Last weekend I ventured out to Iwakuni to see the cherry blossoms. It was amazing! The weather was fantastic and the cherry blossoms were at FULL BLOOM! There were also many food stands around the river. I ate udon and watched the river flow gracefully. It was great.
|Look the cherry blossoms!|
Observing the cherry blossoms made me think about why they are so special. Their short life and great beauty is precious. It is also a sign of the end of winter and the beginning of warmer weather.

I also went to Yanai to enjoy bread from Grand Maman Bakery. It was delicious! I ate red bean paste bread and melon bread.
