Kamome-jima in Esashi Town !


by Kazu

Can you find the rock standing on the beach ? That is called "Heishi Iwa" and the shape is a bottle upside down. Small octopuses and crabs are around the rock.
Once in a while, I found a dead body of a baby dolphin drifting around the rock after a storm. The body was so damaged. Do you know that male bottle-nose dolphins sometimes kill colts of other male dolphin ?  
I was not sure the reason the baby dolphin died of but I was a little bit sad to see the body. Shall we go up to the peak and the backside of the island ?
