Tango Hanto 2

The next day was perfect. Hot, dry air no wind, warm water, felt like in Hawaii!! We went swimming and were relaxing again hihi , then in the afternoon we went for walk on the farm in the mountains.

Tango Hanto

Tango Hanto again, this time with only Momo and Uri and Lili! There was a lot of traffic so we only arrived at 4pm...and there were big waves. We saw para gliders and lots of surfers. The sunset was amazing and after dinner we relaxed in front of a big fire.....pure relaxation this time hihi

Kittens in the garbage!!!!

About 2 weeks ago one of our neighbors found 3 kittens in a little box in the garbage...:-(
He couldn't let them there so he took them to a friend, Mrs. Yamasaki! She has been taking care of them and fed them from 100 g up to now 300 g!
They are all doing fine now and, thanks to Erika, they found a new owner in Kyoto who might take all 3!! Lucky, cute kittens!! Wish there would be more success stories like these in Japan.....

On the first moring Kyoko lost her car key on the beach and we were looking for it but couldn't find it....finally Kazu was the lucky one who found the key!! But unfortunately Bea got sick!!!
During the search she start eating
lots of things on the beach,
maybe some 'yaki nikku' ?
with lots and lots of sand....and they had to
drive to the vet!
After all this action on the first day, we had a really relaxing, beautiful second day!!! Felt like being in Hawaii!!

Tango Hanto

This spring vacation, again, camping in Tango Hanto. We discovered a new beach which looked like in Koh Samui , Thailand....beautiful rock formations! But we only reached it after some difficult climbing...hihi
And again we had a lovely sunset.

Beagle Meeting April

Our last Beagle meeting was on April 5th in Sanda again. This time Lili had a small injury on her paw and was just standing around most of the time watching Run jumping (Agility) and Uri checking out the piggy...until finally she also did some agility hihihi....I only caught her from the back hm...!!

At the end of the year 2008, we went to Nara with Erica to make Mochi. A Japanese soft rice cake. The whole time Lili and the other dogs were waiting patiently for their share of Mochi....but it never came :-( sorry Lili!!

But at least Lili met a few cute dogs to play with!!

5.Christmas lunch

Kayo made a beautiful jade amulet for Lili's collar, and for me some earrings with aquamarine, thank you Kayo.

Our Christmas 2 years ago was in a German village in Okayama and this time it looked like a British village, very nice.
Can't wait for Christmas 2009!!!!
Merry Christmas and HAPPY NEW YEAR!!
