after a hot sunny week the day dawned wet and grey

the azalea Mount St.Helens is just starting to bloom

it was an early start, flying from Victoria to Vancouver

transferring to Japan Airlines and then the 10 hour flight to Narita (Tokyo)

where it was HOT and humid

let  me introduce you to my travel companion – Mini Moose

Mini’s tee shirt has “I love Vancouver” on the front ( I couldn’t find a small one in Victoria) so she is wearing it backwards

when the needle case is unpacked we’ll change that

meanwhile Mini is relaxing and recovering from a 17 hour time change

Rogers chocolate for breakfast – yum

today it is grey and raining

we’re off to catch the train to Tokyo – see you later if we don’t get lost in the Tokyo train system

I usually travel alone, it is good to have Mini for company!

    A 10 hour flight and a 17 hour time change? I droop just thinking about it! So glad you have a congenial companion!

      thanks to everyone for the comments,now working on the intricacies of international wi-fi. Watching the sun rise over Tokyo on a foggy/smoggy morning – magical. Off to Fujino this morning.😊
