Although we have still several rooms to be cleaned, have cleaned up most of part and likely are ready for New Year.
Have a nice New Year's Day to all!
Male Bull-headed Shrike, MOZU was also beautiful with the setting sun .
Outside construction is close to end now.
And marvelous view of the declining sun from second floor. Give us a wonderful tomorrow also, please.
View from top of KAMO Park which is located just below our house.
Good night, moon.
Today as just two days before our moving in, I was here in new house for several preparation like Internet connection.
So far it seems good connection, and this is memorial first post from our new house.
The right pic is the light of dinning room, likely my wife did good selection!
By the way, I got this wonderful prize from Mr. Gold as big boss. It was for MVP of our Salmon fishing trip last month.
His handmade minnow lure looks so fantastic. Let me try it soon, Mr. Gold, if I've done for all set up of new house...
to take a walk with me is binoculars. Since she got jealous when I watched wild birds with a zoom lens, I gave it to her.
At first she had difficulty to use it just a little bit, but now know how to handle it very well.
HAKU-SEKIREI, white wagtail was on the car door mirror. She (or he) seemed to like that place.
This brown-eared bulbul, HIYODORI was so tame.
Even we were so close to it, looked like never minded us.
KADOIKE pond was turning to winter scene by degrees.
Lance, are you ready for winter?
Getting close, but not yet...
It was fine but a kind of chilly morning.
View of first floor from kitchen area. We checked every location of like a wall socket, and decided a height of each shelf.
We have still a lot of things to do though, get walking on air now!
Wonderful morning sunrise welcomed us.
Good luck, Lance!
My secret weapon 'Big Dancer' worked so well!
Definitely my first Salmon in my life!!
Must be one of fresh run.
3rd one by simple pink Zonker with eye shaped weight.
4th one as last fish was by volumed pink Zonker.
We all looked happy with each Salmon story today, except only a man who got skunked. Don't guess who, guys please.
For myself, it was so fantastic day, of course. I learned many tactics and basic of Salmon fly fishing. Couldn't wait next year!!
of Salom fishing, we was there KIDOGAWA river to check current condition of river and fish.
We left NUMAZU before 6AM and arrived there around noon. I as car driver as too sleepy and tired, because couldn't have enough sleep time last night.
But let's get started river investigation anyway!
Fishing itself looked like just 'slow' today. Is tomorrow OK for us???
Only few people caught fish.
After fishing time, KIDOGAWA Fish and Game's member started to do something.
They were catching fish by huge fishing net.
Too many Salmons!!
