Sunrise, sand, ships...


Waking up early offers a refreshing opportunity to observe the seasonal movements of the rising sun...
Here, we could see the sun rising off Shodoshima, literally translated to mean the Island of the Red Beans...


Along my way cycling to and from work, I get to enjoy these kind of scenes...
This stretch of the beach is quite rubbish-filled... arrrggghhh...
Yet, this is not stopping those folks from having a good time...


A few meters from that beach is this one...
Hmmm... would have loved to jump in for a dip myself...


I enjoy shooting pictures of ships during misty days...
This ferry boat is heading for the Osaka area...


This is another of a large number of ferry boats that ply the sea-lanes in my neighborhood...
Those pandas... nope, the ship is not going to China...


PS: Just got back from two weeks of vacation in Malaysia...
Weather there was much cooler than the hellish Japanese summer temperatures...
