Thanks to an early morning call from Nuala, I was more active than I usually am on a Saturday. You see, Nuala was calling to invite me along for a beach stroll from Kamakura to Enoshima with her, the Lauras, Kevin and Paul. Despite the modest hangover and lack of quality time sitting on my couch recently, I was easily convinced.

And with good reason, because it was an excellent day.

We walked along the beach from Kamakura to Enoshima. That is about 7 kilometres, but the weather was excellent, so it was very nice. It was also good to be reminded how close Shonan is, especially with summer almost here!

We walked the first leg from Kamakura to Inamuragasaki Park (follow this link for a description of some of the local beaches), where we stopped for a glass of bubbly to celebrate Laura's birthday.

It was unbelievable warm and lots of people were there to enjoy the good weather and views of Mt. Fuji (!). Unfortunately, it did not come out so well in the pictures - in person, it really was awe-inspiring. It is rare to get a clear view of Mt. Fuji, when you do it is always a suprise at how big it is.

After that, we went across the street to the Sundish restaurant for lunch. Coming down from the park, it seemed too good to be true: outdoor seating on a sunny day at the beach - especially because this stretch of coastline is impossibly crowded in summer.

Well, it was too good to be true. The wind was much stronger there and it clouded up a little - instead of a balmy 20 degrees it seemed more like 10 degrees (or less?). We bundled up, finished our lunch and moved on. This could be a good spot for afternoon drinks in the summer, but it was still too early in the season yesterday.

After walking farther down the beach (and past the fishing village), we eventually ended up at Enoshima (Omiyage Island), where we spent an hour poking around. It is a nice place to go, but it seemed a bit over-the-top...then again, we were all fairly tired by that point.
