As the local community had a beach cleaning this morning I went to the beach at 6:10. But it was cancelled because of the weather….
This early morning they typhoon #3 passed through out of Izu peninsula, so we had heavy rain a little bit.
But after that the blue sky came back to Shirahama beach.
I took these photos on the way to Shimoda for shopping this morning.
It was sunny and very hot here in Shirahama today.
But the weather forecast says it would be cloudy and rainy tomorrow…..
They came from Yokosuka in Kanagawa prefecture.
Actually it was the 3rd time for us to welcome him at our house.
He has stayed twice before and came and stayed 15 years ago when they had Thanksgiving party at Pension Sakuraya in 2004.
So my wife and I were very happy to meet him and his wife after a long time.
We are looking forward to meeting them in next September.
Thank you so much for staying with us.
They are a beautiful couple who came from Holland to Japan for the first time, and came to Shimoda from Kagoshima prefecture after 5 weeks journey in Japan.
During their stay they went to the nearest beach and many places in Shimoda.
I took them to the nearest bus stop by my car after check out because I had to go to Seven Eleven for shopping.
Thank you so much for staying with us for 5 nights.
We hope you will come to Japan again in the future and will be able to have good communications in Japanese!
This morning we were able to see the beautiful morning glow at around 4:30 here in Shirahama.
When I woke up this early morning the beautiful morning glow came into my sight. So I went to the middle of a slope to the beach to take photos.
I took these photos when I came back from Shimoda after shopping.
Today the wind was stopped at last. It was sunny and much more hotter than yesterday.
There were some people swimming in the water.
We had thunder storm last night, but he blue sky came back again here in Shirahama today.
The blue and clear sky made me very happy, we had very strong west wind though.
When I was working in my office this afternoon I heard a strange sound to beat the wall outside, so I came out of my room to check it and found two monkeys out of the entrance.
They sometimes come to our place to eat loquat fruit….
I took my wife to the train station by car this early morning and took some photos on the beach on the way home.
It was sunny and very hot before noon, but it became cloudy this afternoon and rainy after that. The weather forecast says we will have heavy rain and strong wind tomorrow.
