Last week was mostly cloudy and rainy weather. When the sun finally came out, I went to see cosmos in nearbly ranch. BUT it was getting wrapped in a fog as altitude increases even though there was only 30 minutes drive from my house. When I got there, hundred thousand cosmos were all in a white mist which were very fantastic. There was really freezing though.
I was waiting for the sun for a while, and when I left there, it turned fully sunny weather. NICE :)
Anyway taking photos with Maro is extremely difficult!!! PLEASE CHILL OUT, runaway dog MARO!!
I have been to Tottori to attend a Buddhist memorial service for Yusuke's grand father last weekend. I could stay there only for 3 days, but Koruri soon got used to Yusuke's family, and enjoyed staying there. Especially, she loved a rabbit which named "Kiku" .
The only thing that disappointed me about Nagano is no sea in this prefecture! I like the most of parts in Nagano except for that thing. I never get bored watching Japanese norhtern alps covered with snow in winter. Daddy grew up near a seacoast in Tottori, so always says missing the sea. Then we've decided to go to the sea in Nigata. I looked for the beach on the Internet which is not crowed, has rocky shore, is clear water, and can get withing 2hrs from here, and I found Nishikujiranami beach. There was small cove, but it was before summer holidays, so there was not many people, and we could set up our big tarp. I could see many blowfish was swimming :) They were really cutie fish!
This was the first time to let her swim in the sea, so I was little worried about her, but seemed she was really having good time. She will be a resident of Tottori, and be able to spend plenty of time to play in the sea. Good for ya.
I really really upset about trash of the beach. If there was cleaned, it would be nicer. There were sea wrack and even pile of garbage bags of leftovers :( Is it so much to ask to bring back garbage????? I cannot understand. A lot of Japanese have lack common sense. There was no such dirty beach in other countries I've been to.
Today is the first day of July, and also Canada day. Canada is my most favorite county. I love their culture, nature, people and everything in there. They really know how to enjoy their time especially playing sports. This photo is a scene that I travelled with my husband by bicycle. This day was Canada day, and I attached Canadian flag which I bought in a ｓouvenir shop. My husband got it at a toll booth of a national park.
My OZ friend visited me last week, and we went to Tokyo, Kamikochi and Takayama city. It was beautiful sunny day in Kamikochi. I met the guy who was carrying the dog on his back! Carrying Maro on my back....No way... It's impossible
