The sounds of the surf lapping up on the coral sand beach at Midway Island. Recorded in April of 2001. The waves never get very large as there is a coral reef several miles out that breaks up the large ocean swells. This is one of the few spots around the island that the Gooney Birds do not tend to congregate. As a result, you won't hear them here except for very faintly in a couple spots. Field recording using a Sony mini disk recorder. Transferred to digital via an analog path since I had no method for copying the digital file from the mini disk.
