The day after the luau (see http://www.optimimagery.com/CNMI-ON-LAND/SAIPAN/September-18-2010-OLD-MAN-BY/13845688_jCci5#1014900304_P38mS ), Brad and I want back up to the cliff to see if we could get some turtle photos.
From SEPTEMBER 19, 2010: TURTLES, TROPICBIRDS (and a SHARK -- Oh my!)
2 turtles just below the surface.
We are about 125 feet above the water level as I take these photos.
As we stand out in the hot sun in the muggy humidity, the water looks refreshing enough to almost be scary!
Tropic birds were a welcome surprise. I have tried to go to different areas to photograph these guys before, but have found that I am not usually good at predicting where they will be roaming.
Then, to top if off, this blacktip reef shark came meandering by. Cool!
