2011/11/26 “Ise ebi” Lobster fishing at Minami Izu town

111126fishing01Today my daughter had a game of ping pong at junior high school in Minami Izu town, so I took her with my son.

During her games, as we had 3 hours my son and I drove to southern part of Izu peninsula.

We saw the fisherman left for Ise ebi fishing from small fisherman's port.

They put the lobster net in the sea from now and will  pull up them at around 4 or 5 AM tomorrow.

The period of lobster fishing is between September and May in Izu peninsula.

2011/11/24 Gorgeous! Winter color of Shirahama Beach

111124beach01Today we had strong west wind here in Shimoda.

When I went shopping I took this picture on the way to the beach.

We could see clear bule sea and Izu Oshima Island over the ocean.

From this season we sometimes have cold west wind, and we can see the boats which come to this sea to protect them from the strong wind.

Becuase they have more than 30 or 40 m/s wind at around Irozaki cape.

Too dangerous  for them it is!

2011/11/21 Shirahama Chuo Beach, with my son

111121beach03Yesterday the weather forecast said it would be colder, but it was not so cold today actually.

However we could see the Izu Oshima Island clearly from Sakuraya on the hill because the air, the sky and everything is getting into winter.

After school I went to pick up my son and went to the beach together.

This is "Shirahama Chuo Beach" next to "Shirahama Ohama Beach" which is the nearest one.

My son and I walked on the beach for a while. ( The small person in this picture is my son!)

2011/11/20 My son Yuuki on Shirahama Ohama Beach today

111120beach16Yesterday we had strong wind and heavy rain here in Shimoda.

It was almost typhoon, but we didn't have any problem with it.

Today the weather was changed!

We could see the blue sky and sea this morning, so I decided to go to the nearest beach "Shirahama" with my son this afternoon.

2011/11/17 Aloe Flowers are blooming.

111117itadobeach04I am a member of Izu Shirahama Tourist association.

Today we went to Itado area in Shirahama to clean up the Aloe field.

There are a lot of Aloe on a hill, and we can see Shirahama beach from this hill.

The Aloe festival will take place from December 9th.

This field is one of good points for the pictures, because the contrast of blue cloor of sea and red one of Aloe is very gorgeous.

Why don't you come to Shirahama to see it?

2011/11/13 A Ladybug

111113beach14Today it was sunny again, but warmer than yesterday.

I went to Shimoda downtown by bike this afternoon.

On the way to the downtown my bike chain was out of place, so I tried to fix it.

Then I found out a ladybug on the leaves along the street.

As it was very warm today, so was she sleeping under the sunshine?

No, she wanted to run away from me actually!
