During Labor Day weekend we took a ferry out to the Keramas and explored Akajima. It was an incredible trip. I put my phone in airplane mood and relaxed. The snorkeling was amazing, the vibe of the island was local, and so laid back. I have a few plein air works from the trip that I need to share too.

This was a beach we visited on our last day. It was a 25 minute walk from our hotel and I carried our paddle board the whole way. Being a small island we asked where there was a pretty beach and we were pointed “that way”. We climbed a hill until we saw a small wooden sign that said “ビーチ”. We followed the small overgrown path which led to this.

We sunbathed, paddle boarded, and giant hermit crabs stole our kids snacks.

This is piece is watercolor with gel pen. The gel pens take me back to middle school.
