Happy Showa no hi! It’s also a good friend’s birthday. Three of us met at a local coffee shop this morning to celebrate. We got the shop’s morning set:
Boiled eggs and giant toast!
We all wandered around town for a while after eating our giant toast and drinking coffee. Eventually, we all went our separate ways.
I kept on going, and headed up, up, up to the 100 year memorial tower. The winds were so strong! Hiking up a hill into strong winds is not easy!
I eventually made my way to the top and found this nice little spot for sitting.
After a while, I moved to sit behind a hill. There was a teeny bit more shelter from the wind there, and I sat and read for a while. Eventually, my hands were frozen, so I made my way back down, down, down.
On the way, I saw ferries heading out to the islands.
I also saw a whole bunch of deer grazing.
It was a beautiful day to be outside!
