Hiking and Crabs

Filed under: — Andy @ 4:57 pm

South towards the end of the peninsula there is a short hiking trail that ends at the ocean. Once near the ocean, along the trail you can search for and try to catch crabs, with the red clawed variety being famous in the area.

We went back to the Yokosuka museum of art to check out the Animals exhibit. This time we also walked down to the beach for some fun in the water.

Charter Fishing

Filed under: — Andy @ 7:04 am

I got to go charter fishing with a group from work. In all the time I have been in Japan, I think this was the first time I have been out fishing on a boat. We caught many red rock fish (Kasago) and a few miscellaneous other fish as well. I had a great time, although it was a very windy day and the waves were actually pretty rough once we got out. The fish were taken home, cleaned, battered, and deep fried or just salted and grilled.

Hiking with Cat

Filed under: — Andy @ 6:51 am

It was a nice day so we decided to take a short hike up the local mountain. On the way up, there was a friendly cat that decided to follow us for quite a while.

Melina made it almost to the top before she ran out of energy. Then it was my job to carry her back down.
