On Monday I went to the parks around 99 Islands. I went to both Hananomori and Tenkaiho.
|The view from the top of 99 Islands... it's incredible!|
|This field was huge!|
|This picture is just for my friend, Mary... enjoy!|
Then I headed to Nimitz Park which is right across the street from the base. I just love the lanterns and cherry blossoms!
On Tuesday I went to Saiki Park and walked under the bridge.
|A view from the bridge.|
|The walking trail was amazing!|
|Once again, my favorites... lanterns and blossoms!|
|I thought this little boy feeding the peacock was too cute!|
|This lady was imitating the flamingos and all of her friends were laughing.|
Finally, on Thursday, I took my first trip to Huis Ten Bosch. It is a Dutch theme park in the middle of Sasebo, complete with tulips, windmills, and wooden shoes. All the tulip pictures are for you, Mom (tulips are our absolute favorite), I wish you could have been here to see them with me!
|I loved the white tulips mixed with the colorful flowers.|
|Me and Maud|
|These were my favorite... amazing colors!|
|A field of tulips, it was breath-taking!|
|Just for you, Mom and Dad!|
|This park was amazing because of the reflection of the cherry blossoms on the water.|
|The walking path lined with cherry blossoms and lanterns. It was beautiful to see at night!|
