Mystery Mihama Mountain Mushrooms

thread
Mystery Mihama Mountain Mus...
After camping one night in Wakasa-Wada, I packed up & went by train to Mihama, where there is a mountain that I hiked up several years ago. That time, I saw wild deer & wild boar (イノシシ), but this time, I only saw some wild... mushrooms. I don`t know much about mushrooms, so I can`t tell you what kind they are. Do you know?

Anyway, so I didn`t see any wildlife, but the view from the top of the mountain was nice. As you can see, the side facing the sea is very steep, so although I wanted to explore the beach, I didn`t want to climb down.

Vocabulary:
- HIKE UP a mountain: walking on a path, not using hands
- CLIMB a mountain: very steep, using hands, maybe special equipment e.g. carabiners, ropes, etc.
- 岐阜の金華山での「ハイキング」は『hike up』を使った方がいい

Rowboats to Rent? Or to Borrow...?

thread
Rowboats to Rent? Or to Borro...
In this picture of Wakamiya Beach you can see a row (列) of row (コグ) boats on the right. I guess you can rent them during the summer. But how about late autumn? I didn`t see anybody around to ask. Maybe I could just quietly borrow one for a little while and nobody would mind... Haha, but not this time. As you can see by the length of my shadow (影), it was getting late, so after taking this photo, I headed back to the campsite.

Vocabulary
- rent = 借りる (+ pay money)
- borrow = 借りる (free)
- Be careful: rental: 形容詞. rent/rented: 動詞

Still Violinin`

Still Violinin`
At the other end of the beach where I camped, there`s a nice park with a unique view. I took this photo there, then I noticed a sound... someone was playing a violin... playing a violin badly... Haha - I think it was the same guy I heard when I came here last year: https://jp.bloguru.com/otto/posts/2019/11/15 I`m glad he hasn`t given up. It must be a hobby that he really likes. Or his music teacher is very strict (厳しい )?

Grammar

- ____の人 = [person] who/that ___

Wakasa-Wada Camping

thread
Wakasa-Wada Camping
Last week I went camping in Fukui. I arrived in Wakasa-Wada around midday, set up my tent, then went beachcombing. My main target was fishing floats. As you can see, I managed to (= tried & could) find several, so I was satisfied. I was also pleased with the weather - mainly sunny, with some clouds. Another good point was that the campsite was almost empty - in Japan, people mainly camp in summer only.

Grammar:
- Be careful: 'main' is 形容詞, 'mainly' is 副詞, so 'My main purpose...' OK, but 'The mainly reason...' WRONG

Restored & Customized Mitsubishi Delica

thread
Restored & Customized Mitsubi...
I saw this cool old Delica at Hashima Costco. I actually used to own a Delica like this (in Australia), but eventually it got rusty & needed a lot of repairs, which would have cost a lot of money to fix, so I got rid of it. When I saw this one at Costco, though, I thought, "Hmmm, maybe I should have kept mine & restored it..." I could have put a tyre on the front too... Why? Hey, why not!

Grammar:
- would have + 過去分詞 = ~だっただろう
- should have + 過去分詞 = ~をすればよかった
- could have + 過去分詞 = ~することができたのに
