I was going to take the bus down to Noshappu, but I saw something that looked pretty, so I hopped off at Wakkanai Junior High instead and walked down to the sea. The curve of the hills on the other side of the bay (?) looked like something out of a dream. I tried to take a picture, but the picture does not do justice to what it looked like in real life.
As I was walking along the coast, I realized that all this snow kind of made the shore look like
Pensacola. A cold, cold Pensacola, but whatever! ;-). The photo looks cold to me because I was there, but maybe if you
haven't stood there, it won't look so cold and you can pretend like it's Pensacola.
Then, it got creepily dark over the water, even though the
sun was shining where I was standing (as evidenced by the shadow of what I think is my head in the shot).
I learned an important lesson about the snow...well, I knew it, but application is difficult. When
you are out in the snow, not everything covered in white is a sidewalk.
Well, I'm off to a school festival! See you later!
