31st October, 27 degrees, cool wind, beautiful sunshine! October and November are the best months in Okinawa.
We go for a drive up a little bit of the East Coast. My companion is Japanese and she points out so many things that I have never noticed or been aware of, even after nearly 10 years on the island. I realize I have only just scratched the surface of what Okinawa has to offer.
For example, we stop at an unremarkable building by the side of a harbor. I have passed it before and have taken it for some sort of administrative office. It turns out to be the most wonderful fish restaurant. I cannot read. I miss so much.
We go to a couple of fish markets.
Okinawa is so beautiful! Never more so than at this time of year.
