 The Okeechobee Waterway

"Perhaps it was my proximity to Orlando that prompted me to liken the Okeechobee Waterway to an EPCOT Center version of the Panama Canal. The trip followed the same steps:  Locking up to lake level; traversing the lake; and then locking back down to sea level. The locks were smaller, the water hazards far less, and there were not enormous cargo ships or cruiser liners going through with us. For me, transiting the Okeechobee Waterway was like going through the Panama Canal Zone again, with all of the fun and none of the risks."
