Sunabe Village and Chibana Castle

I teamed up with a friend of mine to hit a few geocaches today. We started the day by visiting a couple that I have already found. Since he's even newer at this than I am, he was happy to visit any caches that we could.

Our first stop was one of my own caches entitled, "Eat Your Vegetables." It's located at a farmers market, adjacent to a park that is allegedly haunted. My friend found it pretty easily.

We next headed to Chibana Castle. It was much easier to reach the top of the climb today than it was during my previous visit (immediately following a heavy rain).

After that, we were off to Sunabe Village. We hit a few caches on the beaches, and enjoyed the cooler weather. Thankfully, it was low tide, since one of the caches would have involved a swim during higher tides.

Castles, Jungles, Oceans... Heavy sigh, it must be so cool to be able to visit such areas. Granted I know you only have so many caches to find but to get to experience that part of the world must have it's good moments.

Will the states compare when you finally do get back?

That's a great question, HHH. In terms of sight-seeing, there are plenty of impressive locations in the states. You know as well as I do, however, that they're a little spread out.

There are indeed many things about this location that I will miss when I leave, but going "home" will more than make up for it.

It's always more fin to hit the road with a fellow cacher, no? It's also fun when people are searching for your caches and you are there. If they don't find, you keep laughing!

As for stateside -- like you said, going home would be a great part. Plus, you'll have already cleaned up the caches on the island!
