We went to Denny's for a very late lunch / early dinner type meal. 
Lunch itself was okay, however we did also enjoy dessert there. 











I enjoyed a calorific peach parfait style of dessert. 


Chikako san enjoyed a more traditional type of Japanese dessert.

Sunday Afternoon

19th July, 2015

We slowly drove from This City to That City
stopping in @ Komeri along the way. 



A little Japanese sweet treat to begin the journey ! 
Soooooooo delicious. 

Then a quick stop-in @ Komeri @ Adachi
to get some gardening supplies for my balcony garden. 
This is definitely my favourite shop ! 


Then we attended a small belated birthday dinner
for Yukie @ an Indian Restaurant. 



We have been there many times before, and this time was equally good. 



Alcohol-free beer. 



Will you bring us Good Luck ??

 






Sizzle plate spicy chicken. 


We got three different types of curry to enjoy...... 





Happy Birthday, Yukie !

Monday Lunchtime
13th July, 2015. 

Chikako san and I went to our favourite noodle bar
for lunch. 
It is Summertime now and it is very hot here, 
however I still enjoyed eating hot noodles. 
Chikako san chose to eat cold noodles. 

Both were delicious. 


Chikako san's luncheon. 

Alcohol-free beer. 


Me set course. 


As we are regular customers, we received SERVICE, or free dumplings. 
Compliments of the wonderful chef. 

Always a great place for lunch, we think.

Walking Group

Sunday
 5 July, 2015 

We joined our Walking Group for Walk #4 this year. 
Even though today is my birthday, I particularly wanted 
to join the Walking Group. 










Check in time. 





It began to warm up a tad, plus the humidity rose. 
All-in-all though the weather for July wasn't overly hot. 




Free rice ball to re-energize ! 



The toddler girl gave me the cutest smile as she passed by ........ 
Enjoy your day, Princess. 







Up, up and away we go. 
Exciting. 




At the summit ...... 





Amazing colours. 



Toro. 








What a beautiful garden ! 
Just to wander through it was calming....... 

 Looking upwards as we traveled downwards. 


 As we walked back to the train station I saw this hibiscus
in somebody's garden.  Wow ! 


------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After we returned to This City on the local train
Chikako san took me to a local cafe for an early dinner. 













Yum yum .... 



With a delicious dessert  a la Birthday Cake ! 
Japanese sweets taste soooooooo good. 

What a wonderful day together.
