宇喜多家の墓。お盆のせいか、花がいっぱい。

The Grave. Obon, the 15th of August, is a holiday for Japanese people.

It is a time to welcome the spirits of their ancestors, by visiting their graves

and offering flowers and foods. Looks like this grave had many visitors, too.

ちょうど西日が差し込んでいて綺麗でしたが、

水の濁りもなかなかのもの。潮の引きもかなり強く、

入江から吸い出されそうになったので、早々に引き上げました。

The westering sun shone through the water, but the water was rather murky.

The receding tide was quite strong, and I was nearly pulled

out of the inlet. I decided to call it a day for this spot.

また息継ぎ。あまりに近くを泳いでくれるので、ついつい指先で甲羅にタッチ。

and breathing. The turtle swam so close to me that I couldn’t help touching the shell.
