Better late than never....Yoron!

Sorry for the delay, but you know how it is, you take pictures and then it takes you forever and day before you download them, right?

Back in early November, Kevin's best friend from high school, Jari came to visit us. He was only here for a week but we were able to take a small weekend getaway trip to the small island off the coast of Okinawa called Yoron. After a 2 and half hour ferry ride from Motobu, we arrived on the lovely quaint island of Yoron! We stayed at a resort called Pricia Resort there. During our trip, we biked around the island, ate lots of great food, and even went snorkeling!

So without further ado, here are the photos from our trip....


-This is Yurigahama beach. This beach has a sandbar which is only visible several times a month. You can walk out to the sandbar when it is exposed. Unfortunately when we were here, we did not see it.

-Another view of the beach, the water here was a bit colder than what we were used to. Perhaps this is because we live on the East China Sea and this was the Pacific Ocean?

-We biked a bit around the island and came across a very strong 'alcohol' smell. Then we found the source! Awamori....Awamori is a type of liquor made here on Okinawa. It's made from rice and is pretty much 100% alcohol.

-Here's a photo of the beach condo we stayed in.

-A shot of Jari and I on our walk down to the beach.

-Our last night, we had a BBQ at our table.

-Take a look at the spread. Soooo much food!

Thanks for visiting Jari! Come and visit us again soon....
