Stunningly, I actually got out of my apartment on this lazy Sunday. Yes, I woke up late. Yes, I lazed about the house for a good part of the day.
But I also managed to get out. I went to the bookstore and browsed for a while ... the bookstores here really suck. They're way behind, not very big or comprehensive and missing a lot of what you'd expect from a mainland bookstore, but at least it's a bookstore. Didn't find anything I liked, except a couple cards (Mother's Day is coming up!!)
It was early evening as I headed home, so I drove a little further down to Adelup, a combination park and the main office of the governor — it used to be a school, way back when. Anyway, I parked and got out of my truck (see, Chrissie and grainne ... sometimes I get out of my truck! LOL) and actually walked around along the beach a bit.
*pauses here for stunned silence and jaws hitting the ground*
The sunset was gorgeous. I'll try to get some of the pics up on DZER's Guam Pics in the next day or so.
This is a hermit crab I found crawling around the beach. Ain't he a tiny cutie? Click on the pic to see it bigger and in more detail.
This one's a little sandcrab. Can you see it? It was harder to pick out against the sand originally — I upped the contrast a bit so it's a little more clear. Found it yet? Heh.
Random Guam Fact Of The Day:
• The Chamorro word for hermit crab is "dukduk" (rhymes with hook-hook). The name comes from the sound you make to encourage the crab to come out of its shell ... dukduk .. dukduk ... dukduk
