beautiful Kamogawa

The drive from Yachimata to Kamogawa was about two to three hours... or even four, not really sure as I was asleep most of the time. All I remember was when I woke up we were driving through a pretty mountainous city with a really nice coast. I loved it! If only I was told where we were going I shouldn't have slept!!

We pulled off at one time to get a couple of pictures on a road close by the beach and then we got back on the car again. For three years of not being in a beach, this was the best that I could do????

It was only me, my Aunt and my Uncle who went to Kamogawa Seaworld to see some sea creatures. Tickets were courtesy of my Uncle again. I would not have gone if I have to pay it myself since I'm poor as you should all know (costs 28$).

We went to some huge aquariums first and saw some small fishes, big fishes, scary looking fishes, fishes who look like my Aunt, fishes who I want to gobble up my Aunt, gigantic crabs,  lazy fishes who don't swim, and some other sea monsters. The gigantic crabs really scared the sashimi out of me as I didn't think they could be that huge (I was going to write humongous but I'm not sure with the spelling!!). Now I wouldn't want to dive into an ocean or sea anymore, well it's not like I have done it anyway!

And then we watched some dolphin show. The dolphins were a lot of fun and they seemed much smarter than my Aunt. They can probably even spell humongus right. Or Humungous. Whatever! Whale sharks.. oops I mean KILLER WHALES! were on the second show.

The third one was what I enjoyed the most. Sea lions who were trying to be some stand up comedians where on it. They were really funny that I would love to take one home! No, not really. They smelled too fishy.

And then more fishes and sea animals.  Bored looking fishes, huge beluga/white whales, seals, lazy otters, beautiful coral reefs, sharks,  fat turtles and more, more. I'm happy that I've seen these creatures in real life even though it sounds less cool being just in aquariums and pools. But how else am I gonna see them, eh? Dive into the sea?

On our way home we stopped by at 7 Eleven for an ice cream. I love the 7 Eleven stores in Japan and they're everywhere. They have their own bank or some sort called the Seven Bank. I don't know how it works exactly as I am no expert when it comes to money, earning money, saving money and having money. All I know is that they have special ATMs where you can withdraw money and also pay bills? If I have known before that I could use my ATM card there I could've had done more serious damage to whatever's left in my bank. I had a hard time looking for an international ATM in Yachimata that's why my cash was very limited during my stay.

Anyway, I haven't seen in any other country where you could also just buy CDs, IPODs, video games and DVDs in a 7 Eleven store. Have you?
