Golden Week

We spent our Golden Week vacation at Yoko's parents' house in Gobo. The highway, which starts here on Rokko Island, now goes all the way to Gobo, ending just a few kilometers from their house. We had to make three stops in Osaka to pay tolls, but then it was non-stop all the way to Gobo. It took 90 minutes. I can remember a time not too long ago when the same trip took 6 hours or more!

As usual, we didn't do very much. We went to the beach (Enjyuu no hama) with Yoko's brother and his son Kouji, and the kids gathered various shellfish from the rocks. We also went to the top of the mountain behind the beach and discovered a nice little park, complete with hang glider launch ramp!
