060226repair001_1"Please paint a roof this time."

We were going to do only it at the first stage.

But kind painter said, "If you would like to do it, of course we can do it. But you will have to paint again about 3 years later."

Sakuraya’s building is 19 years old, so the roof is too old to paint. And he said also,

"As it necessary a lot of money to set the preparation to paint, you had better change all of the roof now at all."

Besides, as there are many points of leak of wall, we have to change all of walls this time.

Shirahama beach in Shimoda

060222sunrise001_1Here is a question.

When did I take this picture in the morning or afternoon ?

The answer is "Morning".

The western side of Izu, "Nishi Izu" is very famous for its sunset.

But Shirahama beach is on the eastern side of Izu peninsula, so we can’t take a picture of sunset on the sea.

When I wake up in the early morning I sometimes take its picture. Especially we can take picutures of the beautiful sunrise from the horizon in the winter.

Would you like to see it?
