So Long

Today Scott’s parents went back to the US. Kona came to the door to say goodbye to them.

"I’ll miss you, Kona."
"I’ll miss you too."

"Bye bye, Kona."
"Please come back to see us again."

Thanks for the lovely time. We are always thinking of you although we are far apart. So long… until we meet again.

Rainy Sunday

Too bad it’s raining so hard today.

"I wish it would stop raining soon."

I didn’t look like it was going to stop raining, so...

we decided to go to the sea in the rain.

Anglers fish even when it rains...

surfers surf even when it rains and...

Lupikona go for a walk even when it rains.

Having said that, Lupita doesn’t like getting wet.

"Hey Lupita, do you want to join me under the umbrella?"

"Thanks, Scott!" Lupita walked under the umbrella with Scott.

We picked up the glass mugs we made yesterday. Scott made the yellow one and I made the other one.

Autumnal Equinox

It was a cloudy and cool morning. Lupikona played on the beach...


While the dogs were taking daytime naps, the four adults went to...

a glass factory and experienced glassblowing.

On the beach in the late afternoon.

It gets dark early these days and...

the sky was looking more like an autumn sky.

Off to the Beach from Tokyo

Playing on the field in the morning.

Nice catch, Lupita!

Playing on the beach in the evening.

We all came to the beach house.

It has been almost 3 years since Lupikona said goodbye in Hong Kong.  Today...

we had a happy reunion with Scott’s parents in Japan and walked Lupikona together.

We stopped to look at a...


We have a hunch something good is going to happen.

Towel Scarf

Because it was sunny, Kona’s black head got hot. I wrapped a towel around her head as a substitute for a sun hat.

"Does this look good on me?"

Kona found a coconut.

"Let’s play!" She invited the coconut to play with her.

Although it didn’t move, she was jumping around to try to make it move.

Scott played coconut-rugby with Lupita.

She chased the rolling coconut.

Actually I forgot to bring a Frisbee and ball with us today, but...

we had a fun playing thanks to the coconut!

Beach Weekend Redux...

We are spending the weekend on the beach again.

The waves are big today!

"I’ll never come close to the waves!"

Lupita and...


were playing.


We had another good day and...

we had a big smiles on our faces.
