The sand art cometition of Shirahama primary school was held by PTA this afternoon as an anual event.
All of school students participated this competition and the parents supported their children.
It was sunny but not very hot, so this is good condition for sand working.

After that my son and I came back home by walking on the beach.
We had a little strong west wind, but it was very hot under the sun shine.
When I was walking on the beach I took this picture behind Shirahama shrine.
That rock looks like a big ship or submarine, I think.
This is one of beautiful scenery in Shirahama.

The sea water was shining under the sun light.
And I went to Shimoda city by bicycle this later afternoon.
The sun had already set in the western mountain, but the city was beautiful in the evening twilight time.
There is a big tree of loquat in our garden next to Sakuraya's building.
