When I went to Shimoda I went to Shimoda park to check the blooming of cherry trees.
This year it has been cold in these days, so Sakura trees started to bloom slowly.
But I was able to see some trees have already bloomed in this park.
There are a lot of cherry trees on the river side in Shimoda downtown, but I don’t know if I can go there soon because we will be busy this week.
2 years ago it was a 20th anniversary for our Pension Sakuray, and then we started to present our guest postcard as a gift.
Our guests were pleased with these postcards and everyone praised these photos which I took in Shirahama.
So last year we conteniued to do it after we changed some of them.
And this year it became 22nd anniversary…..
Today it was sunny and very warm here in Shirahama.
At around 3:00 PM I went to the beach with my son Yuuki before picking up my daughter who came back from the school.
My son and I went to the rock behind Shirahama shrine.
There is a red gate "Torii" of shrine on a big rock.
We were going to Shirahama Chuou beach walking on the rock……
In this late afternoon I got a telephone calling from my daughter, Hikari.
And she asked me to pick her up on the way to home, so I went out by my car.
Before picking my daughter up I went to beach to take photos.
Today it was sunny but we had a little strong west wind, and they had a low tide at that time…..
2 days ago we had a heavy rain and a strong wind in that night.
It was almost typhoon, so a table for patio outside was broken by the wind.
"Ah, we have to buy new one before summer….."
By the way it was sunny today and we were able to see a beautiful scenery.
But we were not see Izu Oshima island today because thhe air was not clear.
It was rainy early in this morning but the weather has been changed.
Yes, we got a sunshine after one week here in Shirahama.
After my daughter finished a school I went to the beach with her and my son.
They were very happy on the beach……
As I had to go for shopping I went to the beach after that.
I took this picture at the back of Shirahama shrine in Shirahama Ohama beach.
There is a red gate called "Torii" in Japanese on the rock and we can see Izu Oshima island over there.
Shirahama shrine is located on north side of Shirahama beach, I am showing the another picture taken at the middle of this beach. …..
Today it was cloudy in the morning and sunny in the afternoon.
After my wife came back from Shimoda I went to the beach with my son Yuuki.
In Shirahama there are 2 beaches called "Ohama" and "Chuou".
We can get to Chuou beach from Ohama beach by walking along the beachside, and it takes about 20 or 25 minutes.
But we took a car today as we didn’t have enough time…..
Today I could see a blue sea after several days.
It had been cloudy for last one week here in Shirahama.
This morning it was rainy but the weather had been changed after 2:00 PM.
I took this photo after coming back from shopping in Shimoda downtown with my son, but actually I took some more photos before I went to Shimoda……
