Surrounding Beach, Boats, and Mountain range

These pictures were taken in October 2008 before the Bering Sea iced over and ended the crashing waves.
The mountain range in the distance with the weather beacon at the left.

These are the aluminum boats used for whaling and hunting seal, walrus, birds, and fishing when ever there is enough open water throughout the the Spring, Summer, Fall, and occasionally winter such as Thanksgiving 2008 when Savoonga landed 2 whales a few miles from the village before the ice closed in.
