I drove us from This City
to That City
to go to Church.
St. Peter and St. Pauls Church of England.
It is a very old and very beautiful old building
which took a direct hit on 3/11.
A wonderful group of choristers and musicians came up from Tokyo
to play and sing today. Wow ! They were wonderful.
Even Bishop Kato from Sendai came down for the Service.
Demi Chan was waiting patiently in the car park
whilst we prayed for World Peace.
After Church we went to a small cafe for lunch.
Chikako san was also waiting .......... patiently ? Impatiently ?
She was hungry.
Iced coffee with sweets for her
iced tea with sweets for me.
It was a nice cafe, very popular and not expensive.
Across from the cafe was this helicopter strapped to the roof of some shop.
I could not quite get the significance of it.
After I drove us back to This City we went to a cemetery to pay respects for a friend of mine who passed away 4 years ago on May 4th, 2010.
She was only 43 years old.
How many steps did we have to climb ?
What a loooooong haul it was........
But the view from there was amazing; building to the right is KEIBA,
or the horse racing track here.
Other big building is Red Cross Hospital.
On the way out we spotted this huge wasp on a tree,
which is below.
Worth a photo.
