なにもある(徒歩日本縦断#95)

95日目の今日は道の駅ソレーネ周南で起床

この道の駅がなかなか曲者で、横石も初めて出会ったのだがまさかの24時間営業の道の駅

軒下はたくさんあるくせに道の駅が営業してるから寝にくい寝にくい。

どうしたものかと考えながら寝床を探すため道の駅周辺をうろちょろしていた結果、

道の駅すぐ隣の芝生広場のようなところに使われていないゴミ置場なのか物置なのかわからない駐輪場があったためそこにひっそりテントを張ることに。

床にはゴキの赤ちゃんがたくさんいたが、そんなこと気にしてられるかい!共存共栄が大事。

まぁそんなこんなでどうにか確保した寝場所だったが、端っこの芝生広場ということもあって人一人来ないでゆっくり寝れた。風は強かったがまだ許容範囲の風で睡眠には支障なく、強いが故に霜も降りず、前日よりは幾分マシな睡眠をとって起床。

そしてこの道の駅には中国地方のご当地コンビニ「ポプラ」が隣接されているので

名物ポプ弁を朝ごはんに食べる

ポプ弁のなにが名物かというと、ご飯を店で炊いていて、量を選んで入れてもらえるのだ。しかも特盛はプラス50円にはなるが450グラムという大満足の量。

ということで横石も溢れんばかりにご飯を注いでもらってがっつり朝飯を食べる。

と同時に胃がびっくりしたのか抑えきれない便意を催ししばらく格闘。

結局朝8時に出発となったが、今日は山口市の道の駅までの36キロと短めなのでこれでも余裕を持って歩き出した

そんな今日の道のり

道の駅を出てすぐに小さな峠を越えらため山道へ

3キロほど歩いて峠を越えて海が見えてきたら富海という防府市の町に入る

しあわせ”ます”

防府に入ってからは国道2号のバイパスを3キロほど歩いて、市街へと国道を逸れていく

そして気づけば北九州まであと100キロを切っていた。なんとまぁ一歩一歩は果てしないけど積み重ねたら北海道からここまで来れるのだから少し感慨深いものだ。推定歩数は横石の歩幅で計算すると現在約480万歩らしい。もうようわからんけど480万歩歩けば北海道から四国も回ってここまで来れるって考えると簡単な気もするのがまたすごい。

防府市街は青春18切符旅でもネカフェに泊まりにきてるけど、ちゃんと都会。ここから10キロほどは防府市街を横断して

橋を渡ると国道2号に戻ってくる

ここから今日の目的地までは残り18キロほど。ひたすらのどかな道が続くので少し広い歩道の横に座って休憩

なんだろう。今ちょうど秋と冬の境目だと思うんだけど、田舎の冬はなんかスカッとする

草が枯れてきて辺り一面を見渡せるからかな?

遠く続く道をぼやっとみながら座り込んでいるとスピッツを聴きたくなった。あの爽やかな曲調とこの風景がよく合うんだわぁ。

そしてまたも国道二号を逸れて残り15キロはさらにのどかな横道へ

線路は続くよどこまでも

そしてその細道で山口市に入る(いうて市街はもっと内陸です)

そんな道中で、本当に突然現れたゲームの村の長老みたいなおばあちゃんに声をかけられる

「あんた〒¥35¥3#¥€+*かい?」

みたいな感じで半分何言ってるのかわからないくらいのおばあちゃんだったけど、なぜかその言動から耳が離せない。本当になぜかわからないけど「妙に説得力あるなぁこの人…」みたいな人いるじゃん?あんな感じ

唯一聞き取れた言葉が

「ガシガシしすぎなさんな」

え?ガシガシ?

と思って聞き返したら

「急ぎすぎるなよぉ〜まだ若いんだから」

ってことらしい。

なんだろう、全て見透かされてる気がしてハッとした。

うまくは言えないんだけど、諭された気がした

確かに少し急いでいる雰囲気を出して、そういう目をしていたのかもしれない。

ひたすら進むのがなによりの好物の横石だけど、たまにはゆっくりいくのも悪くないんかな

そう思ってそのおばあさんと別れたあと、すぐに防波堤に出て座ってみた

ゆっくり座って、打ち寄せる波の音に身を預けてみる

潮風は心地よく身体を包み込んで、随分と遠くまで歩いて来たことを改めて実感する

時間は歩いてる時の数倍ゆっくり流れて、これもまた大切な旅だということを教えてくれる

進むだけが旅じゃない。そういうことでしょおばあちゃん。教えてくれてありがとうね。

そのあとはいつもより本当にゆっくり、のどかな山口を満喫した。

山口の瀬戸内海沿いは何もないとよく言われるし、横石も何もないと思っていたが、ゆっくり見てみて思う。

「何もない」が「ちゃんとあった」

打ち捨てられた野原に、自転車の轍をつけるように
あなたはわたしの見ることの出来ない未来を行くんだな
たとえばあなたが伝説の、孤独に旅する猿として
あなたが行くのはそのような
圧倒的な原野だろう

日だまりを行くといい、愛することに出会うといい
あたりまえの営みを、どうかあなたは続けてね
行きたいところに行けるように、なりたい者にもなれるように
できればわたしも滅ばずに、あなたの未来のそばにいたい
まだノースリーブ

そして久しぶりにバイクで日本を回ってる旅人さんに会う。こんな僻地でよくもまぁ偶然出会うものだ。夏こそよく旅人はいるが、この時期にしかも山口でなんてそうは会わない

そしてそのあとは

日が傾きかけた周防大橋を渡り

四時過ぎに目的地の道の駅へ

広い東屋もあるし、気温も高い。久しぶりにゆっくり寝れそうだ。

そしてなにより今日はあの村長のおかげでいい日になったなぁ…

ご褒美に一本だけ飲んでテントに入る

明日はいよいよ下関へ。九州が目前に迫っている。

I am very comfortable that I stumbled across this in my seek for one thing regarding this.
