Caption in scrapbook: Others had been there
Long before Crossroads, Bikini's simple people had buried, in a little cemetery near the lagoon, the bodies of chiefs and their wives and their children -- and had marked the graves with plain headstones cut to special shapes. The cemetery still stands by the lagoon, its white fence sagging, in places, but still outlining what had been a sacred soil.
