Ikei Island

Beach Day!
The weather has finally turned around on the island...blue skies, warm sun, cool breezes.  Perfect beach days.  We decided to take the new grandparents out to Ikei Island where there are stunning beaches.  Here are some fun photos of our day at the beach.

Shuri Castle, Okinawa


Shuri Castle sits on top of a hill overlooking all of Naha City,  with beautiful views of the Pacific Ocean and the East China Sea.  It was first built during the 14th century!!!  And has been burned, bombed and rebuilt several times.  One of UNESCO World Heritage Sites...it is a must see on Okinawa. 

Family outing!

The throne for the ruler of the Ryukyu Kingdom...



Maybe we should all lay naked in the sun when we are cranky.

Cinder loves him.  Except when he cries and she walks into the other room.

Crazy Cinder

Our pooch loves having a new little man in the house...However, she hasn't been getting as much attention as usual.
