The Whole Story
  A Swing with a View

17-mile beach was as pretty as I had hoped. Its name, by the way, comes from the fact that it is at mile marker 17, not because the beach itself is 17 miles long. Though considering that we're on an atoll, technically we are almost all beach. At many places, in fact, the road is within 100 yards of the lagoon on one side and the ocean on the other.
