With much trepidation, I agreed to try a ‘medium’ rated Boonie Stomp. Whew, this one was just as beautiful but so much easier. Wonder if John carrying all the water helped!? The hike was along the coastline from Gun Beach to Tanguisson Beach along the base of Puntan dos Amantes (Two Lover’s Point):
We passed Nikko Hotel’s Latte park:
At one end of Gun Beach, we saw the Japanese 20 cm coastal defense gun and this photo includes Dave Lotz, the organizer of the stomps, a 30+ year resident of Guam, writer of several Guam guidebooks and let me tell you, the man knows his stuff:
John and Logan with resort row along Tumon Bay in the background:
On the hike, we saw bright BLUE starfish (on my wish-list: underwater camera), a baby coconut crab and beautiful flowers:
It was a another great way to spend a Saturday morning and again, we met some really nice people. In fact, I got to meet the man from the other of the two Guam-based blogs that I enjoy reading. His blog, Tales of Brave Ulysses, is about a lot of different subjects and is fun to read. I don’t agree with everything he writes, but he is very witty, intellectual and will make you think.
Next Saturday’s hike: Rated Difficult ~ wish me luck.
