Okuma Beach Resort

Mark and I took a little stay-cation to Okuma. It was a last minute decision, but that's what happens when cabins and resorts fill up really quickly around here! I woke up one morning and saw a Kadena FSS announcement that the resort had opened up another "Turtle Nest" cabin and they were now taking reservations. I called an hour after it was posted... all holidays were already booked! Mark was able to get the quick "go-ahead" for the last weekend in November. Done & done!

I didn't do a very good job taking pictures so we can thank the KadenaFSS for this and all photos of the inside of the cabins.
We decided to head up despite the forecast for rain. We had Thursday-Sunday to enjoy everything because Mark was leaving for South Korea for work and we weren't sure if I was going to make it onto a Space-A flight.

We were so happy with what we saw when we made it to the cabin. It's BEAUTIFUL!! It was way too big for the two of us, but we weren't complaining. It has 2 bedrooms, a loft upstairs with numerous futons, and a couch downstairs. There's also a small kitchen with everything you need, except a stove. However, don't worry, there's a really nice grill outside!





Outside, there's also a fire pit dug in the sand. We didn't take advantage of it, but we will be sure to do so next time. There is the bench on the left and a breakfast table and chairs on the other side. The beach is literally right there.

Okay, from here on are all my pictures. Thanks, KadenaFFS for the help!

I've been dying to try paddle boarding since my sister told me how much fun it was. It was awesome that we didn't have to skip it even though it was cold and rainy. Thank goodness for wetsuits! Turns out, paddle boarding is a lot harder than we expected. We had a really good time trying, but we fell in the water... a lot!

There are a lot of water sports offered and it's all very cheap to rent everything. It only cost us $8 for 2 boards and 2 wetsuits. I know that we stayed during "off-season" so prices might change if you go during peak season.




The majority of our time was spent Geocaching. We don't get that far north very often so we wanted to take advantage of it! Along the way, we went exploring... by that I mean, we got lost and made the most of it.

Everyone else was doing it, too. Ha!
Being a boy...
We played some putt-putt late at night.
Beautiful views!! That's Okuma Resort over there on the right. The little island nugget, island thingy would be perfect for a cache. Hmm...

We took our rain jackets, GPS, and lunch with us one day. It worked out really well and we got to see a lot of the island. I downloaded a new app that lets me take panoramic photos during this trip. It definitely paid off! I wish I could make these pictures just a little bigger so that you really got the full effect. I took them both from geocaches that we found.



We made it to the northern most tip of the island, too! It was awesome. The water was beautiful and the waves were crashing against the rocks. It was like something you only see on TV.





These last pictures are just snapshots throughout the rest of our trip/geocaching.
