Travel Photo: Characters on the Ferry to Tsuken Jima
If you ever spot a boat with these mascots on the side, it's the ferry for Tsuken Island.
Three of us got aboard at 11AM and, did some walking and photography.
It isn't a very large island but, you do notice how peaceful it can be.
There are no taxi cabs, dump trucks or construction sites making a racket.
There may be a bird or two making some noise or, a farm tractor plowing.
But, you can pretty much, spend the day, hearing yourself breath.
It seems like, carrots are never in season, when I visit this island.
It must be winter time when the crop gets harvested. I don't hop on boats in the winter.
Maybe, if someone tells me when the Carrot Festival takes place, er....
...if they have something like a Miss Carrot beauty contest, I'd go visit in January !
The mission today, was to get some GPS coordinates done and, head on home.
It took some talking to locals to find a few locations and a bit of hiking.
By 3PM all the sites we went to see were located and the photography was done.
More about this trip will be posted at a later date but, I can give a hint, now.
