I heard that they had snow in Aomori Pref. and somewhere else.
Yes, it was almost winter today, but I found some surfers in the sea.
Aren’t they cold?
I can’t belive it!
My daughter Hikari is in a spring holidays.
"Well, let’s go to the beach after cleaning up the guest room today!"
It was very warm and we didn’t have a wind here in Shirahama today.
When we got to the beach my children started to run on the sand without shoe. …..
After that we went to the beach to take pictures.
We had a strong storm here the day before yesterday, that’s why they had big waves in Shirahama.
When I was holding my camera I found a family who was staying in our Pension…….
This is a same kind of cherry tree which is in front of the entrance of Pension Sakuraya.
After blooming this tree already has a lof of cherry now. ….
So I went to Shirahama Ohama Beach with my son Yuuki.
When we arrived at the beach we got of the shoes and started to run to the waters soon.
Actually the water is too cold, but my son was very excited there…..
When we were going down the hill to Route 135 we found the blue sea after about 1 week.
In these days we had not be able to see the sea and the mountain clearly.
After parking our car at the parking lot near the beach we got into the beach soon.
When we got to the seaside the tide was at its lowest and there were rocks along the beach side…..
It’s called "Tsukushi" in Japanese (Horsetail in English).
I took this photo in Minami-Izu town yesterday.
We Japanese feel a spring with this horsetail.
Yes, spring has come in Izu peninsula.
I show you today’s Shirahama beach …….
As my wife wanted to go to Shimoda for shopping my son and I went together and we went to Minami Izu town to see the flowers.
In Shimogamo there is a big field of rape blossoms and when we got to this field my son started to run into the rape blossoms. ……
When I was working in my office my daughter, Hikari came to my ofiice and said,
"Come on, dad! Hurry up!"
Before that my children, Akari, Hikari and Yuuki were playing together in a dinning room downstairs.
And I heard that Hikari said to my son Yuuki,
"Are you sleepy, Yuuki?"
So I knew why my daughter called me and I went to the dinning room with my camera soon ….
It had been held on the second Saturday in every July until last year.
But the typhoon came to Shirahama directly last summer on second Saturday, so they had to change the date to August 26.
I don’t know that’s why, but the fireworks 2008 will take place on ……
