Day 6 started out cool and drizzly. The days plans included a trip to "sea glass" beach, not it's real name but definitely it's "known by" name. My friend Jill had often times told me about sea glass beach, she had talked of how beautiful it was, and how on one end there were these little crabs she called blueberry crabs, that looked pretty much like someone dropped a bucket of blueberries on the beach...hell yes...if you know anything about me at all, you will know that my second form of therapy is picking wild blueberries for hours on end...in fact, my family will not blueberry pick with me...they do not understand why it takes me all day to pick...anyways, visiting sea glass beach was a definite highlight in my mind, and highly anticipated...so when the morning weather was slightly damp, questions were raised on whether or not to abandon the sea glass beach plan. I vote yes!! We are going to walk the beach, collect sea glass, maybe check out the blueberries...sunshine not required! I find walking alone on the beach searching for sea glass to be extremely therapeutic (yes, this is my primary form of therapy, I am fortunate to be able to do it whenever I please)...it doesn't take rocket science for me to know that walking on a beach nicknamed "sea glass" beach might possibly provide me with a lifetime of therapy...in fact...I am absolutely banking these memories into a "happy place" vault...for future times when I need to settle for a quiet morning by the fire and I can reflect on the memories of walking on "sea glass" beach in Okinawa. So yes, I hadn't even been yet, but in my mind I just knew I needed to experience it...rain or shine!!
And experience it, we did.
Breathtaking. Beautiful...and yes...Blue :)
(the photo info from the gps on my smartphone names this beach location as Nago, Okinawa Prefecture, Japan) Amazing technology we have
After our trip to the beach we went back to American village for some souvenir shopping and stopped at my new favorite coffee shop, Zhyvago Coffee Works Okinawa.
We took another walk along the sea wall...
and had a fabulous dinner at the Four Seasons steak house.
