ahnd atoll

last weekend, i took a boat ride to an outer atoll. it was pretty freakin' beautiful.

we ate freshly caught wahoo and lobster for dinner. (wahoowa, anyone?)

we saw a waterspout!

there was a full moon, and it was crazy bright all night. not so good for admiring the stars, but excellent for our lobster-hunting adventures.

here we are!

ready for the sad part? climate change projections are that all atolls worldwide will be under sea level by 2050. while the cold facts are that the number of people living on atolls is negligible, globally speaking, its heartbreaking to consider that such beautiful cultures and sites are about to be complete history.
