This past weekend I hitched a ride on the safety boat as members of the Saipan Outrigger Canoe Club (SOCC) and a team from Guam paddled their way across the channel to Tinian in time for the great Fiesta feast.
An early morning start.
Calm waters and beautiful scenery.
About 4 hours start to finish for the team from Guam.
The Fiesta is a 4 day celebration of the islands patron saint. Saturday included a parade, crowning of the king and queen, and a huge feast (free to all) as well as a full line up of entertainment.
I met all the cooks and got to taste their works before anyone else!
Above is the line up for the feast! Below is the award winning Tinian Cultural Dancers!
Thankfully I was able to pitch my hammock in the dark and awoke to this view. Not a bad place to start the next day!
