The weather today is fine but partly cloudy. My husband and I went to Miyajima. We used my husband's car today. My husband's car is bigger than mine. His car is newer than mine. I was a little bit worried about his driving. Since my husband retired this spring, his car isn't used everyday. I felt something wrong. When we were in the first tunnel, my husband complained that our car acts strange. Our car went slower and slower until it almost stopped. There were many cars traveling at speeds of 100 km/hr. I switched on the hazard light. In order to avoid being bumped by the cars behind us, we should go to the shelter. 秋の宮島...いえ安芸の宮島 My husband stopped the engine of the car at the shelter. He waited for a while before he started the engine again. Then the car was okay. We were relieved. I thought that since the car was not used for a long time, its condition was bad. We were so scared this morning because of that. 船から撮影 We arrived to Miyajima safely. There were a lot of tourists. Itsukushima shrine was first built in 593 and then Kiyomori Taira was rebuilt. The shrine was designated as a UNESCO World heritage site in December 1996. I was a frequent visitor there since early childhood.
We went to the shrine when the tide was low. I wish it was high tide. We had no choice. The Japanese maple tree was very beautiful. The red leaves were now at their best in the Miyajima. I was very glad I could go there.
I brought my mother to the hospital this morning. We waited for a long time for my mother's turn to come. She has to meet the doctor for a check up after her surgery. Water has gathered in her breast. The doctor took the water out. The water was mixed with blood. There were two big syringe. Why did water gathered in her breast? I didn’t ask the doctor because I was afraid. I will bring my mother to the hospital next week.
My mother and I went to the restaurant. We usually go to a Japanese restaurant. We went to a western food restaurant. It was a long time since we last ate there. But my mother doesn't like that place.
I spent a lot of time with my mother today. And I’m happy because she looks fine today.
The most important things can't be seen. 最も大切なものは、目に見えない…愛、思いやり、優しさ、空気も(笑)...
Today it was heavy yellow sand. Yellow sand obscured our view. I couldn’t hang-dry the washed clothes and futon outside. Our cars were covered with many sand. It includes the chemistry so I’m afraid for our body......
There was a lecture on taking pictures. All photographer's gathered on a certain place. It started at 10am - 3pm... We were on location. We took pictures of the red leaves today. The members are friendly and they are nice people... There were 10 participants...
There were lots of maple trees. There were beautiful trees aflame with red and yellow. I was fascinated. Time flew so fast today.
But taking a picture was difficult. I really felt the need to learn more.
I went to the river as usual today. There were wild monkey. They were eating a persimmons. I was little bit afraid but maybe there were no food in the mountain. I was waiting for the kingfisher in the tent. When I saw the bird I became cheerful immediately. I heard someone’s voice outside my tent. There was a policeman. I said “ what happened?” He said “Is the car parking in the vacant area yours?”. "Yes, it is" The policeman said that I have to move my car. The resident of that called a policeman because my car is causing disturbance. I don't think that my car is causing any disturbance. But I had to move my car. It was not my day. 証拠写真だけどお猿さんの嬉しそうなお顔…分かるかな？
There is a photography exhibition for our photography club. It started today and it will continue for two days. Club member on duty should go to there but I had to take care of my mother. Club members will be the ushers for the exhibition. So all members are on duty this year except me. I was able to go there because I was able to take some free time on my schedule.
I saw a friend there. I haven't see my friend for a long time. I was glad so I approach her at once. But she was speaking to someone else. I waited until they end talking. I was sitting on the chair on the side. I sat where she can surely see me. However she turned her back at me and disregarded. I was surprised by her action. I was shocked. Why did she act like that. I didn't notice that I had tears in my eyes. I was hurt by her attitude.
I heard that she was nasty and selfish. But I believe that she is good. She influenced me about pictures.
I was volunteer together with her, we went to take pictures , and we went to many places together. I just wish I was imagining things only. She gave me a cold shoulder. It was a shocking experience today.
It was a perfect autumn day. My husband and I went to the mountain to watch the red leaves. But it is still a little bit early. We walked along a mountain path for 2 hours. There is a waterfall there. We crossed the river by boat. There was just a single boatman. The small boat went through a crag. I felt a little thrilled.
My husband stumbled on a road bump. He fell down and grazed his knee. He doesn’t exercise every day. He lacks exercise so has a slow reflexes I think.
The weather was fair and it's not windy today. Today was the autumn festival in my area. There was a Kagura show last night. My husband went there. My daughter and grandchildren visited my house. They were so excited to watch the parade. There was a portable shrine parade this morning. They visited each houses in our area. And then the portable shrine carriers will give sake to the homeowners. The children followed the portable shrine.
