The island of Rota

Just a short flight away from Guam, the isle of Rota is part of the Commonwealth of the Northern Marianas Islands and physically similar to Guam. However, it’s much smaller; only 10 miles long and 3 miles wide. Our last vacation from Guam with our good friends was a quiet time enjoying the best of the tropics. We had four days on an island with less than 5000 people, 2 gas stations, 1 golf course and NO street lights. The pace was nice and slow. We snorkeled on a beautiful reef and will get some photos and video of our boat trip up later. Two turtles and a shark joined us for a swim. The bird population has been decimated by the brown tree snake on Guam, but not on Rota, the birds had free reign around the island and especially at the bird sanctuary on the NE coast. It was good to see the flying creatures again. Check out other trip photos on Recent Photos to the right.

Here’s Davis after catching his first crab with a trap he found at the beach.
