Playing tourist in Lower Tumon Guam with my Canon T3i

It’s been a long time since I posted some pictures about Guam. Well now that I have my handy dandy Canon T3i(I dont know why they nickname it “Rebel”) I have revisited the famous Lower Tumon today making the stroll at around 10:00 am and luckily is not yet a so busy time. Usually tourist like Japanese, Koreans, some Filipinos, some howlies, and a very few Russians stroll here to shop.
First stop is Burger King in Lower Tumon

I have been planning to take pictures of Tumon along the San Vitores road and also the Tumon Bay. I got A chance this morning to wake up early, about 4:45 am, but to my disappointment the sun was not up early today. I contented myself taking pictures of the different places I have been in Tumon. The dim light makes it hard for me to get a good shot so I just click any chances I got.

Holiday Inn, I parked the pickup here. Its kinda safe here and that I was planning to walk along the beach but it was too dark

There is a ride here called Sling shot. It was too dark for me to get a picture of the structure so I content myself with the marker.

Across this structure is where Guam’s Las Vegas style shows are shown, the Sand Castle.

I walked from the left side to the right side of San Vitores Road hoping that the sun will be up by the time I got back to Holiday Inn but its already 5:40 am and yet its still dark. Next time I will be just on the right time to catch a perfect picture of Tumon Bay.

Luna

Today is in contrast with Monday evening when I took these shots.

The moon was just nice to look at when it has a blue background.

Two Lover’s Point


Got this photos during my “around the island” experience here in Guam. These pictures were taken in the Two Lovers Point(Puntan Dos Amantes). It is a cliff where it was believed that two lovers, a girl of Spanish and Chamorro descent and a Chamorro boy, jumped due to the forbidden love that they have.

Since then this place has been a place where people want to be married. On the sides of the park a list of couples who got married are engraved in plates mounted in the wall.

Also there is a view deck where you can see the entire Tumon Bay and the Tumon area, and the Philippine Sea.
