Guam: Days 3 & 4

Posted by Rosemary on March 31st, 2008

Hearts from Guam! This is Debra, a masage therapist & yoga intructor on the island, it’s almost her birthday, so this is a pre-birthday photo. Here chinese zodiac sign is Rat.
Another Guam local, this is Go Go Boots or as he is also known the Weadle. He complains a lot for a cat with a wonderful view.Yesterday, I had breakfast in a place called Michelle’s Coffee Shop, which is actually more of a Chinese food restaurant, I had a veggie omlet and some garlic rice, a nice combo really. I was then kissed by Senator Tina Muna Barnes, which was a very nice welcome to the island I must say. Then I went to an island bbq for a little while. After that I hung out for a few hours on Asan Beach. Which is also a WWII memorial park.
I found these lovely blue clay stones on the beach.In the evening we went to Jeff’s Pirate Cove for a few drinks and some delicious fries, yum. Today… well today I stayed inside for most of the day because the sun is causing my lily white Portland, OR complexion some trouble. All was not lost, I did get to have fondue for lunch!

Jefferson and I managed to catch some sunset on the beach at a lil beach bar called Jimmy Dee’s Beach Bar in Agana Bay. Jimmy Dee is the Don Ho of Guam, so I am told. I didn’t get to meet Jimmy Dee, but I have met “Pirate” Jeff. Hopefully all rashiness will be gone by tomorrow and I’ll have more to report.

Guam: Day 2

Posted by Rosemary on March 29th, 2008

Hi all,
Still having a wonderful time in Guam. Learning all about Chamorro culture & history; seeing amazing places. Lots of fun to be had here. There are several wedding chapels on the island… Maybe it would be a nice place for my next destination wedding. Anyone interested!? Check out the snazzy photos I got today. Notes of interest: Look at the Bear Rock photo, it looks a lot like a bear profile, doncha thing? And, look at that huge spider hanging above the little cluster of pink flowers. The place in the photo of the beach with my feet in the shot is where I had a lovely swim with lots of sea cucumbers. The shell on the blue chair still had an inhabitant. It’s kind of hard to see but in the photo above the sea shell photo there is a white mug that has washed ashore. We’re going to return there for some snorkelling later in the week. Underwater photos will be a must.
More soon.

Hey! I'm in Guam!

Hello everyone! I made it to Guam after many hours of travelling. And here’s photographic evidence.

Sunrise view from my friends house! Not bad, eh?

Some local
jungle flowers.

Island Wildlife.

Diane & Jefferson, My wonderful hosts.

An afternoon trip to Ritidian Point.

And then a lovely sunset. Not a bad first day in Guam!
Stay tuned for more photos from the other side of the world.
Hafa Adai.
