When I took my daughter to the school by car this morning I took this picture on the way.
We had a lot of rain last night, but the sun came back again.
And it had been very warm here in Shimoda today, but it will be colder tonight and tomorrow.
The weather forecast says they may have a snow on Friday around Tokyo.
In Japan there are a lot of kinds of Sakura, but this Kawazu Sakura is very famous for its early blooming.
Of course, Kawazu Sakura tree just in front of the entrance of Pension Sakuraya has already started to bloom.
But it's a little bit earlier than usual to bloom.
After the rainy day we had a little big waves here in Shirahama.
And we could see the rainbows by offshore wind and wave spray.
After I took my dauter to the school by my car I took this picture on the seaside road between Shimoda and Shirahama.
I took a monochrome picture of this scenery for the first time, but it's very interesting !!!
When I was walking on the seaside road this late afternoon I saw fishermen were setting up the red nets into the water to fish Iseebi (Japanese lobster).
Winter is the best season for lobster fishing in Japan.
They may be able to get a lot of lobsters after hauling up the net tomorrow early morning.
Where the strong wind yesterday has gone?
We had very strong west wind yesterday, but there was no wind today.
I went to the nearest beach "Shirahama" after a long time.

I went to Kisami Ohama Beach by walking from Shimoda yesterday morning.
We didn't have big waves here in Shirahama, but they had very good waves for surfing yesterday.
These two beaches are located in the same city, but the condition is different.

Are you coming to Shimoda by car? or do you like walking?
It was very beautiful day again, so I walked on the beach and went to Ogasaki Wing.
This is a very good view points which has a gorgeous landscape with the Pacific Ocean, Izu Seven Islands, and Shirahama Beach.
It takes about an hour by walking from Pension Sakuraya.
If you take route #135, you should stop at this point and take a break.
