Star Wars movie to watch and we both chose steak for our lunch.
Our flight to Houston was about 4 hours. Then we had a couple of hours layover then a short flight to San Antonio. We landed in San Antonio about 11:00 p.m. CST and called the hotel to make sure the shuttle would be still be running. It didn’t take too long to find our luggage. When we walked out of the airport the shuttle driver was waiting for us. We were so glad to have a reservation at the hotel for the night!
Before we left home I looked at pictures I had taken at Canopy Lodge in 2006. I thought it might be fun to recreate some of those pictures.
Canopy Lodge was brand new and had only been open a couple of weeks when we visited in 2006. All the newly planted plants were a lot smaller than they are now!

Of course I bought a couple of magnets!
I hope you have enjoyed our 2018 Panama Journal to Canopy Camp Darien and Canopy Lodge. It was a wonderful trip!
