Fall in Okinawa – Torii Beach

While everyone is enjoying the leaves turning, the cooler weather, the pumpkin spice EVERYTHING… fall in Okinawa looks a little like this; because the summer heat and humidity are still going strong!! On the bright side, the water is cooling down and it is absolutely heavenly. These pics were taken last month (#bloggingprocrastinationisreal), and it is a perfect depiction of fall on this tropical island! Are you jealous? Good, because i’m jealous of the amazing weather everyone else is experiencing. HA!

I had left my camera in the car the day before and I’m sooo glad I had it with me (I don’t usually bring it to the beach with me). It was the most beautiful day and I seriously could not stop taking pictures!!! Can you blame me though? Look at those shades of blue! We certainly live in paradise.

Christmas Wonderland at Mihama American Village

I had planned on going to most of the events on my Things To Do In Okinawa: Holiday Edition list, but I haven’t been in the holiday spirit much, because my husband has been gone for the past…

  • The blues of the ocean in Okinawa always take my breath away. We are go lucky that we can enjoy them well into fall, especaily with the heat we’ve been having.

  • So pretty! I never get sick of the ocean colour over here! I really need to get to the beach as much as I can before it (eventually) starts cooling down.
