Gun Beach

On Saturday, December 5 the senior missionaries went to Gun beach to get some exercise and enjoy the beauty of this island we live one. Why is it called Gun Beach?
During WWII the Japanese used this beach to fight off the invading Americans. Because of all the beautiful vegetation they could use the guns without being seen. There are also many caves along this part of the beach that they could hide in. Here are a few of the pictures we took that morning!
These are the senior couples in our mission, In the back E/S Guerico, E/S Hamilton, S Thomas, E Thomas behind her and me, of course Art took the picture so he didn't have to be in the picture! Here are some of the pictures of the beach and the creatures living in the water.

A latte stone is the term for a pillar capped by a hemispherical stone capital with the flat side facing up. Used as building supports by the ancient Chamorro people, they are found throughout most of the Mariana Islands. It's a little hard to see because of the moss that has grown over them, they are truly found all over this island.
 At the top of the picture is Two Lovers Point, we have picture of it earlier in the blog when we were there.
