It’s the dog days of summer here in Okinawa which means 90 degree temperatures with a “real feel” of 110, plus humidity constantly creeping past 90%, and a UV index of 11 (aka extreme) are the norm. Needless to say, being outside is not only unpleasant, but downright not an option (at least in my opinion). With that being said, Ben and I have found a haven in our base’s pool. It’s got bathrooms, zero sand, and plenty of shade. Although it’s easily the lamest place to go when we’ve got plenty of stunning beaches and cultural sites at our fingertips, it’s the only location where I can successfully convince myself to be outside for more than 15 minutes. Plus, it’s down the street from our house which is also a huge “win” considering the traffic is Okinawa consistently makes a 15 minute drive into a 30 minute one.
We're Kara and Ben, a Marine Corps family currently stationed in Okinawa, Japan. Enjoy our adventures, travels, photos, thoughts, and life together halfway around the world!
