Oceans and Seas » Atlantic » Atlantis March 21st 1975

Geo: 5.92935, 158.521In the morning Ard and I got up and packed. We had a small breakfast then we went to the airport. While we were waiting for the plane it started to rain but stopped soon. Nothing unusual happened on the plane. When we landed we got our luggage and go on the Continental bus. We stopped at this place so that we could get a car. When we got in our room I took off my shoes and was wiggling my toes and it hurt in the spot where something had entered my foot so I felt around down there and I felt something sticking up. I thought it was some layer of skin so I took my sock off and lo and behold there was a piece of wood sticking up from my ... read more

Geo: 5.38953, 162.555We got up. We had breakfast then walked down to the boat dock and started out for Nan Madol - some ruins made of stone dating back to 1400 AD. It took about 1 ½ hours to get there. We first went to the main fort and looked around. We saw the prison hole which is a hole in the ground which prisoners were put into. After we finished looking around there we went into a lot of the little side canals and saw a lot more. I got terribly sun burned. When we got back we just layed around until we went to bed.... read more

Geo: 5.38953, 162.555In the morning, nothing much happened. I watched some ladies making leis and did some other things like play. When it was time to leave we were given the leis that we saw the ladies making earlier. We had lunch on the plane. When we landed on the runway it was weird because the runway is at the edge of the water and there's no land until you're down. We got to Hotel Ponape and Ardie and I got separate shack from Mom and Dad. We just lounged around until dinner. Ate at Cliff Rainbow. Came back. Went to bed.... read more

Geo: 7.11046, 171.135Nothing much happened today except I got some shower shoes and Mom, Dad, and I went to the other end and the tide was out so in our shower shoes we went out a long way. We started on our way back, when the tide started coming in. On our way back it started to rain hard and guess who got drenched? Me! I went to a handicraft shop and bought Miss Glassford a gift. We had dinner at Oscar's house. Also we slept there again.... read more

Geo: 7.1881, 171.65Monday already? But it's still noon! Oh well. International Date Line. Mom and Dad met a man named Oscar Da Broom who was the Marshall Island District Administrator! When we got off the plane he drove us around and the only restaurant which doesn't even have a sign! Also, he showed us where we could get a car. After that, we drove to the far end of the island and back. Then we went to Oscar's and he took us out to eat. When we got back we went to sleep.... read more

Geo: 15.2842, -172.969It was a real warm night and at 6:15 we got our wake-up call so we got up and dressed. Then we went to the airport. We had to wait about 45 minutes before boarding. When we were airborne we had breakfast of egg omelet, orange juice, sausage, and roll. We just talked and fought until landing on Johnston Island. We couldn't get off because it was a military base. Nothing much happened except lunch until OOPS! International Date Line.... read more
