焼肉 barbecue. I enjoyed the squid and vegetables. You can see a squid cooking in the bottom right hand corner of the grill.
We spent the night at the Toyoka Inn in Oita. The rooms are small but adequate and I enjoy the included Japanese complementary breakfast served in the morning.
This time they had a different miso soup. It was full of noodles and vegetables.
Friday we checked the Oita Elders apartment. It was great! We took the opportunity to treated them to lunch and guess where they chose to go?
A all you can eat in an hour and half Stamina yakuniku 焼肉 barbecue. I had squid and vegetables twice in two days.
After lunch Elder Koberstein and I went shopping for boards that could be used as bulletin boards in their apartment. We had seen Styrofoam looking boards used in the Kumamoto Elders apartment and were determined to get some to use in Oita. NAFCO was the store but it was a long drive/walk from the apartment. We had to tie them on top of the car and to our amazement it actually worked. These boards look like Styrofoam but are used to insulate an do not seem as brittle.
After the work was completed in Oita we decided to drive to the Oita Sekizaki Ocean and Astronomical Observatory Hall. What a wonderful surprise when we got there to see all the big Koinobori flying over the parking lot.
They were the largest Koinobori I have seen up close. A beautiful sight to see.
Scripture of the Week
But Alma said unto him: Thou hast had signs enough; will ye tempt your God? Will ye say, Show unto me a sign, when ye have the testimony of all these thy brethren, and also all the holy prophets? The scriptures are laid before thee, yea, and all things denote there is a God; yea, and all that are upon the face of it, yea, and its motion, yea, and also all the planets which move in their regular form do witness that there is a Supreme Creator.
