"On the way" from Shanghai, China to Keelung, Taiwan, we anchor for a few hours at Ishigaki-Shima, Japan.
From what we can see from the ship, Ishigaki is a lovely island.
Japan greeted us by sending out the Japan Coast Guard to say hello.
And we greeted Japan by flying her flag.
For more on our brief stop, see Theresa's blog post: We could see Japan from our back deck.
We're sending all our good wishes to Japan while sailing on to Keelung,
