My son had to go to the station this early morning because they had basketball games at Inatori junior high school today. I took these pictures on the way home from the station.
I wanted to take photos of sunrise this morning, but it had been cloudy
all day long even though the weather forcast said it would be sunny.
We had cold west wind but it was beautiful today!
As I saw the blue and clear water from our house I wen to the beach to take photos.
It was cloudy and we had very strong north wind again today.
As I had to go to Shimoda for shopping this morning I took our guests to the train station.
But I went to the beach behind Shirahama shrine to take a picture before going to Shimoda.
They came to Japan from Canada for the 3rd time and stayed with us for two nights..
Actually their son lives in Numazu city with his wife, so they come to Japan and stay at their son’s house.
During their stay they went to the nearest beach and walked in and around Shimoda city.
And they went to Izu Kogen after check out.
Thank you very much for staying with us.
P.S They gave us the friendship pin badge of Canada and Japan.
Thank you so much for your present.
This is Kawazu Sakura tree next to our building.
The leaves of this tree were blown by the typhoon in last October much earlier than usual.
So this tree is now misunderstanding a liitle bit and some buds have already started to bloom.
We had very strong north wind here in Shirahama Today.
So there were some windsurfers on the beach.
Actually I was going to take Nordic walking to Sotoura beach this morning as usual, but I didn’t walk on the seaside road because of the sand blown by the strong wind.
When I was walking near the fisherman’s port in Shirahama I found out that there had been some people swimming in the water!
The water temperature is about 20 degrees celsius, so actually it is possible to get into the water.
By the way they had good waves to surf yesterday, but they had no waves today.
Some poeple were trying surfing with the instructor, but it was a good condition for beginners, I think.
As we had a week holiday for my family until the day before yesterday I walked on the seaside road this afternoon after a week.
We had cold wind yesterday, but didn’t have wind today.
So it was very warm under the sun when I was walking.
They had a little good waves to surf this afternoon.
It was sunny this morning, but the sky was covered with a lot of clouds after 2:00 pm.
I should have started to walk much earlier to take photos of the blue sea under the sun.
