I just took a 30 minute armchair trip to Kwajalein . It is indeed tiny; a microcosim of garden would be grand (above and below the water). At least there is a drum and pipe band there to keep things intersting ;) Your article was lovely. thanks for sharing.
I took a similar trip after Shari's article about orchids - I spent a lot of time reading posts of folks who were trying to locate other folks who were both on this tiny island at the same time 20 years ago, one person trying to locate her birth parents, a little like those missing persons or "have you seen?" sites that went up after Katrina. Very touching. I didn't explain very well but it's all good. How is one a member and not a paid subscriber?
Carrie - didn't understand your question. Here on DG? Or on the "have you seen" site? I am always amazed at the number of sites about Kwaj...more sites than there are people out here! But it is sometimes a transient community, so I guess that explains it, and once you have been here it gets under your skin and you want to share that, but no one understands unless they have been here too, hence all the sites. Funny how that works.
Members don't have access to a lot of the things that subscribers do. I have been a subscriber since like the 2nd day of viewing DG...I just can't imagine having all this wonderful information blocked from me...not to worry, my brain goes zooming by allatime...I need a longer leash!
