I didn’t intend to take such a long break, but it was needed. I took these pictures during our time away during Golden Week. A new walking path was built along the river near my in-laws house. Every morning, I went for a long walk. I can’t describe how refreshing this was to my body and soul!
I love to watch the process of growing rice. I miss that living in the big city. One field has been planted and the greenish looking field with the small speck of a man in it has been flooded and planted.
I love when the fields are first flooded. You can’t see it in this picture, because it was windy and the water was rippling, but normally there is a reflection of the mountains in the water.
