As I found out that the aloe flowers had already started blooming this season I went to the aloe field in Shirahama this afternoon.
Today it was cloudy here in Shimoda, so I was not able to take good shots.
But if it was sunny, you would be able to see the beautiful scenery of the red flowers and the blue sea under the blue sky.
I started to clean the dining room on last Monday.
I had to move tabels, chairs and everything to the upper floor to clean and wax the dining floor.
It took 4 days to finish at last, because I did it all by myself.
I’m very happy to see the shining floor after waxing.
Today we had very strong north wind again.
I went to the beach to take phtos this afternoon.
The sand on the beach is blown away by this strong wind.
That’s why the local community set up the fences to protect the sand.
By the way I finished to clean the 3rd room yesterday, so I started to clean the last bedroom finally today.
It was sunny and very hot here in Shirahama today.
There were some people playing, swimming and surfing on the beach.
The weather forecast says it will be rainy after noon tomorrow and heavy rain and strong wind tomorrow night because of the typhoon approaching.
They are from India and live in Tokyo.
They came to Shimoda for the 1st time with their parents who visited Japan from India.
On the 1st day they went to Kawazu town to see cherry blossoms and Kawazu seven waterfalls, and went to Irozaki cape after check out.
Thank you very much for staying with us.
The blue sky came back to Shirahama beach today.
I wanted to show the customers this beautiful landscape, who checked out this morning, because it had been cloudy and rainy during their stay.
We had a little strong south-west wind, but it was very warm here in Shimoda today.
When I was walking in the mountain nearby I found out the natural violet flowers on the ground.
It was sunny and very warm today.
My son and I went to the middle of Izu peninsula for cycling, today.
We went to Mishima city by bike to eat Ramen noodle and to see the natural water spring from Mt. Fuji.
I wanted to see the cherry blossoms, but it was too early, but we had very good cycling looking over the Mr. Fuji.
You can see the other pictures on Sakuraya’s Facebook album.
The trees in Shirahama have red leaves in these days.
Shirahama district in Shimoda city has warm climate, so the autumn comes very slowly.
Today the marathon race of Shirahama primary school was held, and after that, I found out a young wild boar on the way to the school.
Wild boar is basically nocturnal, so we don’t see them under the sun.
