  11. こんにちは、どこも景色がいいですね。鉄砲ユリが暑い沖縄に咲くことに驚きましたが、来間島とか池間島への橋が出来てることにも、びっくりしました。宮古島のホテルの庭に見えるのはゴルフ場ですか。30年前は東急リゾートしかなくて、3泊したことがありますが、あそこにはパターゴルフしかないから、きっと新しくできたホテルでしょうね。美しい海の景色は昔も今も変わりませんが、30年前の私の知識はまるで古くて、今では使い物にならないことを悟りました(笑)

       こんばんは。前回は石垣島にステイしましたので、今回は急ぎ足で13島巡りをしました。
       鉄砲百合は東京近辺ですと7月に咲きますが、ここではもう咲いていました。
       ホテルの庭は宮古島東急ホテルです。夕方ついて翌朝出発しましたのでゴルフ場のことは確認しませんでした。
       なにしろ強行軍で疲れました。

  22. 前ポストに引き続き、美しい海と浜を楽しませていただきました。淡い色から濃い色までブルーは大好きな色です。島まで橋で渡れるのですね。規模は違うようですが、瀬戸内海の明石海峡大橋や瀬戸大橋を思いだしました。
