umi no hi

gah! a/c and little sun makes goya dry and wilty, while we wait for them to finish painting our building. I put goya outside today, hoping it gets some sun & revives😿🙏  #japan #goya So, goya is on its last leg. With the combination of a/c and little sun, the leaves seem to have dried up..boo! Since the building facelift guys have the day off today, I'm leaving it outside in hopes that it'll revive...

DH000023 Today is Umi no Hi (literally Ocean Day). I've written about this holiday before here. This photo was taken back in 2003 (pre-blog) on a trip to Okinawa. I think this was near Manzamo. On this particular trip we met up with my long-lost relatives which I wrote a little about here.

We're literally melting over here but I hope you have a great week!

At first I read "ume no hi" and was surprised that Japan celebrated the "ume". LOL.

I hope the goya recuperates although it really does look lik it's suffering - poverina! it's boiling hot miserably unbearable temps here as well and is forecasted to be that way til who knows when.

Now I go to stick my head in the freezer....
