A Perfect Day in Misawa

In contrast to my last post, this one is inspired by the most beautiful weather I've seen all year. Yesterday was GORGEOUS! I even got a little sunburn on my face while we were out and about taking in the sun.

After going out for Indian food (yum!) with friends who just got back from a looong deployment (yay!), we spent a few hours at Swan Park (yippee!). We played bocci ball and frisbee, climbed the tower, explored the park taking pictures, enjoyed the remaining blossoms, and took in some much needed vitamin D.

On the way home we stopped at the Cake House for some ice cream. Some delicious, wonderful ice cream. This place is very dangerous now that I know the deliciousness within.

Crossing my fingers that this nice weather stays around so we can have more great days like this!

OMGosh, I was all prepared to say how beautiful Misawa is this time of year (by your pics), and then I got to that strawberry sundae...and um...nothing is really more beautiful than that. I want. Like, now. The rainy day weather here today is driving me bonkers. I want sunshine and ice cream and strawberries stat! :)

I agree with Stefanie about the ice cream - and I also totally relate to living in a place that has absolutely AWFUL weather, but is so amazingly beautiful on the very very few days a year when it is warm and sunny. Hope all is going well for you guys out there.

I must not be hungry right now, because my favorites are the beautiful shots with the sunshine behind the blossoms. Lovely.
