Imagine an Island Without.....

Imagine an island without



Convenience stores




Golf courses

High heel shoes

Internet service








Quacks (same as above and some doctors, too)







X, Y and Z are missing.  I bet the wife's dog ate them.

Anyway,  just imagine an island without all those trimmings.

Okinawa, Japan has about 100 islands like that and I want to go see them all.

Could you live on an island without all that stuff ?

The picture is nice but you lost me at no jellybeans. ;)

Average Traveler,
See, it was early in the morning. Coffee hadn't kicked-in yet. Trying to come up with an alphabetical list, jellybeans popped into my head when I got to the letter "J". Hope I didn't offend any jellybean growers, er nuthin. Then, I went and got the dictionary. That made the rest easy, until I got to the part where the dog ate the last few pages !

I can do without the politicians!

RyukyuMike said...

But, then you'd have nobody to give your tax money to !

Easy Hiker said...

Ah, to have an island to escape to now and again.

Beautiful, I love the vivid colors (^_^)

RyukyuMike said...

Easy Hiker, That's the plan, every chance I get, go escape to a new one.

Muza-chan, I bet there are a few up in the part of Japan you visit. Aren't you into island-hopping ?
It's fun !

No xemes, yaks or zebras either Mike?
Wow, that is extreme!

RyukyuMike said...

"No xemes, yaks or zebras" LOL, I don't really need to buy a new dictionary as long as I have you around. Thanks. I've heard of 2 outta the 3 but, what's an xeme ?

Denise said...

No I couldn't (unless I had to).

How could I read your post everyday Mike if I didn't have some of those things? :0

Let's go drive'n in the rain again man!!!

Ryukyu Ru.

Don't think I could on it but I could sure spend some time on an island like that. Nice post.

Sophie said...

Now, see, I like opera. And keyboards (both on the computer and the piano). And high heels and even a bit of luxury. Nonetheless, a few days without any of it on a Ryukyu Island would be fab.

ps I was going to suggest no xenon gas, the little xemes are kinda cute.

What a beautiful photo! But to answer your question -- I don't think I could live without some of those things, but I'd like to try it out for a while.

RyukyuMike said...

Let's rent a boat next time.

RyukyuMike said...

Denise, Aw, sure you could.
Leigh, Thanks. I bet you'd enjoy it. At least for a little while.
Sophie, Now that I think of it, those islands are luxuries !

A few days...YEP...then I have to get back to my boyfriend...Lenova and he need electricity and an Internet connection :)

Beautiful shot.

RyukyuMike said...

The electricity is one thing, I think we all need these days. Not to worry, before long we'll all have some solar-powered gadgets or old fashioned hand cranks to fire our gear up.

RyukyuMike said...

Sure you could. Try it sometime just for a few days!
