On Friday Diana and I picked the kids up a little early from school and headed north to Nago and the Kise Beach Palace. We thought it would be fun to stay in a hotel for the night. We lucked out and got a great deal on a beachfront hotel. Hotels here are very expensive, but with a special military discount, our room was 10,000 yen, only about $125, which is very cheap for Okinawa. Our room was on the 7th floor. We had a wonderful view from our balcony!
We changed into swimsuits and headed down to the beach before dinner. It was a great beach with 2 lifeguards and plenty of jelly fish preventing nets.
Parker found this shiny little green beetle and played with him for 20 minutes or so. He just loved this little bug. He talked and talked to him. It was so cute!
This was so much fun. I wish Josh would have been here though. We will have to do this again sometime with Daddy!
