Waiting Our Turn

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 24 September 2015 in Cityscape & Urban.

Only a certain number of people may be on the island at a time and then in a relatively small area. So, we had to wait for other groups to depart. In typical Japanese fashion, the process runs very smoothly.

The gap between this very beautiful and new boat and the left island is striking.

I like having the ship near the island to help remind us of the island's size. A fine picture. The wait to visit there was probably well worth the time.

My Imagination runs as I look at this scene.....I wonder what that smaller (?) vessel is way over to the left? This is a very compelling series, Steve !
