rest of day 1 @ okinawa



after the busena marine park,
we drove to the fruits land.
it's a place where one will find out what plants grow what fruits.
there are little footprints all over the place and little bb was puzzled.
when we told him that they are those of the fairies... he got scared.
and refused to go nearer to the fairies' tree house.

there is also a fairy cave which he was reluctant to go in.
it got a little better when he found out that there are things that glow in the dark....





we skipped the pineapple park (which is literally right next to the fruits land)
as we didn't think there will be much to see.

we then headed off to have lunch at a hundred year old traditional restaurant 
called ufuya.
somotu has been looking forward to dining at this place as he has read and saw pictures of this traditional house.... there are seats next to waterfalls and traditional japanese garden...
but it was a really popular place and so we didn't get the seats somotu wanted...

after lunch, little bb had fun running around the garden....


the next stop was the neo park.
it wasn't what we had expected...
we went on a sunday but the park was surprisingly quiet...
only a handful of people were there....
the place seems to be running down which got me a bit worried about the animals there...


we took the train ride around the park....
it stopped by different areas....  ostrich here...
love its big eyes...



would have love to ride in these swan boats...
but they were left unattended... and a few of them were worn out...
couldn't help but feel sad...

and then the llamas....
we have read enough about llamas and it was good to see them in person.

we left the park wondering what will happen to the park and the animals...
*frown*


that evening, i had the luxury of going for a spa!
it happened while little bb napped in the hotel room...
i couldn't have asked for more!

after dinner,
we went to a supermarket to shop for snacks (i am a junk food queen) and fruits..
here, they are checking out a kiwi...
