So, we haven't been able to go and do anything exciting lately. I am pouring over my files of pictures to try and find something of interest to post.
These pictures are of Katsuren castle; so neat! The boys(Dana included)loved exploring the ruins and climbing the walls (yes, I was having a heart attack!) to see the view of the ocean and city below. Breathtaking.
Here is your history lesson of the day. I think what is most interesting to me from this story is that the lord of this castle attacked Shuri Castle. You can see pictures of Shuri Castle (jo-means castle in Japanese, I think) in an earlier post. Shuri Castle has quite the fortress around it, attacking it was a bold attempt. To read the story, click on the picture so it enlarges.
