Here's another "Sail" for you beautress... these girls crack me up...
Think they're having some serious fun there, 007, nice music.
Those were surfers, and scuba diving is a real big thing here, too. Yes, there is an aquarium where they have whale sharks on display. Daughter says they bring them in to study them and then release them again. When I asked here where they kept such large beasts, smartass told me in really big tanks. I guess it's way up north so we might not have the time to get up there.
I've been watching every day. I'm not planning on leaving until next week, but I might get an idea what's available. Can't beat the price, fer shur.
I suspected the possibility, that's why I made sure they were just shells before stashing them in my bag.
Well, if you don't get to the Okinawa aquarium, you can go there vicariously as I posted some pictures of it and some really nice tropical-type fish that hang around in the lovely waters there: Click here, you're there, well a little >>> Sea Fever and the Ocean's Colorful Creatures <<<
My daughter took me for my first visit to a cat café. They had a variety of purebred kittens and to feed them treats cost about $11 for 10 minutes. If you buy the day pass, it's about $20. People refreshments were gratis, but no outside food allowed. Instant friendship, as long as the treats held out.
Glad to hear you finally got some decent weather, 007. That minus twenty stuff is yucky, imho, although some people like it.
Isn't it fun to see how people on the other side of the planet do things we'd never thought of, but seem like fun.
Oh, boy, howdie! While very different in many ways, Okinawa is small and there are lots of Americans here. You can still find a rare place that serves only Japanese, but most businesses sport signage in English as well as Japanese and many of the people speak enough English to do business with us.
I noticed that almost all the houses have grates or bars on the windows, even several floors up. I was puzzled because Japan is notorious for being relatively crime free, clean, and polite. Daughter told me that those are there to prevent typhoon damage. A lot of buildings look like concrete bunkers and have flat roofs. I'm guessing they don't have to shed a lot of snow?
