Fall in Okinawa...

It's hard to believe it's fall here in Okinawa since the weather has been in the 70's all month. It makes me actually miss the fall weather back home. There's nothing like wearing a warm fuzzy sweater sipping a coffee at Starbucks watching the leaves fall off of the trees....Okay so maybe NOT Starbucks... We DO have them here on Okinawa too... :)

I heard from the inlaws that temperatures back at home are falling to the 30's....BRRRR.....

On a second thought...maybe it's not that bad here... :)

We had a nice Thanksgiving--celebrated with a dozen new friends. We had a 20 pound bird, ham with pineapple sauce, stuffing, and lots and lots of fixings: green bean casserole, creamed corn, steamed carrots, mashed potatoes...

The weather will be even hotter for us for Christmas. Kev and I plan to fly to Abu Dhabi in the United Arab Emirates to visit my parents (the Barnetts). My brother Julian who is currently living in Germany will be there, so it will be nice to see everyone.

In the meantime, I thought I would post a few photos of my rooftop garden. You can see my herbs are doing very well. Hope everyone had a good Turkey day.

Behind the balcony, is that the ocean view you were referring to?

Goodness...that is beautiful. I would never want to leave that balcony!
