I was hanging out with some friends from Tinian at this place called YCC having a few brews. It was literally 25ft away from the ocean. The moon was out so I whipped out my set up and took a few long exposures. The first picture was taken looking at Aguigan, also known as Goat Island. This island can be seen from the highest peak on the island of Saipan. It’s also a great destination for all types of fishing. The second picture looks North of YCC, which looks onto the festival grounds of Tinian’s Pika Fest.
I recently visited the island of Tinian to attend the Annual Pika/Hot Pepper Festival. The island of Tinian is apart of the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands. It is approximately 5 nautical miles southwest of Saipan, and has a land area of 39 square miles. Tinian played a very crucial part in WWII due to the fact that the Atomic Bombs that were used for Hiroshima were stored on this island. Currently, the United States has been using the northern regions of the island for military exercises.
I participated in the race called the Dragon Boat Race, which you can see above. It was definitely harder than I thought. If the right side pulls harder than the left side, it will cause the canoe to go to the right. It requires rhythm and sync. Other than that, it was definitely fun. Unfortunately, the team I was on placed fourth out of four teams.
