I spent most of my years growing up in land locked Edmonton, Alberta with he closest beach being quite a drive away from the city. That being said Canada isn’t exactly known for it’s favorable weather for enjoying such experiences. These days I live about a 35-40 minute train ride from the Shonan coast. I’ve come to greatly appreciate this. There is a lot to be said for coming out here with a beer and sitting along the coast watching the sun set over Mt. Fuji. So much so that this is exactly how I spent the last day of 2013.
