Green leaves and blue sea

060425greenleaves01_1Today I went to meet my friend living in Rendaiji town in Shimoda.

When I passed by my car near a small park in this town, the green leaves were shining under the sun.

In Shimoda the spring had already come, so a lot of trees in the city and the mountains have green leaves.

In this park there were an old man and children playing together.

After that, I went to Shirahama beach……

A few days ago our guest came from Tokyo said,

" I have been to Okinawa, but I prefer Shimoda than Okinawa. There are beautiful mountains along the sea. Excellent and gorgeous !! "

In Shimoda a time goes very slowly and peacefully.
