Capibaras were bathing at Izu Shaboten park. シャボテン公園でカピバラの入浴を見る。



Ito city (Shizuoka) is home town of my father.
My father has stayed at hospital for alzheimer
disease.  As he was diagnosed as terminal
stage, he can't walk nor speak.

I went to Izu Shaboten park (near from Ito)
as I wanted to show pictures of the park ner
his hometown.  Capibaras were very cute.
 Pelicans were waiting for food.

伊豆シャボテン公園にでかけたのは、病院に
寝たきりの父に故郷伊東の写真を撮って
見せたかったからです。

父は、末期のアルツハイマー病で入院中なので
ベッドで寝たきりでほとんどしゃべりません。でも
伊東駅や大室山の写真を見たらどこだかわかった
ようです。
Macaws were noisy
カピバラの隣のコンゴウインコは、うるさかったです。
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Peacock was spreading wings.  求愛の季節なので、園内では、孔雀が
羽を広げているのを良く見ました。
