Ishikawa Reef (日本海)

Ishikawa Reef

              Here was my last stop in my trip to the Japanese Sea , the extreme north of the Ishikawa peninsula . After 2 day of wind and rain  God gave me his reward , a beautiful sunny day , constant off shore wind , shoulder sometimes head high waves . The beach was beautiful and the water so blue . Amazingly, nobody in the water , just My self and Aimi Chan all long the beach , that was really cool . With that waves , I gave a break to the photos and I spent two hours body boarding  before taking  these photos . An unforgettable day to us . "ALOHA "

 Ishikawa-Ken (日本海)

         My second stop in the Japanese sea beachs was at  Ishikawa-ken close Kanazawa city , few surfers and friendly people . Most of the locals gave me a beautiful big smile and said "KONITIWA" or "HELLO" . After drive for hours ,it was nice to take a rest and eat some good food overthere . In the afternoon God has blessed us with a beautiful light coming out from the clouds, creating a beautiful light in to the water. I love Jesus ,  he never let me down . After that beer , beer and more beer . Aloha .

             I am very gratified to can contribute with my photo to Maylla's social project for poor children . Although the economy is growing a lot in Brazil, the country still suffers a lot with the  social inequality . Attitudes like this help to have a better country and a better world . If each of us make a small action in pro to disadvantaged people , surely We would have a better world . Good Job Maylla .
