I'm Trying to Think of a Fun Title for This Blog Post, But I Got Nothin'

Tuesday night we took my parents to Jack's Place, which is the teppanyaki restaurant that's only a couple blocks from our house. When my parents were here it was a place called Skoshi Koom and they broadcast The Voice of America from there. But now it's a restaurant where you get dinner and a show :)


And here's me and Ree, flashing the obligatory peace sign...


And Mom and Dad doing the same. Lee clicked the camera right *after* the chef lit something on fire on the grill. Sometimes when you go, they'll make a pyramid of sliced onions, pour alcohol in the middle, and light it on fire so it looks like a volcano :)


We went to Cape Zampa on Tuesday but it poured down rain right after we got there, so we went back on Thursday when the weather was nicer. We still got sprinkled on a bit, but not too bad. Got some great photos with beautiful colors though.


I still can't believe how vibrant the colors are here...the ocean looks just like SU's color Pacific Point even though this is the East China Sea, not the Pacific, hehe!


Different angle on the lighthouse...


And yet another angle on it. The lighthouse really isn't all that tall but it still looks good in pictures :) When we go back to North Carolina, we'll have to make a trip to the Outer Banks and photograph some of the lighthouses out there; we never did that when we lived there before.


Dad got tired of arguing with us whether the name of this place is Bolo Point or Cape Zampa so he asked someone...Cape Zampa is the Japanese name, and Bolo Point is the American name and it's still used on dive maps. Mystery solved.
