The Pause

Several of my American friends have referred to the period we are living through as the Pause. I think it is an apt description.

Here in Okinawa we are still asked to stay at home and refrain from traveling around the island. Social interaction is very limited. I have only seen one friend all week and that was a bemasked boat trip to watch the sunset.

It was not a very good sunset.
We ate well
Prawn and avocsdo, bacon and stuff, deep fried shrimp on choucroute. Thanks Hoppepan.
Got back very late. Masks on boats, strange days.

I still get mail. Most is from the local government about health insurance. I am still, after nearly 10 years, entranced by the Japanese approach to official communications. So playful.

This is my health insurance bill. 38,500 yen for a year of total coverage!
More health related stuff. Happy family.

My great friend Hanada san now only opens her wine store on Saturday and Sunday afternoons. She keeps me bottles that she thinks I will like.

Such fun. Each time I pop in she is bubbling with excitement and proposes a selection of interesting wines.

Here is a video about my kitchen.

Sad really if the most exciting video I can make is about my kitchen sink.

There is a small typhoon on its way. That should brighten things up. The boat is beautifully covered and well attached to the pontoon.
