feature in Awaji Iisland  : heartbeat of winter

When the morning sun went up, the fishing boats which had sailed to fish began to return to port all at once.

The sea of Awaji Island still offers us many blessings.

Soon, sand lance fishing starts, and then spring comes.

Although the cold of winter is the severest now, season also began approach of spring.

Although mountain dies down in winter, many birds visit my yard and seashore.

I introduce the birds that are flying to the seashore.

Three black cormorants were profiled by the shining Osaka Bay.

Kites quietly are flying high up in the air all day. 

Sea gulls often are flying on the sea quickly.

For just a moment, the two birds were flying high up in the air, like an air battle.





A sea gull is on the sea.

Several sea gulls were floating on inner side sea of the breakwater.

The flower of the New Year beginning is a white narcissus in Awaji Island.

Tolerating the harsh winter’s cold, the narcissist that grows gregariously on the cliff gives us freshness and loveliness.

This is a narcissus that blooms in my yard, and is one of a few flowers that bloom at winter.

If plum trees become in full bloom, we are waiting eagerly for full bloom of cherry tree.

Some seasonal visitors are robins and blue heron. We are looking forward to the blooms of spring, but we may have one more snow storm brewing.

    Thank you for your visit.
