Images from Fukuoka old town

Spent today getting my provisioning and last minute shopping organized. went downtown to see some of the old town. visited a famous shrine – Kushida – where an annual festival involves men carrying this massive creation for lack of a better word – something that dates back to ancient days when it was done to avoid the plague visiting.

    Good to hear from you Greg, I am renting an old arctic raider- will hope to be on the water today – or Friday latest. looks to be a fascinating coastline- so far so good.
