i knew you were there, t!

we stayed over in san diego for another round on saturday.

it was raining since morning.
we didn't see TROY yesterday but we kinda knew 
that he got here all right, with rain, of course.

サンディエゴのスワップミート、2日目は雨でございます。
シアトルの雨男Tがバイクでこちらに向かっていると聞いてから
覚悟はしていたものの、雨に負けて帰るなんてもったいない。 
折角来たんだから見たい、もっと見たい!
ということでカッパ着用で会場を闊歩するとに。

the rain started to get heavy after an hour or so.
shinya and Y-san was hiding from the rain 
in front of the huge camper.

1時間もすると雨がひどくなりだし、ひとまず休憩。
屋根の無いところで雨宿りをする木村氏とグッド山さん。

 finally the rain stopped!
but shinya kept his poncho on :)
mr. falcon was so happy to see the sunshine
so he bought 2 honda c105,
one running and the other for parts.

しばらくすると雨が止み、太陽の光を見て嬉しくなったN美くんが
勢いあまってカブを2台セットでご購入。一台動くのともう一台は不動。
雨が止んでもカッパを来たままの木村氏が早速カブにまたがる。

mr.falcon also got this ford gate, too.
did the sun made him feel high?
i don't know...

雨が止んで気分最高、絶好調のN美くんは
fordのあおりもお買い上げ。笑顔、ステキ。

ice cream!
shinya helped taking honda to the van,
still wearing his poncho.

N美くんのカブをバンまで運ぶ木村氏。
まだカッパ着てます。サカナ売り?


took both hondas to the van and empty the cart,
came back to the site and voila! 
storm of rain hit us.

N美くんのカブをチャボバンに載せ、
満載になったカートの荷物も下して会場に戻ると
豪雨に見舞われる。

despite that, we quite enjoyed it!
really had a great great time.

にも関わらず、笑顔のN美くん。
もともとヴィンテージカーのパーツに強い催しだし、
去年ほどオートバイは見かけなかったけど、
私達は車も大好きだし、何と言ってもガラクタ見つけて
あーだこーだ皆で盛り上がって値段交渉したり・・・
雨だったけど私達にとってはやっぱり最高に楽しいスワップミートでした。

We were walkin around in the rain on saturday too.
Funny cause there was an absence of boxes,
shoulda known you guys were down!

Next year you'll have to stop by,
we're only a couple miles away.
