Summer Days 3

The lovely landscape here

Another exciting day here.  I’ve been riding my bike and taking photos around. I’m happy there’s barely any traffic in these roads, cause I’m ridiculously clumsy trying to do everything at the same time.

I went by this temple a few days ago, and I came back today to do some shooting.  I’m so happy I’ve given myself these days to take in new sights, relax, and recharge my creativity.

Most of the houses here have their own veggie gardens and some of them sell their produce in little unmanned shops along the main road. They are called “Mujin Hanbaisho” in Japanese or “Honesty Box”, in English. You take what you want and leave the coins in a little box. I’ve never seen this in my home country, maybe because this concept wouldn’t work at all.

So since I’ve got here, I’ve been getting fresh and yummy vegetables and fruits from these shops .  Also Lisa, my neighbour, has brought me the excess bounty from her garden: Basil, Kyuri (cucumber) and Lemon grass.

And my friend Lori, who spent a couple of days here, brought me this yummy おみやげ (omiyage: a present) … home-made granola from Tokyo!

This is a peek of Ohama Beach. If it’s Winter time where you are, I’m sending you some warmth and sunshine from Izu Peninsula.

Happy Summer!
