K and I have been doing a lot of sailing this summer, that's what, and blogging about it on Sweet-Bluesette. This weekend, rain or no (hey if we were afraid of getting wet, we wouldn't go sailing at all), we're staying at a resort up at the lake with a friend from Saitama Prefecture and sailing for two days. I promise a post here about that as well as on Sweet-Bluesette.
On August 26th we visited DisneySea, which is a one of a kind park next to Tokyo Disneyland. It is themed on ports of the world and designed to appeal to an older age group. It sure appeals to us. I'll post about that SOON.
On September 13th we went to an airshow at Hyakuri Air Base and watched the JASDF aerobatic team "Blue Impulse" perform again. I'll post briefly on that as well.
In other news....
On Maui, my 6 year old granddaughter Bailey is kickin' goals in soccer games. Six of them in the last two games! At this rate, the Kashima Antlers will want to sign her up. (Her dad played soccer for Hawaii Pacific University - you don't suppose she has a coaching advantage, do you?).
And on the mainland US my second daughter, Laura, graduated (again) this summer, this time with a master's degree in computer engineering and an MBA from Washington University in St. Louis. Woo hoo. All that while working full time for an aerospace company.
