"So, this is Okinawa" I hear this about ten times a day and I laugh every time. John has been an amazing host and has taken me on some adventures on this small island. Wednesday I did my normal library in the morning and beach in the afternoon. The weather was perfect in the afternoon and once the tide was high enough I put down my book and went for a swim. I got to snorkel without being thrown about and got to enjoy actually seeing what was around me with the water being a lot clearer than the last few days. I had just gotten done with my swim and was eating my favorite after snorkel snack, Nutter Butter Cookies, when I got surprised by a very handsome soldier who got off work a little early. I'm glad he was able to find me on the beach because I had found a secluded spot to myself and was enjoying soaking up the sun.
I really enjoyed getting to experience more of Okinawa off of base and hope to discover more in the short amount of time I have left. I hope you enjoy the pictures and I'll have more to come soon. Best wishes and enjoy your Fourth of July safely! I think we are going to try and find some fireworks to watch on one of the many bases on the island. Until next time!
