Despite all we go through as military spouses, I have to admit, sometimes this lifestyle has its perks. Getting paid to live in another country is kind of awesome. We’ve spent the last few days looking at some World Heritage sites here on Okinawa, mainly castles. The archeologist in me loves looking at these ruins and some of the views from the top of these are extraordinary. Above is a lonely cherry blossom tree at Nakijin Castle on the edge overlooking the water and landscape. During cherry blossom season it looks like a scene out of Kung Fu Panda and I love it!
I remember feeling like moving to Okinawa was the worst news in the world, “what did we do to deserve this?!?” and the longer I’m here the more I feel what a blessing it has been and how sad I will be to leave this little island that has so much to offer. Now I’m looking to enjoy my last year on the Island and counting down the days to our next adventure to Mainland Japan!
