29th April, 2015
It is a National Holiday in Japan today.
And the start of Golden Week for some people, but alas, not me.
We went on our second Walking Challenge.
Many many people !
Signing In for the Walking Challenge.
Chikako san and Mr. Suzuki were walking beside the Abukuma River.
Unique and well-done.
A school band lining up to perform.
Taiko drummers taking a bow.
A small plane towing a glider ever-higher ........
Mr. Amazing, the volunteer.
He was here, there, everywhere !
Refreshments and a small gift of a Spring flower.
Back at the station.
They drank free beer whilst I drank cold tea.
My New Year's Resolution still stands - One Year, No Beer.
We enjoyed lunch - five people.
I enjoyed one glass of German wine; very nice however after
walking 11 kms, eating a big lunch and being out in the bright sunshine
the glass of wine made me feel very tired, indeed.
My lunch - left.
