A Very Rainy Trip to the Lake

Today Chessa and I took a little day trip out to Lake Towada. In the morning when we made the decision to go, the sky was blue and the sun was shining. Twenty minutes after our departure, the complete opposite was the case. It rained harder today than I've seen in a very long time. We decided to keep going and hope the weather was better at the lake. That sort-of worked out for us. It was still pretty rainy, but we found little windows of dryness and were able to get out of the car and walk around a bit. We had lunch in a cute restaurant overlooking the lake and then took the girls out on a swan paddle boat for a rainy ride.

On the drive back we stopped at a few places in Oirase Gorge to look at waterfalls. So pretty! This is always one of the most beautiful places in Northern Japan, and it makes me love living here so much.
