The Japan Sea at Sunset from Chirihama Beach, Ishikawa, Japan

Yesterday we drove out of Kanazawa to Chirihama Beach where vehicles are allowed on the sand. We arrived an hour before sunset and enjoyed a picnic: yakitori, pumpkin salad, potato and sausage salad, apple and celery salad and onigiri (rice balls). Alcohol is permitted in public places so we drank the sake which had been blessed by Hime shrine (except for our driver as the blood alcohol tolerance for drivers is zero percent).
