Today, I spent the day with two of my Best Friends. They are always there when I need them, give the best hugs, and never get annoyed if I complain too much.
|Chesty loves riding in the car!|
|Murphy is just enjoying the scenery!|
After staying in all day yesterday trying to recuperate from a head cold, the boys and I were ready to hit the road and get away from the base! We headed up North on some roads we have never traversed. Along the way, we found new beaches, some parks, and tons of sakura, also known as Cherry Blossoms.
In Okinawa, Sakura season is a very popular time of year. It symbolizes the coming of Spring and new growth. Enjoy some pictures from our journey.

|Two islands in the distance.|
|A dam where we hiked. It was so reminiscent of Kentucky with rolling hills in the distance and thick greenery surrounding a quiet, calm lake.|
|Don't feed the injured fish other fish? Maybe the fish in this dam are vegetarians!|
|View from the top of the dam's hiking trail.|
|Blue waters- a quick reminder that this isn't Kentucky!|
|Many of the roads had sakura hanging over them. Pretty!|
|Heading toward the top of a mountain!|
|They paint the roads red to indicate sharp turns and steep inclines. Maybe to replace the road signs people would steal. ;)|
|Grandma and Grandpa Addis would love these blossoms!|
|Cherry blossoms here are bright pink, but in mainland and DC, they are lighter pinks.|
|Sakura in full bloom!|
We hope you enjoyed our adventure! :)
