Hello, this is Taylor. I spent winter vacation in Hofu with my family. It was very nice, but I don't really have anything exciting to share about it. So instead I want to share a few photographs I've taken around Hofu this winter with my phone. I think that Hofu is a very beautiful area, full of mountains, rivers, coastline, islands and beautiful scenery. We are so lucky to live in a place with so many beautiful things to see every day.
My home is near the Saba River, so I often go there for a relaxing walk. Here are a few photos from the river:
Of course, in Hofu the river is not the only water--we have lots of coastline. There are many beautiful places along the sea. One of my favorites is the beach in Nakanoura. It's a quiet, peaceful place and a great spot for watching the sunset.
At night, we often have a clear sky overhead. While the city's lights are too bright for us to really see many stars or the Milky Way, we can still see some stars and we can of course see the moon. Here is a photo of the moon taken in Mitajiri.
Wherever you live, I hope you also can find a moment or two to enjoy the natural beauty that surrounds us every day!
