Thank you for visiting my blog. Yesterday, the total number of visitors reached over 50,000. It was really a perfect birthday present from all of you!

Galveston Island State Park
I visited this island just a few days before the hurricane Ike hitted and destroyed the whole area. I was shocked to see the photos of flooded roads and houses after that, which my host mother sent me. I could't believe them from the sceneries I saw; peacefull and quiet places full of sunshine.

Texas still has big wilderness. One reason for that might be the huge hurricanes.

Smith Point Hawk Watch Tower
A book to enjoy hawk watch was finally published last week, witch has some of my illustrations in it.
Last year, I visited several hawk watch points in Japan for that book and I loved the hawk watch style birdwatching; sitting at the same place and watching the sky. So in Texas. I ask my host mother's birder friend to take me to Smith Point.
