August Adventures in Guam

Howdy!

I can’t believe how quickly August has come and gone. Summer in The States is coming to an end and the rainy season in Guam is in full effect. Again, I put together a short video of some of my August activities. It’s funny looking back at the end of the month to see what I did. August was a peaceful month for me. I discovered a new beach that I hadn’t been to before. I also tried to bodyboard for the first time, which is actually quite difficult in Guam because inside the reef there aren’t any waves! At least I had fun trying and pretending I was awesome!

We also did some fishing, with no luck! I don’t know what we’re doing wrong. We had dinner at Jeff’s Pirate’s Cove where I had a chicken gyro and listened to the one man band.

I did a lot of staring up into the sky, laying on the beach and relaxing at the park! Sounds like a good month to me!

Walking Out to Alupang Island

Have you ever WALKED to an island? Yeah, neither did I until Peter showed me this place in Guam near Hotel Santa Fe where you can walk out to a small island. Alupang Island is maybe a mile from the beach in Hagåtña, but still within the reef. If you wade in the water toward the right direction, the water won’t get any deeper than your waist, allowing for an easy walk out to the island.  The first time I tried, we’d gone the wrong way and the water was so deep I couldn’t touch the floor. So I quickly swam back to the shore, only to try it again. The second time I went a little more to the left and I was able to make it all the way across!

The island is uninhabited and very small. The sand on  the island was a little larger, whiter and rougher. We walked around a bit to look at the plants and animals. We found a few coconut crab carcasses, geckos, lizards and fish. Then we laid in the water and let the sun shine on us. It’s very relaxing and away from other people so it was quiet. If you want to, you can pay to take a canoe or jet ski out to the island. I recommend walking!
