These photos are from a ferry trip to the Izu Penninsula, to the small diving town, Toi, where my friend Rob lives in what amounts to a palace here. It was a damned lovely trip. The Pacific is warmer here and swimming is, well, actually its still cold but better than Washington. In the summer heat it will be perfect. However, you have to watch out for the spider crabs who grow to be as tall as me and will attack bathers in groups of three or four and drag the unsuspecting vicitim out to deeper water where they devour you as your lungs fill with water.
