We decided to spend this evening walking around Chatan Cho, a fun section of town where lots of Americans live right off the base. We started with a sunset ride on the ferris wheel. Nice view of the East China Sea!
From there, we had dinner. Sadly our first choice restaurant which advertises plates of gooey cheese oozing out of meatloaf and mashed potatoes seemed to have gone out of business and so we settled on another place that was good, but nothing to write home about.
Walking around the strip, we stumbled upon a pirate ship.
After more walking around and enjoying the balmy weather, we heard a commotion in some trees and looked up to see a pair of bats mating. Seriously creepy! For a special treat, click on the photo to enlarge. You'll see the beady little eyes of one bat staring out at us!
Two little Okinawan boys walking nearby were equally interested and disturbed by the sight as we were!
Feeling grossed out by the bats, we ended our night at the Niche Martini Bar. Sean ordered the dirty martini, which he claimed was pure vodka and as for me, I ordered the bloody mary martini in honor of our new furry friends.
