restart in my English Blog-Diary

I intend to write my diary after a long interval.
Much water has flowed under the bridge.

I got transferred to the sales department, and then I moved to Tokyo alone this October.

But I didn't change my line of work.

Single life made myself easy. However, my wife must be busy with hard housework.

Summer holiday

I take a week of summer holiday. I have to go to my office tomorrow noon.

In the first two days I went fishing alone. But I spent the daytime watching the Beijing Olympics on TV at a hotel.

Then I tried to challenge evening chance. I caught only small some trouts but I missed big one.

At the last several day I'm spending most of the summer holiday with my family.

We went to watch the firework show. Those overjoyed my kids and wife.

And we went to Dolphin Center in Kagawa Pref.

People like the animal pals for a stress-buster.

And we went to the Awaji-shima dairy farm.

My daughter tried cow milking.

We enjoyed sommer vacation.

Masu salmon

I came back from a business trip to Hokkaido yesterday.

My company hold a lecture there last Friday night. I took charge of the lecture meeting as MC.

After the lecture I went to the river by rent-a-car.

But I was very sleepy. So I had a nap in the rental car. To my surprise, I woke up at 9 am.

Actually I enjoyed my short time in Hokkaido. I caught Iwana, Yamame and Sakuramasu.

Iwana is japanese char. Yamame is Seema. Sakuramasu is Masu salmon.

This picture is Masu salmon about 50-cm in size.

Next Friday I 'll go to Hokkaido Pref. on my business trip. I hope to catch the big one.

It was very sunny and warm the past couple of days.

I went fly-fishing at the Hidaka river in the Ryujin area with friends.
