Miss Veedol Memorial

sign outside the beach

I think it is pretty safe to say that Miss Veedol is the mascot for Misawa. You can learn more about her here.
Miss Veedol was the first successful trans-pacific flight (after 3 other attempts with other planes). On October 4th, 1931 after a flight lasting 41 hours and 10 minutes and flying for 7,847km, Miss Veedol landed in Salt Lake City, Utah.

At Miss Veedol Memorial , there is a replica of the aircraft. There are signs for Miss Veedol Memorial  in Misawa (The White Signs with Miss Veedol on them). I will update with directions soon.

The first time I found a shell in tact !

There are a lot of dandelions here!
The dandelions choke out these beautiful flowers
