It's windy and cloudy, but sometimes blue sky appears today.
I took this picture through the window of the guest room.
It will be sunny tomorrow, the weather forecast says.
When I went to Shimoda for shopping I took photos on the way.
Look at that water!
Today the sea water was very clear in Shirahama.
I want to get into the water right now!!!

They came from Germany and stayed at Sakuraya for 5 nights.
It was a 4th time for us to meet them, and they stay for 5 or 6 nights every time.
Actually we have some customers who came again as a second time, but there is nobody came for the 4th time.
We really appreciate it very much.
By the way they gave us a wonderful present.
These are German wine and Austrian ice wine. Last year they sent us these wines after staying and we loved them very much.
We are really looking forward to drinking them after busy season.
Thank you very much for staying with us and wonderful presents.
They came from Brooklyn in New York and stayed
for 3 nights.
It had been almost sunny and they went to the beach every
day for swimming.
Thank you for staying with us.
By the way, when they checked in they gave us presents.
These are MAST BROTHERS CHOCOLATE which are very popular in New York in these days.
It was a first time for me to see and eat the
chocolate with "Chili Peppers"!!
Of course it's sweet, but it's not
only spicy but also very hot!!
Thank you for these presents!!
I went to the beaches in Shirahama after 10 days.
We are very busy everyday, so we don't have enough time to go to the beach to take pictures.
Obon holidays had already finished, but there sitll were a lot of people on the beach.

Our customers sometimes ask me,
"Do you have jellyfishes there?"
My answer is "No".
I don't know why, but there is no jellyfish "Aurelia" here in Shirahama even after the middle of August.
But the other kind of jellyfish called "physalia" is driven by the strong south west wind to the sea in Izu peninsula once several years.
If you find out this blue jellyfish, don't touch it!
The water temperature is usually getting higher and higher this month, so why don't you come to Shirahama?
