Would love to get back and visit Midway Island.  Went to kindergarten there in 1960.  My dad flew sea planes in the Navy and Midway our home for a year or so.

Midway Atoll - Map showing the location of Midway Atoll in the Hawaiian island chain - Coral reef systems provide important habitats for seabird species, some endangered. For example, Midway Atoll in Hawaii supports nearly three million seabirds, including two-thirds (1.5 million) of the global population of Laysan albatross, and one-third of the global population of black-footed albatross. Each seabird species has specific sites on the atoll where they nest.

Before Patagonia, I spent a few days on the Midway Atoll in the Hawaiian Isands. Amazing colors!

Photos of dead baby albatrosses by Chris Jordan from Midway Island. The nesting chicks are fed lethal quantities of plastic by their parents, who mistake the floating trash for food as they forage over the vast polluted Pacific Ocean.

Midway Island- you can see the coral reef that surrounds the island...I still have some pieces of coral that washed up on the beach.

Midway Island, Pacific Ocean. Attacked for the first time by the Japanese on December 7, 1941, and the Japanese force was successfully repulsed in the first American victory of the war. On June 4, 1942, the U.S. Navy exacted a devastating defeat of the Japanese Navy. Four Japanese fleet aircraft carriers, the Akagi, Kaga, Hiryu and Soryu, were sunk, along with the aircraft carrier USS Yorktown (CV-5). The Battle of Midway was the end of the Japanese Navy's control of the Pacific Ocean.
