At right of photo, from left, Karen Anderson, Casey Anderson, Tommy Foley and Peace Corps volunteer Nick Eggers (a 2003 Point Loma High graduate) pose for a quick roadside picture outside Antisirabe, Madagascar, with a zebu cart driver and a copy of the Beacon. A zebu is a Madagascan cow with a humpback used for food and labor. These carts are the main form of commercial transportation in Madagacar because of the extremely pothole-ridden roads. They have a saying, “When the Mercedes breaks down, the zebu cart keeps rolling.” Nick just finished his two-year service and is currently traveling around Southeast Asia.
Richard and Louise Motta, Barbara Vargas and Gerald and Barbara Hosaka, members of Cabrillo Civic Club No. 16, take their Beacon along as they traveled through the Panama Canal. The shot was taken in Puntarenas, Costa Rica after the group disembarked from their cruise ship for an excursion of the town.
Future Point Loma High Pointers Isaac and Noah Chrisman take their favorite hometown newspaper to their beach house in Kitty Hawk, North Carolina.
Devon and Jake Donlon take their Beacon along for a beautiful view overlooking Honolua Bay in Maui, Hawaii.
John and JoLynn Collins have fun traveling all over Japan with the Beacon, feeding monkeys, climbing and sleeping on Mount Fuji, being at the grand opening of Harry Potter at Universal Studios and relaxing on the beaches.
