| Orote Point on the Naval Base
This is a point on the island I really wanted to get to, and get back to. The Navy keeps it closed most of the time do to hazardous operations they perform at a pier close by. By far this is one of the most beautiful places on the island. Probably since it's hard to get there. It's quite a hike down to the beach but well worth it. During WWII the United States used Orote Point as an airstrip. There is suppose to be a crashed Corsair still around it somewhere. But I've heard it's not worth the trip to see it since it's been stripped bare. (September 2000)

Orote Point from the Ocean (November 2000)
After a couple of big storms passed off the coast of Guam I decided to go get some ocean pictures. I found my way to Orote Point and it was open for a change. I didn't feel much like walking down to the water. I was under the weather a bit. But I took some interesting pictures of the storm waves and some of the historical signs about COMNAVMAR, (the main Naval Base on Guam.) (August 2001)

I hereby give permission to use the photographs I have taken as you may see fit. (Not that I could stop you.) I would appreciate an E-Mail informing me if you decide to use any of them. Also, I do have larger versions of the majority of the pictures I've taken. So if you would like one sent E-Mailed to you let me know. Enjoy.
