We've been swamped with our new home planing, and should have no time for leisure on this weekend.

But we already had special plan with our daughter's friend's family to go camping together. They booked HAKAMATAKI campground for us.

It was located in the forest and close to HEDA harbor, west part of IZU Peninsula. A little over 1 hour drive from our house.

These tree made good shade for us.

They were trying to catch the fish by their net.

I could have a time for fly fishing at small stream.

Many rainbow trouts were caught by peacock curved shank parachute.

Small but beautiful wild AMAGO trout.

The next day, we went down to the sea, HEDA harbor.

They tried SUIKA-WARI, watermelon bust, first time. Its taste was also good.

We enjoyed early summer of west IZU Peninsula so much

We had a barbecue party

with U-family by KANOGAWA river today. It was so nice sunny day.

We talked mainly about our Boise life. Hope they'll have good time there.

our new home building plan got started.

We didn't make any decision yet though, thinking of it seriously.

It is a kind of hard work sometime, but fun time also.

Hope we'll have good one soon! I made up my mind to said good-bye to fishing for a while...
