What a relief after a cold, windy and snowy week:
The weather looked promising for the day.
So we loaded our backpacks and jumped on board the 7 AM
Itoshima Express, heading for Fukuyoshi station.
From there to follow the trail Up and Down 4 Peaks.
Blue blue sky and Plum Blossom.
Peak # 2.
All smiles at the Sunny Side of the Hill.
(yep, we did see the odd snow pocket in shady corners)
It's not only Climb and Run.
Somehow this small lunch popped out of our backpacks.
...of course there were complains about the forgotten bottle of wine.
On Top of the World at the last peak of the day.
Itoshima down there.
8 hours later we were back at sea-level.
Yeap, these are edible.
A very popular veggie, of course one reason is:
Spring is Here!
Right now we see dolls like these All over Town.
Soon it's Hina Matsuri, aka Girls Festival.
For sure that calendar day starts Spring.
