Snorkeling at the neighborhood...

Was working in the vegetable garden...
Wooh, with the temperature shooting up to 36 degrees, I was sweating like mad...
After lunch, went snorkeling at the Japan Inland Sea..
There were many holiday makers, this being the O-bon season (All Souls Day)...
There were many boats around, with lots of kids and families...
But the one menace is the water scooter, I would say...
These people are the marine version of the motor-bikers on the road, those young 'bosozokus'...
Every year, there are reports of accidents and deaths as a result of their stunts...
Found an isolated corner with lots of boulders...
Woah, nice... lots of cute little fishes swimming around...
Tried to take some pictures but ohh, tricky...
Ended up taking home three shellfish...
