Jeremy's Home Japan Trip Travel Log Day #7
When we went to bed on Tuesday night it was raining. When I first woke up it was raining. The second time I woke up it was raining. The third time I had woken up it was blowing like mad, but the rain had finally stopped. An hour or so later, the rain started back up with a fury.
After some breakfast, dog entertainment, and other morning stuff, Aaron and I headed to Zama so that he could return his defective monitor, pick up some stamps, and get the mail. While out driving around, I had noticed something very odd. There was some blue stuff between the clouds. It seemed a bit odd at first until I realized that it was something called sky.
Out where the sky and clouds met I was able to see the local mountains for the first time (and we've only been here a week). It was cool to finally see some of the local geography.
Well, believe it or not, the Sun finally came out. After lounging around the house for quite a while we managed to muster the energy to take the dogs for a walk. While we were out we saw the strangest thing--the Sun!
I'm finally starting to believe Aaron & Kristin's claims of "It was beautiful here the whole week before you arrived" and such.
Dinner time. Aaron whipped up a batch of his wings and homemade beer. We had some of the beer last night so that wasn't anything new, but the wings were a first-time experience. They were good wings. And this is coming from someone who hasn't had wings in well over a year.
After the food was gone and we were sufficiently full, I grabbed the laser pointer and lead Unix (the dog) out to the front yard to play a game of chase the dot in what I thought would be a futile attempt to tire her out. Amazingly, I got her to lay down after running around the yard for a solid 5 minutes or so.
