Jeff's boss informed him about a week ago that his office would pretty much be empty so he should take the week off. We decided to take a road trip. The one minor problem we ran in to is because there was very little notice and many Japanese are traveling, it was very difficult to find a hotel with any vacancy. Because of this we stayed away from the big cities.
We started with Iwakuni. It has a beautiful bridge with 5 arches.
|It was a beautiful day and the water was crystal clear.|
|If you look closely there is a building on the hill in the background, it is a castle.|
|The underside of the bridge. As an engineer, I love to see how things are built.|
|Yep, this is me. This is to make my mom happy that I occasionally post a picture with me in it - lol! The umbrella was for the occasional sprinkle and a sun shade. Japanese really like to use parasols.|
|This is a fairly famous pagoda and was extremely pretty.|
|Can't blame a girl for getting artsy once in a while.|
