We arrived a couple of days early for FC, as did some of the usual suspects. Here we see Ian, Nicko, Hinde, Lucky, Lisa, Matt, and Adam, after an evening out at dinner in the capital city of Hamilton.

These circular "moongates" (not to be confused with Stargates) were ubiquitous on the island.

Our hotel, as seen from the top of the lighthouse. You could actually climb outside the lighthouse and walk around the exterior railing.

These really cool lenses (reminiscent of Fresnel lenses) redirect much of the light emitted by the bulb to a more horizontal direction.

You can see the water in the cave. It's amazingly clear, and you can see the formations on the bottom (formed when the sea level was lower and the water didn't enter the cave).
