So we go for a walk. The weather is bright and sunny and off we go to explore. The little river is full of fish, which we watch, and on the shore we see Grey Tailed Tattlers. We see kingfishers diving for little, baby fish so they can eat them.
The reservoir is the stage for Comorants, Egrets, Ospreys, Eurasian Coots and loads of turtles.
James nearly catches a big turtle and does catch a little turtle.
We go back down the river and O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!’ We see a Ryukyu Green Pigeon. This is a bird unique to the island and so if you want to see it you have to come here. You follow the logic?
We walk past the tombs to the beach.
We then go to a shrine place and boing birthday boy Ben’s bell.
We find some vegetation that behaves like nearly everyone we meet – it shrinks away when you touch it.
“I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in. ~John Muir, 1913”
