Island Thursday

Hello from Pension Uni, one of my favorite places to lodge!

This morning, when my alarm went off at 4:05, I had one thought. "........................" 

Clearly, I'm quite eloquent at 4:05. 

I packed everything the night before, so it wasn't too much trouble to get out the door at 4:45. 

Although it was freezing, I decided to walk the 2.5 miles to the ferry terminal. I put some good music on, and set off across town. 

The morning was not only freezing, but cloudy. I really hoped I'd be able to get a spot on the ferry!

About 1.5 miles into my walk, I passed my favorite building. 
Isn't it cheery! They start serving food at 6:30, but I was long gone by then.

And boat parking...

I made it to the ferry terminal and stopped at the Meguriai branch for a cup of coffee. It looked so pretty under a light!
Today's ferry had plenty of room for everyone! Oh, happy me! And, I ran into one of my coworkers. It was her first visit to Rebun. 

The first half of the trip was pretty rough, so I just tried to take a nap. I like listening to podcasts on ferry trips when I can't read, so I did that, too. 

At school today, I got to visit all the classes, which I enjoyed. I wish I could talk more about school! We had fun with trivia, clues, and tongue twisters. I have a really hard time smoothly saying, "I wish to wash my Irish wristwatch."

Checked into Pension Uni this evening and was excited to get my beloved room with a bay window that looks toward the sea. 

Since I finished work, I've just been relaxing, watching sumo on TV, reading, and writing. It's nice to be in my cute room with the heat blasting. 

A little later, I'll meet some teachers for dinner, but I'm going to go ahead and post this blog now!

Oh to be able to stay in that lovely room--what a treat! I love the way you took your selfie in a mirror and framed it with a curtain. You look adorable.
