After spending some time walking along the beach at Torii Station, we decided to be more adventurous by hopping in our car, driving further north (where we've never been before) and just seeing what we found! We ended up taking a beautiful drive through a ton of sugarcane fields on a road that paralleled the coast, and discovered a Japanese beach out in town called Zanpa Beach. It was a small, secluded beach that belonged to a resort, but anyone was able to use it. The sand at this beach was, in fact, sand, and the water temperature was warmer than the air! We went for a swim and then explored the surrounding cliffs for a little bit. The water and cliffs were stunning, and I hope they turned out on film as amazing as they looked in life!

After our day of beaches, we ended up back at American Village and went for some dinner at a Thai place called Sai Thai. The food was yummy and the view from high up was nice as well. And for dessert? Yogurtland! Yes, for all you Yogurtland-loving Californian's like me, we have them here as well! Everything is pretty much the same as back in the States except some of the flavors are different as well as the toppings. Ahh, I miss California, so it's nice to have some things that remind you of home!
Love and miss you all!
And, yes, those ARE Koala Yummies in my Yogurt in case you were wondering!
