  2. 竜ヶ崎からの飛行探索,絶好のお天気日和で、気分爽快ですね!!霞ヶ浦周辺はまだ稲刈りが終わっていませんね。茨城県に30年ほど住んでいました。土浦から北に30キロの水戸市です。霞が浦には家族でよく魚釣りに行きました。最近は環境汚染された霞ヶ浦の水もきれいになっていると聞いています。あの頃は水陸両用の観光バスはなかったと思います。愉快そう。乗りたかったです!土浦市頑張ってるな~と思いました。

      こんばんは。 茨城県に長く住んでいらっしゃったのですか。 この水陸両用バスは日本での第一号だそうです。 湖に入ると、運転手から、船長に交代しました。愉快だけど乗っていると乗り換えが要らないだけでした。 土浦市頑張れですね。

  7. 先日訪れた霞ヶ浦。 私達は船に乗るのがイベントのひとつでした。 
    残念ながら空は飛ぶ勇気は全くありません。 (◎-◎;) 凄いですね !! 
    空から見ると畑は幾何学模様なんですね。

      こんばんは。 土浦にいらっしゃったのですか。 バスのガイドさんの説明が面白かったです。この幾何学模様は、田圃アートの名残かも知れません。

  12. 上空から見た田んぼはきれいですね。コメ作りがアートになっています。セスナは乗ったことがありません。やや高所恐怖症気味ですが、カメラを持つと勇気がでて撮影中は忘れるかもしれません。

      こんばんは。2週間前まで、田圃アートが有ったそうです。そうですね。カメラを持ったらなにもかも忘れますね。

  14. 水陸両用バスは、前にブダペストで見た事がありますが、日本にもあったのですね。カラフルで目立ちますね。セスナでの飛行、おもしろそうです。田圃アート、空から見るときれいだったでしょうね。霞ヶ浦あたりは行った事ないですが、広クて、気持ちのよさそうな所ですね。
    Have a nice day!

      こんばんは。このバスは日本に8台あるそうです。私たちが乗ったのは、その第1号です。霞ヶ浦は日本で第2位の広さです。 景色が単調なのが残念です。

      こんばんは。お褒めいただきありがとうござます。 2週間前には田圃アートが有ったそうです。 水陸両用バスは、湖に入る時と出る時が、操縦が大変だそうです。 運転手と船長と2人でこのバスを動かしました。
