Daily Life in Spring

flowers

May 12, 2021. Days come and go. Spring time is really here. Covid is still present even though contained... but out of precaution, we do not go out much anymore. Life is just what is happening all around us day in and day out. Some days are sunny, some days are rainy, some days are windy... we appreciate our balcony... the weather is very comfortable, not cold at all, and we enjoy the simple things of daily life. We always have good food at home and we manage to find organic food even in the closest surpermarkets.

... the street right in front of our building... we just have to cross it to get to the supermarket where we also find some organic food.

2 photos taken along the river while riding my bike... there is a big road all along the river made only for bicyles and pedestrians... there are parks, toilets all along the way, spots for families and kids, for sports, for golf, etc. It is very convenient and away from any car traffic. It goes all along the Yodogawa river from Osaka to Kyoto to Arashiyama... One can bike as far as one wants.
