Journal Entry:
Woke up early to heavy rain and wind. I'd planned on driving around the island, but in the rain I decided not to. I worked on my H/PC until mid morning when the wind died. I drove down to the dive center to get my first stage regulator repaired. It took them about half an hour to replace a couple bad parts - I'm not exactly happy as I would rather they just gave me a new one but it should be ok now. By the time I left the dive center the rains seemed to have stopped so I headed on south around the island. I stopped in Aflleje Beach and got out to explore a bit - a pretty little cove with some sea cave and interesting rock formations. As I got back in the car to continue on around the island it started to rain again. The rest of the afternoon it rained on and off as I continued around the southern part of the island. The rain kept me from getting out and exploring, but at least I feel like I've seen a bit more of Guam. When I got about half way up the east coast I decided to leave the northern half of the island for next time and cut back across to Agana.

I had a coffee at a small cafe in Tumon and then went for an early diner at a steak house. I spent nearly two hours over diner and read Paul Coleo's The Alchemist - diner was good and the book was excellent, but I left feeling way to full. I'd been planning on going to the internet, but I couldn't find anyplace open so went back to my room to watch some TV and pack - tomorrow's departure means I have to be up at four.
