I recently moved to Guam for my newest duty station. It's similar to Hawaii in some ways, but definitely has it's own culture and feel. There is quite a bit of history here, from the Japanese and Americans in WWII, the Spanish from the mid 1500s through 1898, to the ancient Chamorro (the original inhabitants of Guam). Here is a sunset from a bridge the Spanish built as part of an incomplete road that was supposed to run from their main seaport of Umatac in Southern Guam, to their capital, Hagåtña, in central Guam. The second picture was taken just on the other side of the bridge. I'll try to post a few more pictures I've taken since moving here over the next few days. I edited these a little in Lightroom, with my limited knowledge and ability. Please feel free to comment on what I could do better, either in Lightroom, or with the picture in general.

I used to go to Guan years ago (1980s) in support of a COMNAVSECGRU program. I always enjoyed my time there. The guys there would take me to a swimming place called "Sharks Hole", "Two Lovers Leap" and even down to "Tweed's Cave". Do you know the "Tweed" story? I am sure that you can find it on Google. OBTW - I'm retired Army.

I just went to Shark's Hole and Two Lovers Leap a few weeks ago. I dropped my phone in the water at the end of the beach at Sharks Hole though, so I'll have to go back sometime to get pictures again. As for Tweeds Cave, I just hiked to Double Reef Beach yesterday which apparently goes right past the cave. I didn't know about the cave until I was looking up the hike afterwards. Guess I'll have to go back to that one too.
