Shurijo Castle

These are from a day trip Carrick and I took to Shurijo Castle Park. Shuri Castle has been around for a long time, but has been destroyed something like 8 times between fires and battles. It has been restored to it's original glory, which is rare for Okinawa. Most castles here are still in ruins. It was a fun day!

Crazy Cannon Ball Contest

Can you believe it? My husband, the one I have to force to swim, who sits on the beach under the pier in a t-shirt, and only tickles his toes in the water during pool PT, that one... he entered in a cannon ball contest!

We had a contest at the pool for Columbus day. It was a great event with food, DJ, and winners in biggest splash and costume categories. Carrick won for his costume, I think he was inspired by Hugh Heffner...

All the contestants.

Pulling off the Okinawa head-dress look.

My Version of the Owl Bag

This is my most recent Saturday craft. I got the idea from this post :

We've had a fun filled and long weekend. Carrick went golfing with a friend while I worked on Saturday and Sunday. Monday was the annual cannon ball contest at the pool. I worked and Carrick was a contestant. (Pictures will be coming :).
Carrick and I spent today in a castle and shopping. It was a wonderful Tuesday (Carrick has the day off for Columbus day). We're not excited about going back to work tomorrow though :(.
