Three hour tour....**updated**

OK, I'm on a computer now and have a bit more control over the photos and how to post them without issues, so "on with the show"
 What we looked like - this is the "twin" to us that was on the river the same time we were, but really, it's the best way to show comparison of sizes to the local flora.
 Lots of baby Needle fish in the water
... and one that the "guide" caught for us.  He was a cute little fish.
 The kids leaning over with bread to toss to the catfish that were in the area.  Very murky water, but doesn't appear to be too deep around here - silty river.  The outlet where it comes out is where the family surfs - again very brackish water, but they don't seem to have many issues with sharks in the area.

Huge 6' or taller ginger plants, they smelled so good!!

Look up in the crack area ... do you SEE that????
 What is it???? It's a bee hive.  yep, natural bee hive on the hill.  Pretty good sized one too!
 We climbed up a little incline to a "cave" wich was more of a dent in the wall - lots of spider webs in there, but B had no fear!!

Sometimes it just pays to look up and take a random shot of the sky between the leaves of the trees  Very peaceful here.

This is a natural spring area - it's feeding in from the left and flowing out to the right - there are times when the tide is coming in that the water is overwhelmed with brackish water, but they said in slack tides the water is cool and fresh.  (No, I didn't taste it)

Those big balls on there are seed pods for this plant - each bump is a seed - thus they spread quite well!

Linda trying on the hat Ella got during the "demonstration time"

While walking out they had a few animals in cages.. one was a crab - we had seen a few smaller ones in the wild where they would toss bread to them to encourage them to come out to eat... I had wanted to see one, but it was shocking to turn around and have it RIGHT THERE!  B is not standing that far behind him... he is HUGE!!!
 My thumb is almost touching the fence...
 The squares of the chain link should give you a clue just how BIG these things are!  They are quite impressive and I'm glad I didn't see one coming out of it's hole to say "hi" while we were at the beach!!!!  Angela saw it and said it's rather spider looking... I have to agree.  YUCK!!

So that was our last adventure in the wilds of Guam!  What a trip it was!!!  Tandy and Damian were the BEST most gracious hosts to put us all up and show us around.  What a treat!
