It was my last day of my American job pre-Japan.
I made a loaf of bread in my bread machine (I miss that thing).
It was one of my school festivals - but I don't know which one!
It was umi-no-hi (Day of the sea)
I posted this picture of archery with fun friends
It was my last overnight visit to Rebun Island. This was the glow-in-the-dark dolphin wall at Pension Uni
I do miss commuting to work by ferry!
And last year, I was just kicking off my Hokkaido tour by spending the day in cool Odori Park. I read, relaxed, and ate corn on the cob. It was so good to escape the heat of Nagoya!
This July 16th was also a great day! Harry, Mae, and I went to Yokohama's Sparkling Twilight fireworks festival. It was Harry's first Japanese fireworks festival, which was pretty exciting!
Long time readers of this blog may remember that I am - ahem - not skilled at photographing fireworks. This time, I was armed with my new camera and ready to practice!
What is this?? Nope.
Err...maybe? I like the big splat! Not very fireworksy, though.
Afterwards, we had a wander around Chinatown. I bought a tote bag with a map of Yokohama. Maps come in handy, you know.
