Tinian with Grami

Grami at one of two covered holes where the Atomic Bombs were kept and then loaded into the Enola Gay. Inside the glass domes are pictures of the Bombs being loaded into the belly of the plane. It is really quite an amazing place to visit and to experience the incredible history of the Island.
Max at one of the Japanese shrines built pre-World War II...
Sera Ann staring in wonder at one of the lions guarding the shrine...
At the House of Taga on Tinian. This is an amazing site to see as these Latte Stones date back to ancient Chamorro times. They would build houses or important structures in the village on top of these pillars. The one here is 16 feet high...however they varied in size depending on the importance of the house/structure.
