Even if we've not been "declared" to be in rainy season by the weather dude, I swear we are.
Yesterday, it was so humid and then we had a thunder AND lightning show plus a huge downpour TWICE!
I even saw a bolt of lightning above the condo across of ours...I'm glad I got my walk and grocery shopping in before all the excitement happened.
I guess I should be thankful, there were other areas of Japan that had hail?!
Anyway...on one of my walks last week, it was drizzling but the azaleas were in full bloom and very pretty.
Then on another walk, I walked along the Ookawa towards Nakanoshima.
I noticed this winding ramp.
It turns out this ramp is great for bicycles & wheelchairs to get on and off Nakanoshima.
As I was making my way down the winding ramp, I noticed this boat with 1 passenger and a driver.
The guy riding was filming something.
This was the bridge from the underneath.
A little further down was the Nakanoshima rose garden.
We've gone here in the past and enjoyed the roses.
This year I went a little late so the roses seem to have been past their prime. Also, it was so hot on this day that most of the flowers looked limp.
I loved the names of these roses...Gina Lollobrigida.
And this one was Yellow Queen Elizabeth.
What have you been seeing on your walks?
