Getting Away from Atoll

It's about time I put up some photos of my two weeks on Ailuk Atoll in the Marshall Islands last August.

There are no motorboats on Ailuk. This is Rice, the owner of this sailboat. I paid him a pack of cigarettes to sail me to the northern-most island of the lagoon. On the way he did some fishing.

Taken from the northern-most island of the atoll, this photo looks south toward the rest of the atoll islands.

I stayed on the second floor veranda of a house overlooking the lagoon. Here is the view of a sunset from my veranda:
