Happy National Coffee Day!

What’s better than a good cup of coffee? A good cup of coffee on the beach, of course!
Several years ago, Elisa and I enjoyed a cup of Joe on the beach in Kamakura-shi, Japan. Although Kamakura is best known as being the home of the famous Daibutsu (“Great Buddha”) at the Kōtoku-in Temple, there is plenty to love about this beautiful city. Although I’ve already told you about our Kamakura beach adventures, here is a part of the story I had yet to mention: the plums we bought and brought down to the beach were stolen by some very scary, large black birds. Their beaks were big enough to grab a whole plum and fly away with it. Since that was the case, we decided it would be safest not to argue and let them have our plums.
So, word to the wise, giant black beach birds don’t try to steal coffee. Stick with coffee!
