Off to Managaha


We're going camping tonight on Managaha, a small island in the lagoon. It's only used for recreational activities--no houses, cars, etc. It's fun and the kids really love it. It's not unusual to be the only overnighters on the island and the last boat leaves at 4 P.M. so we're alone until the first boat comes out a 9 the next morning. Tonight the students and chaperones from our school will be there along with participants in a summer program with Beautify CNMI!, so it won't be quite as quiet as it normally is! With a full moon like we'll have tonight you don't even need a flashlight. The kids often like to sleep on the big beach with all the crabs scurrying around. It's nice--well, actually it's wonderful...

Yeah, it's pretty nice, right up until a crab or two crawls over Eden or Ezra, then there's no peace for the rest of us sleeping on the beach. They lie on us and complain about being pinched, when in reality the claws of the crabs that crawl around at night are really just too small to make any hurt at all. It's a pretty awesome place to play capture the flag though. And we used to do a lot of gymnastics out there too.
