It was almost cloudy and we sometimes had shower today.
I walked on the seaside road this early evening after the rain stopped.
Yesterday I went to Minami-Izu town to see Sakura blossoms.
It was the beautiful scenery with the fully blossoming Sakura on the riverside.
I went to Kawazu town to take may daughter twice for a part time job today as usual.
There were not so many visitors in Kawazu town because of weekday.
I walked on the sandy beach after several days this afternoon.
We had strong west wind and the sky sometimes was covered with a lot of clouds, but it was almost sunny and very hot here in Shirahama today.
When I was driving it was very hot inside my car!!
We had heavy rain last night, but the blue sky came back to Shirahama today.
Kawazu-Zakura is now fully blossoming not only in Kawazu town but also around Shimoda city.
Of course you can see the tree in our garden.
It would be the best timing to see the blossoms next week in this season.
I went to the cape Tsumekizaki by Nordic walking looking over the blue sea this afternoon.
We had strong west wind but it was very beautiful day.
There were some cargo ships dropping anchor off the coast because they have to protect their ships from the strong west wind.
When I saw outside this morning I found out white snow on the top of Izu Oshima Island!
I thin It was the 1st time that they had snow there.
I took a Nordic walking looking over the snow and the ocean to Shimoda city this afternoon.
Sakura trees are now fully blossoming.
The color of the trees are changed by the condition of the sky, especially at the twilight time.
These are the pictures that I took in Kawazu town this morning.
The original cherry tree of Kawazu-Zakura is now blossoming about 30 %.
It was discovered in the 1950’s by one of the local people on the river side in Kawazu town, and now there are over 8,000 trees in this town.
This kind of Sakura is very famous for blossoming between early February and early March, because the other kind of Sakura usually blossom in around April in Japan.
