Saturday at the Seashore: Loving Kandachime

On Saturday afternoon Yuko wanted to go to the seashore and I wanted to spend time with friendly animals that I could pretend were my pets, so we went to Cape Shiriya (Shiriyazaki).

Shiriya's "wild" horses known as kandachime ("Horses Standing in Frost") are sure to disappoint those seeking spirited mustangs of the wild west variety.
