Sunny Lockwoodabout this book: When a texting driver slammed full speed into us as we were waiting at a redlight, she destroyed our summer in an explosion of metal and glass. Our car was totaled, our summer filled up with doctor appointments, physical therapist appointments, wrangling with insurance companies, and complaining about people who fool with their phones while driving.
But the accident also made us realize how fragile life is. How in a moment we could be lying in a morgue or in a hospital hooked up to monitors.
Grateful that we were not killed, we decided to start doing some of the things we'd always dreamed of. First on the wish list -- a cruise through the Panama Canal.
We wanted to turn something really bad -- the car wreck -- into something really good. Making a dream come true seemed like a perfect way to do that.
The Panama Canal -- one of the greatest engineering accomplishments of all time, the famous short cut between the Atlantic and Pacific -- proved unforgetable!
And the cruise to and through this amazing 50-mile watery trail, was filled with surprises, some spectacular, some we could have done without.
Book reviewer William D. Curnutt said: "Their writing is inviting, funny, contagious and just flat out a joy to read."
Cruising Panama's Canal is our first travel memoir. It was named a finalist in the 2014 National Indie Excellence Awards. In the fall of 2014, it was named an Amazon #1 best seller.
We loved making a dream come true, and then writing about it. We hope that our story might encourage you to do something you've always dreamed of doing.
