This week has been just me, Rayce and Avie Jo. Dan is with the scouts near Tokyo at scout camp, and Danielle is at her first year of girl's camp. We've laid low pretty much the whole week but it's been nice, mostly because I haven't cooked a meal and have barely cleaned (we'll clean tomorrow before dad gets back), but we wanted to get out somewhere today so we went down to Hachinohe.

Our first stop was Kabushima or Seagull Island. We've been here before and honestly I never understood why it's called seagull island...until today. I guess its a nesting spot for seagulls so this time of year all the baby's begin to hatch from their eggs and there are seagulls EVERYWHERE. We had umbrellas, and not for rain.
Little seagull chicks. They don't look like seagulls at all.
It truly is a seagull island.
After that we drove down the coast to Tanesashi, the grassy beach in Hachinohe. The cliffs are beautiful.
Another overcast day, apparently this is pretty typical weather for northern Japan this time of year.
Hunting for crabs.
Rayce usually decides last minute that he'd rather let the crabs go than bring them home. Sometimes with a little prompting from mom.
