**No, these are not Newport, Rhode Island photos! Just setting myself up for Google to establish myself there ahead of time.**
I have joined in with some other talented ladies from Clickin’ Moms to showcase the different places that we live. I wanted to join in especially this year because I’ll be living in 2 completely different places and love to see the juxtaposition of it all.
After living in the same state for 22 years I have since been fortunate enough to live in such a variety of places that have so much to offer. I’ve been on both US coasts and now the beautiful island of Okinawa in Japan. I try to never take this for granted and even in those areas that I don’t particularly fully embrace I thank God for being able to have these opportunities. In these last 9 weeks here in Okinawa I find myself getting sentimental about leaving here. I’ve only been here 2 years and feel like there is much more to see so I’m cramming in as much as humanly possible!
There is one lighthouse on Okinawa and the area around it is absolutely breathtaking. The turquoise waters, humongous rock formations and expanse of the sea just draws you in. I could have stood up there forever – so peaceful.
I also knew I HAD to venture up to Manzamo Point before I left too because I’ve seen so many beautiful images of this place. And it is even more beautiful in person as it is in the photos. Beautiful water and the amazing elephant trunk of rock. This one wasn’t quite as peaceful with the 100 other tourists there, but still amazing.
I had a photo shoot scheduled for Fukushen Gardens in Naha and it’s a place I wanted to visit for some time anyway. I love that in the middle of a city there is park that just completely drowns out any city noise and is simply beautiful. So many great structures surrounded by waterfall and beautiful greenery.
I can’t wait to explore even more for the next 2 months before we leave this amazing place!
Next go visit where Ashley Callen lives and her beautiful photos!
