Shimoda and Shirahama

Chris and I took a last-minute getaway trip to Shirahama for the weekend. We went with no plan and no hotel reservation, but ended up finding a nice place on the ocean for a night.

ocean right off of the hotel
The water felt sooo good! Not warm, but just cool enough for a hot day

The hotel beach was a great beach for beachcombing

lots of sea glass lying on the beach
...and some sea glasses :)
We went to an aquarium in Shimoda...pic below is Chris's hand in a tank
where he could feel little fish eating or sucking on his hand
A first for both of us: feeding the dolphins
