The main part of the island of Aitutaki is about 2 kilometers across by 12 long. On my first day on the island I decided to try and drive my scooter along every road on the island and see what I came across. My first discovery was that most of the roads are more tracks so it was pretty slow going (like they say, “you’re on island time now”).
This small deserted beach was found on the west coast of the island looking out across the shallow lagoon. Jumping off the scooter and grabbing my camera to take this photograph I noticed movement on the beach. This hive of activity was small red crabs running back into the sand.
