The weather was not great and we had to wait over a week before we got our chance to snorkel over Million Dollar Point. When the troops pulled out of Vanuatu, they left behind a lot of military equipment which they offered to sell to the islanders at 10c on the dollar. The islanders got greedy, however, and figured that since the yanks were leaving anyway, the stuff would all be there for the picking and refused the offer. The yanks couldn't tolerate that and shoved all the equipment into the sea, hence the name Million Dollar Point. Makes for great snorkeling, anyway. The beach itself is littered with metal parts.
Jim also dove on the USS Coolidge, something he'd been looking forward to ever since we entered Pacific waters. Will have to ad film later.
