My friend and I met for dinner and talking after work, at a restaurant called "THIS IS CAFE". She had been there before, but it was the first time for me. I had seafood curry and rice, she had a chicken dish with bread. Both meals came with a salad plate and a beverage.
We will get together again soon.

I've begun the tree skirt and a few packages, but mostly I've been thinking about what is coming next, so it doesn't look like much more.

On Friday (Kodomo no Hi), I met my two friends at the train station and we took the train to the port town of Yui, just two train stops from our town. Yui is known for Cherry Shrimp (sakura ebi).
The main reason for our trip was to visit the Hiroshige Museum, but there was a lot to see along the way. A woman invited inside her home to see her Boy's Day display.
This little shop was full of the Hina mobile hangings.
Yui was the 16th station of the Tokaido Route between Kyoto and Tokyo in the Edo Period.
The turtles are enjoying the warmth of the sun.
This is the entrance of the museum and the garden, but photos were not allowed inside.

Outside the main part of the museum was a hands on area where we were able to "catch shrimp".
We had a wonderful lunch of cold soba and sakura ebi, with a beautiful view of the bay.
