I'm sight seeing. Again. Yes, sight seeing!
I love taking a stroll around the island midday with the sun hanging over head illuminating our beautiful forests and the unique creatures that live there. Every weekend, I always find the time to take my family around the island for a leisurely stroll as an excuse to get out of the house. I enjoy watching the waves break on Banzai Cliff and carefully scanning the water for turtles, feeling the cool breeze on the highest point of Suicide cliff where gravity is defied by the rising raindrops. You can head down from Suicide Cliff and go to the Grotto, a local swimming and diving spot and cool down from the sizzling heat. Further down the road is Historic Kalabera Cave with its wall drawings etched by locals during World War II. Down south, along Beach Road, the crystal clear water glistens in your eyes and has a hint of red from the reflection of blooming Flame trees that align the pathway.
Although I have stayed on Saipan for over 20 years, I can never get tired of such beauty we have been blessed with. Litter, more homes/buildings, and carelessness threaten these beautiful sights I love to visit. Whether you’re feeling down in the dumps, or stressed from being cramped up in the office all day, step out and ease your mind with a beauty that’s one of a kind.
Only on Saipan!
