Hike and See in April.

Hike and See in April.

A golden sunrise moment over Fukuoka.
The meniscus has been responding nicely to some intra-joint injections, rest and muscle strengthening 
(said me-is-the-physical-therapist).
So it's back to early AM jogging with my buddies. 

Location: the hill at Odo Park.

 Then, one early Friday morning:

  Nomozaki here we come! 
A spin with Esther the Car.

Nomozaki is part of Nagasaki City.
 Driving the coast line just SW of the town is pretty and relaxing.
Here showing off with pure blue and clean water.

At one of the photo-stops, 
just in the center between these 2 rocks, we spotted
Gunkanjima! in the distance.
In the past, with Jan Haring, Alishan and Fukyo, 
we had sailed by " Battleship Island" many times.
Now we see it from the mainland.

Anyway, our mission-du-jour is of course:
Birdwatching and hiking..... know who does what.
While Esther is patiently waiting.
Sweet toyota-girl.

Next are some more scenery pictures taken during the hike.

School yard fun.
ALL ! the kids 
from the local elementary and junior high school.

 A zoom-in of Gunkanjima.
A battleship indeed.

 Port of Nomozaki.

Beaches are patiently waiting for the summer crowd.

 Small crop farming, this is countryside.

And while back in Fukuoka.....

Sakura blooming was over, but nothing to worry, 
other trees and plants kept us in-the-clouds with their flowers and smells.

This year the tsutsuji, aka azalia, was stunning.

Noriko san tries to blend in.

And as of April, 
Airbnb Experiences are promoting my hiking event in Imajuku.

Good fun, good fun.
