秘密の隠れ家(徒歩日本縦断87)

87日目の今日は東かがわ市の旅人の隠れ家金魚ハウスで起床

まるでライダーハウスのような空間。たしかに「隠れ家」というだけあって本当に落ち着く空間である

金魚ハウスの中嶋さんは「オランダ獅子頭」という金魚の第一人者であり、金魚以外にも、メダカや鳥、犬にハリネズミやハムスターなど沢山の生き物を可愛がっている。動物たちにとっても隠れ家で、生き物大好きな横石からするとたまらない空間だ

そんな今日は朝7時に起きてから、久しぶりにのんびり過ごして8時過ぎからは動物たちのお世話を見学する。

本当に愉快な家だ

「グワっ」と音がすると思って下を見ればなぜかアヒルが覗いているし(飼えなくなったものを引き取っているらしい)

隠れ家の中には綺麗な鳥たちが所狭しと並んで鳴いているし

様々な種類の金魚や

品種改良されてラメのようにキラキラしたメダカまで、本当に普段の生活では知らないような世界が広がっている。

本当に何か一つを極めている人の話は、なにを話していても面白いから不思議だ。

金魚の話だって普通は「何色のなんて種類」くらいで終わりだが、一つの種類の中にも、尾びれの左右対称さや、模様の綺麗さ、大きさや筋肉のつき方まで、「そんなとこまで見る?!」というくらいにこだわっているし、その全てにちゃんとした育て方があるらしく、本当に「なるほどそうやればこう育つのか」「こういう餌を配合しているのか」と思わず感心してしまうくらいに奥が深いのだ。

そんなことを聞きながら、近くの地元民が絶賛するうどん屋さんの開店に合わせて朝ごはんはうどん屋に行く

うどん屋のうどん屋だ(紛らわしいけどうどん屋って名前のうどん屋なのだ)

ぶっかけうどんと三個で100円という驚異のコスパの天ぷらを朝ごはんに頂いたが、これがまた美味い。甘めの汁と、コシがあるのに柔らかめの絶妙なうどんが噛み合って美味い美味い。

さすが地元民が絶賛するうどん屋なだけある。朝ごはんなのにうどん2玉と天ぷらをペロッと完食してしまった笑

そして帰ってからお昼までは今日ホームセンターに金魚やメダカ、コイを引き渡す日だということでそのお手伝いをすることに(といってもビニールの入れ物に水入れたり持ち運んだりするだけ)

正直、ペットショップに売り出すブリーダー的な人は本来もっと商売っ気を出して、売ること最優先で考えていると思っていたが、中嶋さんはあくまでも「生き物が大好き」という姿勢で様々な生き物を育てているので「なるべく死なさずに、大切に送り出す」ということを実践していて、「あぁ、こんな人もいるんだなぁ」と素直に尊敬してしまった。

そんな中嶋さんの人柄からなのか、今現在香川県で2番目ほどに納税額のある東かがわ市のふるさと納税の返礼品の中にも中嶋さんが丹精込めて育て上げた自慢のオランダ獅子頭が含まれているそうなので、是非少しでも興味がある方はそのサイトを覗いていただきたい。

これは別に横石が東かがわ市の回し者というわけでも、中嶋さんに頼まれたわけでもなく、ただ本当に金魚に情熱を注ぐ中嶋さんへの尊敬から、そしてそんな金魚がもっと知られて欲しいのでブログに書いているだけである。

そして作業が終わってからは昼ごはんを食べにまたもやうどん屋のうどん屋へ

今回は肉ぶっかけうどん。しかもまたもや大と天ぷら三個だ。

甘い肉とおろしがよく合う。

つい2時間前に2玉食べたばかりなのにまたもや2玉ぺろっと完食してしまった。

流石にお腹いっぱいだ。こんなにお腹いっぱいになるなんて幸せでしかない。

しかもこのうどん屋のうどん屋はうどん屋のくせにうどん屋らしからぬロケーションに位置するうどん屋なのだ。

瀬戸内海を一望する海沿いに面していて、寒くなければオーシャンビューのテラス席のような場所まである。かつコスパ良く美味しい讃岐うどんが食べられるので本当に教えていただいて得した気分だ。

そしてお昼ご飯を済ませた後は高松のホームセンターまで引き渡し作業に行く

高松には14時半ごろ着いて、引き渡し作業をお手伝いしたあとは1日本当にお世話になった中嶋さんとお別れをすることに。

美味しいご飯や温泉や楽しいお話までしていただいた金魚ハウスの中嶋さん。本当にありがとうございました!!

もし東かがわ市を訪れる機会のある旅人がいたら是非金魚ハウスさんを訪れてみてほしい

興味のある方はこのツイッターで「横石のブログ見て連絡しました」といえば中嶋さんには通じると思うので是非。

そしてこの後は今日の夜から岡山でお世話になる方が高松まで来てくださって、そのまま岡山まで送ってくださることに。

休養日のこの2日間は本当に「ヒッチハイクしとるんか?!」ってくらいご縁があって色んな方にお世話になっている。ていうかヒッチハイク以上にお世話になりまくっている。本当にありがとうございます!

そしてこの方の運転する車に乗って、いよいよ長い間旅をした四国ともサヨナラ

夕刻の瀬戸内海を望みながら瀬戸大橋を走っていく

夕暮れ時なのもあり、差し込む夕日の中で四国の色んな思い出が蘇ってきてしまう…

特に「歩く」という行為と向き合って、本気で歩いていた四国だからこそ寂しさもひとしおであるが

みるみるうちに目の前に本州が迫ってきて

いよいよ次の旅の舞台である、本州中国地方に戻ってきた。

そして今日は岡山市郊外にある家にお邪魔させていただくことに

鴨鍋でお腹いっぱいになって、今はブログを書く手が止まるほど眠気が襲っている…笑

みんなで囲う鍋は本当に美味しいなぁやっぱり。今日初めて出会った方の家でご家族の方と鍋を囲むなんて普通の生活じゃ絶対にありえない。本当にありがとうございました!

明日は1日岡山でゆっくりして、計画を練りながらいよいよ明後日からまた歩き始めだ

しばし旅の再開までお待ちください。
