Sadly, we’re down to our last night in Guam. FG and I shed a few tears yesterday as we drove off Andersen. We’re really going to miss the friends we made in our short year here. And FG is worried there won’t be anyone her age in our NY neighborhood. Little does she know how much bigger the new post with be.
I thought a lot about Bennett, our lab who died here last October. Wish he were able to still be with us. I felt like we were
leaving abandoning him. Makes me doubly sad about our departure.
We’re staying at the WONDERFUL Pacific Islands Club in Tumon. We’ve stayed at a few hotels here on Guam, including the Hilton, Outrigger and Days Inn but this is the best so far. The room is large, service great and we’re within walking distance of the Jamaican Grill and Proa restaurants. FG is in her glory ~ they have a huge waterpark here where she and FM are currently getting their fill of the slides, kayaks and snorkeling in the salt water fish-filled pool. I, on the otherhand, would love to be sitting on the balcony looking out on Ypao Beach and the ocean but the only location in our room where the wi-fi is “excellent” strength is in the middle of the, thankfully, large bathroom. I’m perched on a rather uncomfortable chair. Ah, the things I do to keep this blog updated 😉
I’m using my clunky old laptop which I think is about 4-5 years old so I don’t know how successful I’m going to be with photos of our island-hopping. I can’t imagine the island of Majuro has any better internet connections than this hotel BUT you never know.
