Gorgeous day at the swan park

Today is unbelievably beautiful! It was snowing just a few short days ago, but on this November 7th, the sky is a clear bright blue and temperatures have almost hit the 70's! It's completely energizing, so we had to get out and enjoy it, seeing as we probably won't see another day like this for the next 4 or 5 months. We decided to have a picnic lunch at the nearby Swan Park in Oirase (so named because its lakes are home to hundreds of swans during the winter, or so I've heard- there were only 4 around today).

We ate on the grass surrounded by falling leaves, watching ducks swimming in the lake and listening to kids running around on the playground. Afterwards we walked around the park, just enjoying the weather. It was a perfect, relaxing, refreshing day!
