Late Summer Outing
A map of one of our favorite day trips in Amakusa's southern extremity. We went last weekend with two of our friends. 天草の好きなカヤック旅の地図です。先週末友達二人と漕いできた。
Like going for a walk in the park. のんびりで公園の散歩見たいな感じ。
I found some tasty shells while diving. Mr. O. pries them open with a knife.
This little guy was living in one of the shells. なんか可愛い。貝の中にいた。
Mr.O had just purchased a beautiful Waterfield Kayak "Arashi" sea kayak.
A creepy discovery. In years gone by, when contagious diseases could not be easily controlled, sick individuals were often banished to small uninhabited islands to die. One of these, Kuwashima, is said to have such a history; this sometimes gives the otherwise idyllic island a spooky feeling. This time, our friend discovered human-like bones embedded in the dirt where a small landslide exposed the underlying soil and rock.
