Welcome Chinese New Year with a Bang: That's My Plan


Today is New Year's Eve by the Chinese calendar.

So, when my camera shootin' buddies came by today my plan was to go find some fireworks to end the 
Year of the Rabbit and welcome the Year of the Dragon tonight at midnight.


Buy some party goodies and shoot a new photo of a dragon.

That was the plan.


It is a cold, wet, cloudy day in Okinawa.  All I wanted to do was buy some stuff and shoot something like, a gold dragon bottle of sake.  These are things that could be done indoors.


Don't ask me how this stuff happens.


We got sidetracked, somehow and found Cherry Blossoms way up in the mountains.


And, we found another WATERFALL !

This one is at a not to be identified location.  It will be a closely guarded secret.

That's mostly because I don't know the name of the place or where we were at the time.

Map It Okinawa Dude with the GPS and Google Map know-how will have all that information for you, shortly. 
See, it was his bright idea to show us this waterfall and I'm glad that he did.

Here I am wearing a contraption around my waist and popping pain pills from the last time I fell down a waterfall (SEE CHERRY BLOSSOMS AND WATERFALLS IN OKINAWA).

Crynoutloud, I didn't need to be climbing a waterfall with my camera.

But, this one was a real beauty.  So, I did.

Only this time I was careful not to slip and fall.  Got me some great shots to show you.  Later.

RyukyuRusty and Ryukyu Ryu, those guys went all the way to the top.  Not me baby.

Somebody had to slip and fall on their fanny.  It wasn't gonna be me.

One of them young guys did it this time.

And, I'm glad that he did !


PS:  As an afterthought, we found some noisemakers (gentle fireworks) to pop at our party tonight.

According to the plan, we'll welcome the Chinese Year of the Dragon with a BANG !
