Sashimi with Yumi & other Wakayama Delights

A travel blog entry by marybc


... the cutest little uniform. Grandpa is looking after the kids after school which means Yumi, Shane and I don't have to rush home.
Turns out Yumi had never seen the Gyuba-doji Statue so we began our day with the three of us walking to the site. We were all amazed to see a number of bright orange crabs on the trail.... must have been fresh water 'tree' crabs ?? out to enjoy the morning rain???!! From there Shane and I continued to walk (in ...

Last day of hiking
