    @N F C and @drumstick diva as promised, I found a few pics and 1 of the squid taken on a night dive. Base Commanders House, Air Field Welcome sign, and a few pics of trigger fish, surgeon fish and convict fish on the near shore lagoon reef. And a pic of some dummie ;) that just had to go to work out there, in the middle of nowhere Pacific Ocean. Also, a video that will give a better picture of Johnston Atoll. Enjoy!
    Welcome to Johnston Atoll!

    Your pictures remind me of my time in the FL Keys...beautiful. Come to think of it, I was there for about 3 years too :D

    Trigger fish are good eating, right? I think that's what I had once for dinner with my brother & his wife while in the Bermudas.

    Yeah, some people eat trigger fish...I really don't care for it. Give me a good, fresh swordfish steak, yum!

    Thanks Sean loved the music and video. Never heard of Trigger fish but, wouldn't expect them to be tasty.
