諸刃の剣(徒歩日本縦断#100)

どうやら今日で100日目だそうだ

宗谷岬のスタートがもう何年も前のような…ずいぶん遠い昔のような気がしてならない。

そんな記念すべき?100日目は糸島の海岸沿いにあるパーキングで起床

うん。寒い。海沿いだし風が強くて余計に寒い

3時頃から目が覚めては寝てを繰り返して、6時半にサーファー達が続々と海に集結する音で完全に目が覚めた。

いやいやサーファー達よ。この寒さで海に繰り出すのかい?ずいぶんと色んな人たちに変態と呼ばれてきた横石だが、あなたたちも変態だなぁ…なんて思いながら、テントを急いで片付ける

どうやらここはサーファー達の生地となっているようで、テントを片付けて駐車場を見ると既に10台以上の車が停まっていた

現在午前7時。本来なら歩き出している時間だが、今日は28キロしか歩かない予定だし、なにより目の前に広がる玄界灘が朝焼けから段々と青く爽やかに色づいていくのがやけに綺麗で、ぼやーっと眺めていた。写真を撮るのも億劫になるほどに綺麗で…

そういえば夜に見た星空もやけに綺麗だった

普段見える星々のさらに奥の空間に無数の星が輝いていて、宇宙が手に届きそうな奥行きで目の前に迫ってきて、そんな夜空を見てたら吸い込まれそうに足元がふわふわしてきて、少し怖くなって急いでテントに戻ったんだっけ。

あぁ、不思議だ。

「綺麗だ」と思うものほど時に怖さを感じる。まるで研ぎ澄まされた刃のように

人も、風景も、言葉も…

そんなことを考えながら、朝焼けの海が完全に青に変わった9時前に出発。

海沿いを歩いて5キロもしないうちに次の佐賀県に入る。九州2県目は青い海とともにお出迎えだ

100日ひたすら歩いてきて、スタートはオホーツクと日本海交わる最北の海。そこから新潟まで日本海を歩きアルプスを越えて太平洋側へ抜け、更に瀬戸内海を通り四国を回り、いよいよ九州の玄関である玄界灘を横目に今歩いている

この実感がなによりの足を動かすエネルギーになるんだ。「自分の足でこんなに海を越えてきたんだ」とその実感こそが足を前に出す揺るぎない原動力になる。

「自転車日本一周」とか「徒歩日本縦断」とかの響きは確かにいいけど、本質的にはそれは表向きの言葉であり、看板でしかない。横石はいつだって「自分の足で」「どこまでも進んでいきたい」その欲求さえ満たせれば、もはやそんな看板も言葉もいらないような旅をしていきたいと、この玄界灘を見て改めて思う。そしてこれから先も想い続ける限り、いくつになっても旅に終わりはないのだと。

そして唐津といえば虹の松原

この松並木のなんとも言えない甘い匂いの中でのんびり歩くのが気持ちいい

木陰でゆらゆら揺れる太陽がたまに眩しく、手庇で空を見上げると冬でも力強い緑がそこにはあった

そんな松原を抜けてスタートから10キロ

朝ごはんをチロルチョコでしのいでいたし、時刻も11時だったので久しぶりにすき家でがっつり食べた。やはり旅中の牛丼は最高である。これだけは揺るぎない真実だ

ここから残り18キロは内陸に入ってのどかな田舎道を進む

そして次の街伊万里へ

伊万里焼きで有名な伊万里だが、横石にとってはそろそろ馴染みのある風景と方言だ。大好きな佐世保の家はもう近いのだ。

ちなみにまだ昼はノースリーブ。

これは別に意地はってるわけでもなく、単純に晴れてる日は暑くなるのだ。15度を越えたらノースリーブでも全然いける。あだ名が短パン小僧になる日は目前かな。

そして伊万里はキロポストが

伊万里焼きの絵柄なのがたまらなく素敵だ

1キロごとに絵柄も違って、ついつい立ち止まって眺めてしまうし1キロ進むのが楽しみになる

日本中のキロポストをこうやってご当地のもので遊び心を込めて作ったら旅人どころか地域の人も楽しめるんだろうなぁ…

そして今日は終始のんびり歩いて

午後四時に道の駅伊万里へ到着

今日はここで野宿だ。

やっぱ道の駅は安心できるなぁ。綺麗なトイレはあるし、店員さんとか地元の人も旅人に慣れてるからなぁ。寝かせていただける感謝を忘れずに今日もおやすみなさい。

歩行距離 28キロ

福岡県糸島市→佐賀県伊万里市

総歩行距離 3509キロ
