Sunday the 26th of October, 2014


It was a beautiful Autumnal day and Winter will soon come
so we decided to go hiking together. 






 


Onwards and upwards ! 


Little did we know how steep it really was going to be ....... 







 We ate lunch on a picnic table in the woods. 


 Some amazing lichens. 


 Autumnal hues....... 




Where are we exactly ? 






Oh, I see..... 






Such a sad story, steeped in folklore..... 

A millpond..... 







Very famous in Hokkaido. 





As per usual, DemiChan was waiting patiently.... 

Mirror, mirror...... 









Enroute home I stopped  on the way down to take some more photos. 

 Where's this, then ? 



 Aha !! 
I can see our apartment. 



We hiked. 
We ate. 
We drove. 
We enjoyed.

Where, oh where, 
is a four-leaf clover ? 







Why, here's one ....... not so difficult to find apparently ! 


Let's hope that 
The Luck of the Irish
rubs off, eh ? 



Thank you for waiting, Demi Chan.

Later in the afternoon we met some friends and went walking
beside a small lake. It was our first time there.

A crisp Autumnal afternoon jaunt beside the lake -  fun.

And for dinner, we stopped by a local shop 
for
cook-it-yourself. 












Chef is hot 'n sweaty. 





All-in-all, this Sunday was quite a day.
