The BIRD

The BIRD

this is my adorable little bird who thinks he is human and loves to drink out of tall cups. His talent is screaming and ripping bits of papers to put in between his feathers to fluff him self up. He also enjoys having a lot of attention.

Here we are on a ferry on our way back from visiting Grandma and Grandpa Shimizu. There were lot's of Jellyfish in the water.


Tide pools

Tide pools

These are the tide pools. You can see Erika and Anna's bottom in the bottom left. Kent is in the middle in the orange shirt.
The tide pools had lots of crabs, fish, sea urchins and even shrimp! The week after this pic was taken we went again with our snorkels and the water was much clearer so we were able to lots of fish, and Anna and I even saw a couple of little squid! They were cute swimmers.
This is all in Tokyo Bay (although 70km from Tokyo) which is pretty amazing. I guess a few years ago the water was pretty nasty. Lets here it for the tree huggers!


Beach

Beach

One of the good things about living on an island is you are always close to the ocean. We went with some friends to a secret spot they have been going to for years. This is the evening picture from the sand portion. A few hundred meters south is a tide pool portion, I will post that as well.
The week after these pics we went again, and Erika was stung by a Jelly fish. Jelly fish rule the seas around here from mid-August to October so you only get a few weeks to enjoy the summer beach!


Pika and Erika
