The next morning we noticed large cumulus clouds brewing in the sky. We set out for the nearby, uninhabited island called Hanmya. As we explored the unusual sand beach that extends up the islet’s steep slope, a nasty squall brewed up to the west and attacked the island with strong winds and rain. After 30 minutes of raging weather it cleared and we continued on our way. Passing to the east of Ukejima we spotted some dolphins playing in the current.
