I Vote for November

To all of you who are agonizing as to when to visit Okinawa, let me make a pitch for November. It is cooler, but still in the 20s. The sea is no longer bath-waterish but still delightful for water stuff, both above and below. There are flowers everywhere yet a just perceptible autumness, probably engendered by  the rice harvest.

I go for a ramble. I at last feel well enough to do stuff other than lie on a rancid sleeping mat. You know how it is.

This is how you dry rice.

Yep, a little constitutional around Okinawa in November is very, very pleasant.
