Friends came to Seagrove.

In 2003, we lived in VA. We saw many good people and became good friends. We have been keep in touch with them even we went back to Japan. Since we started living in Seagrove in 2005. we sometimes visit VA and meet friends of ours again. It is not far from here to VA just, 3.5 hours. Anyway, we finally settle down our life here and could invite our good friends to here. It is very glad for us to do that. Randy-san and Cricket-san, and Mark-san came down to our house as a first guest 3 weeks ago, and Randy-san, Scott-san and Racheal-san came here as a second guest last weekend. We took them a pottery tour in Seagrove, and had a good time.
