I have really enjoyed Marine Day Week!!!
Did you know that Marine Day was moved to the third Monday in July in 2003?
And, did you know that it was created in 1941?
And, did you know it commemorated Emperor Meiji’s 1876 voyage in the Meiji-Maru?
Did you know the Meiji Maru was built in 1874 in Scotland for Japan?
And, did you know Emperor Meiji travelled around Tohoku Region, and Aomori and to
Hakodate and then back to Yokohama?
And, did you know he arrived back in Yokohama on July 20?
Did you know the ocean is my favorite place?
Did you know I love boogie boarding?
Have a good one!
