Labor Day Withdrawals

Ever since Victor and I started dating, our Labor Day tradition was to spend it in New York City. I have written about it here, here, and here. It was our special thing, although if we're being honest, we went to NYC whenever we could, because we love that city. And lately, we've really been missing it. Okinawa is lacking in the cultural arts stuff and I've been craving a Broadway musical so bad lately! 

So, I was feeling a bit bummed at the beginning of this Labor Day weekend for the above reasons. But, we made a plan of things we were going to do for the four day weekend, and we had a nice relaxing weekend together on this beautiful island.

First we went and visited a friend of Victor's from the Naval Academy who was in port on her destroyer from mainland. Unfortunately, they couldn't leave base so we toured the ship and chilled on the beach with her for a little bit. I sat in the captain's chair and loved feeling like the boss ha.
 Then we had a late breakfast and then headed out to a little beach on a different island that we wanted to check out. We love this little beach now.

Then is was a bonus day off!! Yay! We headed up to the Marriott Resort and spent the day lounging at their pool facilities with our friend Sherry (whose husband is deployed boo). We had a great time. 

So, it wasn't New York City, but I guess it's a good runner up. Hope you had a great Labor Day as well!
