Happy 2020 ~ 明けましておめでとうございます ~

Happy new year my WP friends.  Best wishes to you all for 2020 and the next decade.

Sydney missed new years day sunrise.  The beamed summer sun appeared occasionally between overcast, but it was muggy and hot day.

I can not write much at present, but I blessed that I got new years day healthy and safe.

Well, I am going to do more posting in here in 2020.  🙂

明けましておめでとうございます。ここに立ち寄ってくださった皆さんにとりまして、今年とそれに続くこれからの10年が悦びに溢れるものでありますように。今年もどうぞよろしくお願いします。

Happy New Year

I hope 2019 came with bringing smiles and peace to you.

I took a flight to Japan on 30th of Dec at night, to spend new years eve and day with family there.  My first week of 2019 was past as fast as giving one blink.

It was certainly short holiday, and despite the fact that it was really cold there (yes it was to me!) that it was in the range of -1 to 10 deg C, I was clear, energetic and had a great time.  I forgot to take photos in many occasions during the stay, but here are some I caught.

I am glad to be back in here, and I will look forward having more sharing and exchanging photos and journals with you ahead!

Beginning of 2018

I believe many Sydney siders were witnessed New Year’s fireworks.  I was one of them watching from north side of Sydney suburb.

The point where I watched this year was not the best for those who want to watch the entire Harbour Bridge because the bottom of the bridge was being hidden by residential buildings due to the angle, but I still like the spot because it is less crowd and easy to find a spot with no stress (of course it will not be the case if you want to take ‘the best’ position at the site).

Anyway, the gate for the track of 2018 has been open.  Let’s get to see what will happen.  🙂
