More on the above later.
The day dawned rainy and stormy. To be honest, I love thunder, so I didn't mind much. I started off with cinnamon coffee on the porch.
We lingered over breakfast (brunch?¥ and then decided to check out an area we'd both been wanting to see - Kakuozan.
When we arrived, there was a small street market going on...
We also had amazing strawberry shaved ice. It had real strawberries and condensed milk. Mmmmmm. But, it did not photograph well.
We wandered around and found a cool garden.
The summer green was actually pretty with the garden.
Saw a certain plant and thought of you, Mom!
Also saw some cute turtles.
We got back on the subway after that. I meant to get off at Imaike, but I missed my stop. So I rode until my friend got off, and then just decided I would ride the line to the end. Some of the subways rise out of the earth at the end. This line did not.

I rode twenty minutes back, and missed my stop again. Ugh!
I got off one stop past mine and decided to just walk back to Imaike. Easy Peasy.
Excuse me, why does that subway say Kakuozan? I was walking in the opposite direction...right?
Nope! Came full circle!
Finally made it home and decided to pop over to my cafe for a quick cup of tea and maybe something to eat.
