So, in their last few days we needed to show Sheron and Sharon some fun, feed them some good food, and have them relax. Our first stop was Forest Adventure. I've been once before, but it was everyone else's first time. Sharon used to rock climb, but all four of us aren't overly fond of heights. After a brief review by a staff member we were free to start zipping.
Sheron and Sharon coming in for their first landings.
Besides forcing yourself off of the platform the landing is the hardest part. You've got to be facing forward or you'll really bite the mulch.
Chris was good at this right away and would perform while zipping. I just focused on nailing the landing - I was successful about half the time.
Along with the zip lines they have other rope bridges and obstacles to get across. Here's Chris on the rings:
The obstacle course was fun and we could all be on it at once.
The view from the top of the obstacle course was beautiful.
Here are some video clips of all of us as we zip:
Here we are at the finish with some sweet glasses I found along the way.
We relaxed that afternoon and then headed for a seafood dinner at Sam's -By-The-Sea.
At Sam's you've got to start with the drinks in the cool glasses.
They had a special appetizer for autumn and it was may be the best thing I've ever eaten.
They had a little won ton wrapper, avocado, shrimp, cheese, and a sweet chili sauce on the side. I don't know what they seasoned it with, but it was heaven!
The last time we came here I thought the food was good, but I swear it was even better this time. Sharon and Sheron ordered lobster so they had to bib up.
Sharon is ready to dig in:
We were all fat and happy when we left Sam's.
The next morning I took the ladies to Cocok's for some TLC. Cocok's is a nail salon that really treats you right. You get your usual foot treatment as well as a nice, long calf massage. Here we are relaxing:
The entire trip whenever we'd overindulge Sharon would say I feel like a "puffa puffa puffer fish". So, we went into Cocok's armed with this picture:
And Sharon came out with this:
Pretty cute, huh? You should have seen the look on the nail artist's face when we first showed her the picture. It was classic.
Sheron wanted a shisa dog, but her artist either didn't understand as much English or wasn't as willing to experiment with her art. So, Sheron picked a store design:
It's not what she came in for, but it sure is pretty.
I wasn't sure what I wanted, but really loved what I came home with:
Afterwards, Sharon said she was hooked and will do it again. While Sheron liked the results, she has super ticklish feet so probably won't be getting another pedicure.
Their final lunch out was at CoCo's Curry. This is another place that would be easy to get addicted to. You choose the curry you want, the spice level you want, and then select your add-ins (cheese, garlic chips, eggplant, etc.).
Like mother, like son on this one. Both Sheron and Chris ordered the level 5, sweated a little, and loved every bite.
I went for the level 1 and added eggplant. I love the eggplant here in Okinawa.
Overall, I think Sheron and Sharon had a fun and delicious trip. They want to come back and they're definitely more than welcome because they were some laid-back, easy guests!
