The Fourth

Matt and I had a mellow 4th of July this year.  It may not have involved Jet-ski's as in previous years, but it was fun nonetheless.  First of all, we got to be a little lazy and sleep in on our day off, which is always great.  We ended up at the scuba shop, where Matt purchased a new regulator (fancy dive equipment) that he'd been saving for since his birthday.  I also have some new gear of my own that I've yet to use, so we headed for the Seawall for a nice, easy dive to test it all out.  The day was HOT and gorgeous - it was the perfect 4th of July weather:) 

After our dive, we headed to a little nearby restaurant that we have been wanting to try out, called Ishigaki Kitchen.  They are sort of a bakery/burger joint that specializes in both bread & Ishigaki Beef, making both their burgers and buns REALLY GOOD!  Matt and I had two different burgers, and agreed that the sauce made them taste almost sweet (in a good way).  It is a small place with a small menu, but the food was delicious - Okinawa officially has some of the best burgers ever:) 

Right before our dive at the Seawall - the tide was very low, so we had to walk out across that reef you can see behind us.

After dinner, we headed to Toguchi Beach to take a walk.  The beach was super quiet with only a few other people on it, and we got there right in time for a really beautiful sunset.  Beside stopping at Starbucks on our way home for some dessert, that was pretty much our whole 4th of July this year - I told you it was mellow;)  Honestly, it was fun and relaxing all at the same time, and the perfect way to celebrate Independence Day.  Happy Birthday America!!
