A Taste Of Okinawa Part Two

Posted on Tuesday May 19, 2009 at 11:18am in ,

We woke up early to go meet Sawako near her home. We met her half way at a Starbucks and then we drove together towards the aquarium. Okinawa has a pretty famous aquarium.

On the way.

We stopped to eat lunch before we got there (the drive is about 2 hours) at a curry place that Sawako likes and eats at often.

Good food, good view.

And then to a coffee / tea house that she also wanted to show us:

We eventually made it to Aquarium Park…

Ok, let’s start inside:

Curvy shaped tank.

Tropical fish.

A scuba diver is cleaning the glass on the tank as a whale shark swims behind.

Both cleaners. This tank was the main attraction.

Feeding time. See the whale shark eating? They are like vacuums.

From the aquarium we walked to a nearby beach called Emerald Beach. I bought a swimsuit and towel so I could swim.
