The first sign of light for 2011!
The sun just starting to peep over the horizon @ 6:40am.
People gathered at the beach (note the nice frosty white sand. Brrrr).
Happy NEW YEAR 2011 from the Land of the Rising Sun.
It's also the Year of the Rabbit according to the Chinese which is the same as my birth year.
Fun surf @ Kakou with only friends and really fun waves!
Ozoni soup, a traditional New Year dish, at DONYA in Kamogawa for lunch.
Kuro mame, black beans, with a touch of gold.
Another surf with good friends Jun (pictured), Enishi, and Ponta surfing the rights @ Kakou in the afternoon.
The Orange (Y-Kun) and the Lemon (Mi-chan) enjoying the fine weather while the dad's surf.
