Ferris Wheel

Outside of the base I lived in on Okinawa, there was a great big ferris wheel!

At night, it would light up and flash all sorts of pretty colors.

One day, I finally decided I'd go up on it!
And I got to watch the sunset over the ocean while riding. :o)It was beautiful.

(PS - the wheel lit up just as I was exiting it! How exciting is that?)

Not a Writer

I admit it. I'm not a writer. Not only do I not write well, but I apparently don't enjoy it. Thus, no blog posts. So, instead enjoy one of my adventures through pictures:
I blew a glass! (Okinawa is rather well known for their glass work.)
Turned it into a "goya" (bumpy bitter cucumber thing you find all over Okinawa) tumbler! (Further explanation: it's a goya tumbler because it has a bumpy texture on the outside, similar to a goya.)Then celebrated with some banana soft serve!
