Summer Holidays お盆休み烏帽子の心07

So it has been a week since the last fight, and I have tried to find some pictures that I could use here, but it just doesn't seem to be that easy. I have spent my week just taking it easy and playing with the kids, but now I want to start training again. I am not quite sure yet when the next fight for me is up, but I want to be ready for it. It is the summer holidays in Japan right now, and it is called the Obon yasumi. People get to go back to their parents place and then they all go and pay their respects to the ones that have passed away. My wife told me that this is not a good time to be going to the beach, because the dead come out and try to snag you back in the water. It is kind of a Urban Myth, but we actually went to this event called the "Eboshi no Kokoro" on Sunday. It was an event to promote cleaning the beach up, and generally looking after the environment. But it was held at the beach in Chigasaki, so I thought that it would be a good chance to jump into the ocean. It was dirty! That was the first thing that got me thinking twice about it. After the ocean in Hawaii, it was hard to even think about jumping into that kind of water. But the kids were having a ball and so we ended up playing around for a while. That is just until I got stung badly by a jelly fish, and then my oldest girl got stung! I don't know if that had anything to do with the Urban Legends, but I got out of that water like a bat out of hell.

I am thinking that we are not going to the beach in Japan for quite a while unless it is in a place where we know that the water is clean. It just takes out all the fun when you are swimming amongst all the dirt and you can't even see the bottom of the water you are standing in...

お盆休みになりました、天気は最高にいいですけど練習するのにちょっと苦しいです。試合から一週間がたちました、その間には子供とよく遊んで。テレビいっぱい見ました、最近は24って言うドラマのシーゾン3,4,5のDVDを知り合いから借りて毎日見ています。しかし、練習はしたくなった、体は普通にもどりましたし問題ないと思いながら。何とお盆休みには実家に帰るので練習はしたくってももう少し待たないと始まらない。嫁に聞いた話なんですけどお盆のときは海に入るもんではないらしい、足が引っ張られたりするって。。。ちょっと怖い話です。死んだ人は帰ってくるので、海に入ると危険らしい!それは本当かどうか分からないけど日曜日は”烏帽子の心07”Byバイク王!”に行きまして、そしてステージでの挨拶の後にせっかくですので海に入るじゃないかと思った。海は残念ながら本当に汚かったです、でも子供はやはり遊ぶのは大好きでしばらく我慢しながら遊んでいましたら。くらげに指された!!!あれってめちゃ痛いよ!一番上の子もさされた。あれはあれで終わりでした、もう汚い海に入りたいと思わないです。たしかにハワイの海はあまりのもきれいだったので、この前の海にびっくりしました!それと足は引っ張られたよりもお腹にくらげの後はずーと痛かったです。。。イベントは本当に良かったと思いました、若い人たちにClean the Beachの心を音楽を聞きながらテーマにしたイベントで毎年メンバーは増えています。来年はもっと大きいイベントにらればいいです、そしてきれいな海を目指しましょう!
