白浜 (Shirahama)

If we'd stayed on the train for another half hour or so we'd almost have been at the furthest southern point of Honshu.
We got off at Shirahama - Sean and me - a beach town on the Tonda river and overlooking Tanaba Bay. I guess it's south south west Wakayama Prefecture.
It was hot and the imported Australian sand was real white. Shirahama. 'White sands'.
By 5p.m. a typhoon coming up from below Okinawa was pushing the sea inland. The beachside public baths were closed. We walked along the coast until we came to a group of rock outcrops and watched a beautiful sun sink into some of the most hypnotic and biggest waves I've seen in some time.

Hi, PIK. I really like your sunset photo. I haven't been to Shirahama for ages. I found your blog 2 or 3 months ago by chance and I was surprised. I had been thinking to tell you or not but I think I've seen you at someone's party! It's almost 1 year ago,though. I'm living in the same city as you. Smalll World, ne!?
