Her Special Day

It was her special day. Their special day, but as far as he was concerned it fell upon his shoulders to make sure it was special for her. Hundreds of miles away on her special day. He awoke early, as is typical on a weekend day off, to play...

Blue Hole

This is reportedly Guam’s most popular dive, the Blue Hole. A vertical shaft extending at least 300 feet deep, with the shallowest exit being a horizontal “window” at about 127 feet, the Blue Hole is a big enough attraction that the local dive shops sell t-shirts to those who...
