Hubby was gone this weekend. He was supposed to be gone gone, but instead he is only gone. That probably makes no sense and it is slightly confusing to me too.
By plans changing, he ended up being around Friday night. We had planned to go see Transformers 3. It was the opening night on the island and it was only showing at one theater. You know how military theaters are on base, there is only one screen. I got there early to stand in line for tickets and they sold when I was about 10 people from the front of the line. Instead, we went out to dinner. We went to a new place, no idea what it’s called, but it was GOOD!
Saturday, hubby called and said he was still around and did we want to come up to eat with him. Of course! The birthday party we were planning on going to was canceled, so we had no other plans. I skyped with Little Man first and Little Missy and I headed hubby’s way. Turns out he was in a meeting when we got there, so we went and had ice cream then headed to the beach. We just walked around, but she cried and pitched a fit when we left!
She found a crab, but she thinks they are snails. She patiently waited for it to emerge.
All that walking and playing turned into this.
Sunday, I decided we would drive around and explore. There are numerous smaller islands around the main island of Okinawa and most are connected by bridges. We drove to five of them – Henza, Hamahiga, Ikei, Miyagi, and another one that I don’t think was named. I’ll do another post on all those. When we were driving home, we passed the Katsuren-jo castle ruins, so we stopped to check those out. By the time we got home, she was pooped. It’s funny because we didn’t really do anything this weekend, but then we did a lot!
