A festive carabao at the Yona fiesta. Pretty dapper, huh?
Obsessed with her flower crown -- otherwise known as a pandana.
And here's Do'ak the real carabao!
Do'ak and I ready for our close up. Don't ask me what face I'm making here. He started to move so I was't sure what to do.
Outfit #1: Jacket: Old Navy; Dress: Parker, borrowed from Heather (similar style here); Sandals: J.Crew; Bag: Pour La Victoire c/o; Sunglasses: Karen Walker
For one of our final days on the island, we packed as much as we could in -- to savor every last moment! We kicked off the morning at a fiesta in the village of Yona. Predominantly Catholic, Guam's villages (there's 19 total) have a dedicated patron saint that they celebrate once a year. As luck would have it, Yona's is Saint Francisco, fitting for this Bay Area girl. Fiestas are thrown by everyone in the village so it's not uncommon to "fiesta hop" -- think tons of food, dancing and music -- with the occasional carabao ride thrown in.
Josie and I then headed to Gun Beach where we enjoyed some downtime of, well, doing nothing but listening to the ocean roll in and reflect on how I didn't want to leave.
Now that I'm back in SF, with my bags (sorta) unpacked, I personally want to thank everyone who made this trip possible. Huge thank you to the Guam Visitors Bureau for inviting me out -- and being so incredibly kind to me during my stay (Mark, Josie and Felix, I'm looking at you!). Here's to the start of many more Guam trips in the future! I didn't get to go scuba diving this time -- so I got my rain check ready. Be sure to check out all my other posts from the island here: Day 1, Day 2, Day 3 and Day 4. Hafa adai!
