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. 


deeper than down ........ 

A crisp Autumnal afternoon jaunt beside the lake -  fun. 


And for dinner, we stopped by a local shop 

Chef is hot 'n sweaty. 

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