Coco’s, Torii Station, Zanpa Beach (2 shopping days!)

Happy Saturday!  Only 2 shopping days left all…hope you’re not procrastinating on buying my gifts! 😉

Today was another day of exploration.  We decided to go eat at a highly talked about place…Coco’s Curry.  I must say, yum!  It was good, filling, and very resaonably priced.  After we were done eating, exploration was on the docket…let’s drive and see where it leads.  (Cell phones with GPS mapping all charged just in case and 1/2 tank of gas…good to go.)

I downloaded a new photo editor…just playing around.

The heat levels for curry…baby, mild, and 1-10.  Let’s just say HB had a level 5 and was a tad red.  My #1 was plenty spicy for me!  (Check out the faces and sweat on those box heads…lol)


Coco’s Curry…Beef Steak w/rice.  The ginger they had as a topping was delicious!

Statue at Zanpa…K is “reading” the sign although it looks like he is saying a prayer.



It was a great day of exploring the island!

Tomorrow I buckle down and get my bake on for Christmas goodies.  Candy Cane cookies were requested and some fudge, possibly, if I am feeling frisky.  😉

Do you like to just explore a new area?  Plan it or on the fly?

  1. I’ve linked your blog to Torii Station’s Facebook page, which currently has over 1000 viewers a week. If you like both coffee and chocolate go to San A (there’s one near Torii’s main gate) and get some Key Mocha coffee.
