South Pacific Campaign - Day #19

Jimmie and Ron had seen nothing of the island yet, so Randy & Sharon graciously offered their only working vehicle so that we could take a drive.  I have heard that a picture is worth a thousand words, so let me tell you about Tutuila.

Pago Pago harbor

Known as the Coxcombs in tourist books, but when we lived on the island our daughter Julie always called these thin rock slices The Dragon's Back

Fatu ma Futi

The open-air market

Downtown Fagatago

A large meeting fale.

The end of the road.  Tutuila has one main road that goes from end to end of the island but not all the way around.  When you get to here you have to turn around and go back.
