Visiting an old friend of Dougs in Naha city, where they treat us all like long lost family. I must admit though, the heat is a bit overwhelming right now.
Planning on picking up food today and assembling the kayaks, for a tentative departure to Kerama islands tomorrow. Weather permitting.
Shiro is in high spirits and keen to set out. Doug is stressing caution and vigilance in our weather attention, there have been 12 typhoons in japan this year, compared to their usual 4. And the water is quite active, waves of 9-10 feet with little wind.
