Happy Mother's Day!

It's Monday morning here in Japan. Hope you had a nice Mother's Day!

I got a drawing of flowers from my daughter. Can you tell what kinds of flower? They're mix of tulip and carnation. Wow, eh?
And a sweet cake for the dessert! It was such a special day for me! Yum!

We had 8-day -holiday here in Japan called "Golden Week". Nice, eh? We visited Ise area.
Ise is famous for Ise Shrine, very spiritual place for the ancient Japanese. The last time I visited here is back in 1990s during my university time. Gee, time flies.

Anyway, we drove down from Kamakura to Irago Cape to take the ferry. It was the first time for our daughter to hop on a ferry and she was sooooo excited! I took ferry the last time from Spain to Morocco when I was a Senior. It took
55 min. to cross over Ise Bay. Guess what? We came across dolphin's family!! WOW!

Belated ....
