In the mood for a long walk

My 10km walk... covered quite an impressive area eh...

Now that everything is setup and comfy for staying on board Calliste at Ginowan Marina, I feel like in the mood to take a looonnnngggggg walk and explore the area. This sort of walk needs a little planning. A general direction or attraction not too far away…  a 8km walk with stops here and there..

Decided that I should set out really early.. like just after 1st light, when its nice and cool. … and yes, I have my mind set on a Mac breakfast along the way. … and lucky shot for me, catching pic of a bird perched on the branch. Turned out well.

Counter at Macd's... its in Jap :) ask for the English menu..

This Macds is really quite posh and nice. What d’ya think?

Everything on the board is Japanese … of course… ask for the English menu… or just point and it cant really go wrong…

And my Mega Muffin! Double patties, cheese, bacon… it was really good. I am going to be back for more, thats for sure!

Served just like any Macd's that I been to

I think I qualify for being a Macd fan… for sure … maybe they should pay me for this juicy Mega Muffin pic on my blog… 🙂 … drool people, drool!

… hee hee hee…. I am being evil here… and I am not getting fat myself, for some reason my cholesterol is not bad either 🙂 … Maybe there is a reason for this long walks afterall.

My MEGA Muffin! It was really good too.

Next stop, Iso garden. .. eh… not as breathtaking as I had hoped when I set out… <yawn…>

…but at least I got a good view of the bay… and good workout climbing the hill.

Keeping an eye out for pretty flowers, as I always like taking pictures of them. Its been my long time hobby since my 1st SLR.

Altho, the flowers planted here in Okinawa were really not too special … seen before too many times, elsewhere.

Just about the time I need a drink… at Lawson’s… and then I realized I didn’t bring out my purse… so I am really eating away my pocketful of coins… Its easy to collect US$10 worth of coins in Japan and so it was easy for me to survive on change… but no BlueSeal ice-cream and crepe… and after the generic brand ice-cream and drink, I dun have enuf to take the bus back.  … sigh….

So I walked more than 10 km today, by me estimate… I was a sorry state when I got back to Calliste..
