|Preparing to board the Coral Queen|
Last week, Memorial Day Weekend, three friends (Nefredia Covington, Kelly Vought, and Daniel Murphy) and myself took the ferry north of Okinawa to Yoron Island where we spent the better part of four days and weathered a really good typhoon. I blogged about those adventures as they occurred at www.pa-rocks-ramble.blogspot.com and now I am finally following up with photos on this blog. Enjoy the photos, and if you want more specifics about the trip, stop over at The Ramble and see what I had to say there.
The ferry is actually about the size of a small cruise ship, and although Yoron is the first stop north of Okinawa, the ferry runs to several other islands and goes almost as far as mainland Japan. I definitely want to ride it further and do more exploring in "the Japans" next time.
