Our sixth stop was Fanning Island.....

 
There is no electricity or indoor plumbing on Fanning Island - so you are only going to be here for 3 or 4 hours, because after that, you need a bathroom.  One of the nicest houses here....
 
 
The water was very clear, but the ship told us not to go swimming because there are no bathrooms
so everything washes into the ocean.

 
The truck costs $10, and takes you around the town - very bumpy ride.  Fortunately, you only go about 5 miles.  The economy is seaweed and coconuts.

 
I heard that they had two computers, wifi, and I did see some solar panels. Another cruiser told me that he entered their password, and was sending out e-mails.

 
All the houses looked like this - and this is a store....

 
When we got back to the tender, they had lemonade and iced water, but no bathrooms.  You would think that they would have a porta-potty here because there was a market, and you want to keep the cruisers here as long as you can.


Well water... picture taken from truck so a little blurry. 
  
 
When I was getting back on the ship, a woman got on the elevator and her leg was bruised and bloody.  She said that she had been invited into a house and when she went to leave, there was no steps, and the man put out a plastic pail, which she fell through.
 

Interesting to see for about 3 hours, but nothing spectacular.
