Swan Park

Yesterday afternoon we decided we needed an adventure. We found Swan Park 2 miles from our home. We also stopped by the Farmer's Market. I was frustrated as I tried to say things that I couldn't say in Japanese....but when we left Jared commented that I had handled the entire conversation...from "Dozo, Dozo" to "Nan desu ka" etc in Japanese. Cool. I guess the motto is to say less. ::snort::

Quick photos as I really need to check one more online business thing and get out of here.

Kim, would you not believe how often one of the kids (or Mike and I) will say, "Take a photo, let's ask Miss Kim or Mr Ryu what that means!" LOL

Wow! That park is aptly named! Is the tower for nesting?

Wish we could be there to interpret the sites and signs!!! We'll do our best! Please send me your new snail mail address when you get the chance. I have some info that might help when reading signs!

I've enjoyed catching up with you, De'Etta. I'm so glad you are getting settled. Such an adventure you all are on...very exciting!

My grandparents lived in Japan for a time when I was very small. They always told me that they loved the Japanese people. I was too young to remember their very grown up thoughts on the matter. (I think I was about four or five when they told me about Japan.) But through your blog, I've been able to glimpse the culture and put two and two together. Thanks for sharing!

That park is totally beautiful. BUT where do the swans go during the winter? Are they able to make it thru the winters out in the weather?
