The New King and Queen

Sometimes the best days are those that start out mundane and take a serendipitous turn. 

Because of my husband's crazy work schedule lately, we've been really lazy on the on the weekends. The no adventuring, no sightseeing, no pants kind of lazy.  But thanks to a series of fortunate events we managed to get out and take in a bit of culture.
   The Shirijo Castle Festival Procession reenacts the King and Queen's procession to their castle, down Kokusai Street (Okinawa's Vegas strip) to Shurijo Castle. Period costumes, makeup and dance make it unforgettable.  It was amazing.
