Dear Friends,

We left Bellport Ashiya on April 30, and traveled with the GSSR Group through the Seto Nakai (Inland Sea) to Nagasaki.

We left our GSSR friends in Nagasaki and cruised to Hirado, Imari, Yobuko, Haggi and on June 14 began our trip back to Ashiya. We arrived at Bellport Ashiya, our Home Port in Japan, on June 24. On the way back we stopped at Ainoshima, Kasado wan, Kurahashi shima, Onomochi, Shiriashi shima , Takamatsu and Shodo shima.

We traveled almost 1000nm

We will fly home to Seattle on June 29, spend July and August at home, and return to Japan in September to continue exploring the seas and culture of this wonderful country.

At home, we look forward to spending time with our family and friends. We miss you!

Warmest Regards,

Don and Sharry

    Don and Sharry–

    We knew when we left you in Ashiya that great adventures would unfold and so they did. Your stories and pictures are marvelous, especially the splicing incident, which appears to be a followup to a Newport, Oregon beginning.

    Have a safe trip home; looking forward to catching up this summer. Tad and Joyce
