The Wind is Howling!

The Surf from Murphy's Balcony on Christmas Day

Christmas Eve was so warm and beautiful on Okinawa, and Christmas Day was crappy!  Overnight it had gotten much cooler and windier, and by the time we gathered at Murphy's yesterday the waves were crashing in.  A few surfers were splashing around on Christmas morning, but by early afternoon they had packed it in.

The Water's Edge at Araha Beach Today
Araha Beach, Okinawa:   December 26, 2010
Today it is still bleak.  After a brief visit to the gym at Camp Foster, I walked to the beach by my apartment, in my workout shorts, and snapped a couple of pictures.  Welcome to my world!
