We decided to drive to the park
to go for a looooooong walk. 

At the park is a beautiful rose garden with many bushes, different varieties, etc. 
Hiding on one of the petals was a small, green frog ! 
Wonderful. 


Very special, methinks. 





Chikako found a nest full of baby swallows.



There was a High School Archery Competition being held
in the park, too. 



Security Officer keeping everything under control........ 




LOL.... wonderful ! 

Tombo - Dragonfly, fluttering his wings. 
He just wouldn`t stay still. 



A fast-flowing stream which runs through the park. 
Water was so cool on such a humid day. 


Demi-chan patiently waiting in the car park. 

After walking we decided to go for lunch at an 
Okonomiaki Shop - Hiroshima Style, of course. 





Luncheon is served ......looked great. 
Tasted great, too. 




We scored a banana each as a parting gift. 
A great lunch experience; we`ll be back.

50 years ago today we moved into The Gap. 


Today in This City we had lunch by the river. 


The beautiful flowers danced in the breeze, 
as if they were welcoming us into their domain. 






Although it was a hot and humid day, with a little rain, 
we enjoyed the outdoors experience.

The week

Monday Daytime

08th July, 2013

Chikako had Monday morning off. 
It was humid and rainy; we drove to have lunch
before she had to go to work. 



Impressive display ! 

Sizzle plates of hamburg and chicken. 

So so .... not special.

Thursday Evening
11th July, 2013
This City. 

Chikako wanted to go out after I finished work. 
We decided to try a new izakaya which had recently
been opened where used to be a hair salon. 

We were surprised, particularly me, about how radical
the changes which have made were. 




So delicious ! 
Japanese food is the best ...... 



My favourite. 

Computer ordering from the table made things
very simple, indeed. 

All-in-all, it was great.
