It was sunny here in Shirahama today.
Kawazu Sakura tree in our field is getting finished blooming, but we can see rape blossoms just in front of Pension Sakuraya building.
Our customers who stayed today said there were a lot of people came to see Sakura blooming on the river side in Kawazu town.
I think it will be the best timing to see Sakura blooming next week.
After I took my daughter to the train station this morning I took these pictures at Shimoda harbor on the way home.
We can find out a lot of Kawazu Sakura trees in and around Shimoda, but most of them are now fully blooming!
It would be the best timing to see Sakura blossoms.
We had a little shower this early morning, but it became sunny after that.
Besides, it was really warm here in Shirahama today!
When I was walking on the beach this afternoon I found out a young guy got into the water with short trunks!!
He was not Japanese..
When I took my daughter to the school this morning I found out Frozen Dews on the leaves on the liver side in Rendaiji, Shimoda.
It was the first time for me to see it!!
Has spring already come to Izu peninsula? or are we still in winter?
After I took my daughter to the school, I walked on the beach this morning.
It was sunny and much warmer than yesterday here in Shirahama today.
Spring is coming to Izu peninsula little by little.
My family and I went to Shizuoka to meet my daughter yesterday.
On the way to Shizuoka, we could see the gorgeous Mt. Fuji with snow clearly under the blue sky.
By the way, after I came back from walking on the beach I saw a could of white eye in our garden this afternoon.
There are two loquat trees in our field.
They say February is the best season to make herbal loquat tea, so I made this tea after a long time.
The loquat herbal tea may benefit blood sugar and cholesterol, prevent loss of bone density, have anti-cancer benefits and so on.
It takes a little long time to make it, but this tea is non-caffeine, and also it's very delicious with sweet taste.
And of course it's good for diet !!
There were a lot of ships on the sea, because they came to this beach to protect themselves from the strong west wind.
I walked in the mountain behind Pension Sakuraya at around 2:00 PM, but I went to the beach to take pictures of ships under the stars after 5:00 PM.
It was really cold this late afternoon.
I walked on the beach and seaside road after I took my daughter to the school by my car this morning.
When I got to the beach there was just only one couple there…..
We had strong west wind here in Shimoda today, but it was really beautiful day in Shirahama.
After I took my daughter to the train station I took pictures of Amagi mountains this morning.
Yesterday they had a lot of snow in the mountain side of Izu peninsula, so the top of Amagi mountains were covered with snow this morning.
