Yumiko Enjoying Hot Spring and Cherry Blossoms
As a puritanical uptight American, I had trouble when I first met Ken learning to enjoy the tradition of hot spring bathing in Japan, but after Yumiko came I became a total convert. Our hotel here on the Izu Peninsula had wonderful hot springs that looked out over the Pacific Ocean. The cherry trees were blooming and tiny little warblers were in the trees enjoying the blossoms as well. Wish I had my bird lens!!
