But it is rare we are able to bond with them, as most of our guests have their own plans of what they want to see on our island, and that is perfectly fine with us. We are just glad that they want to stay all the way down south at our little cottage!
Sara my youngest has become close friends with their daughters Honoka and Yuina. They have sent airmail letters to each other and while in Japan for one of our day visits they took us to a mall. So, our families now have become close and good friends.
This year we decided to take them around to see the Christmas lights display, as we did with them last year, and then to an area hike that even we, have not gone too?!
The next day we went to Ritidian Point, our northern most beach area that is right by the military base in Andersen. We rarely go here, mostly because the drive is far, about an hour, besides we have our family beach so it is just more of a convenience than anything else. Ha!
We made a quick stop to see the South Pacific Peace Memorial park. It was on the way down to the restaurant so we decided to just make a quick stop!
here. It was a very humbling experience, even the other visitors there were all being prayerful. I felt a sense of peace and calmness being there.
On to Old Town Chinese Restaurant for lunch, and enjoyed each others company! We hope The Nakamura family enjoyed their stay with us and the places we visited too?!
The Ritidian Wildlife Reserves is open weekdays and if you call ahead of time you can book a tour, the hike is an hour or so depending on the area. The Christmas lights displays, at Tumon were up since late November and are available for viewing until early January. Same for the miniature display at Agana Shopping Center and Governor's House Display. It is all free to the public and visitors too!
