• Photos of Events • Hanami April 10 2005

Photos of the Hanami and Egg Hunt event in Ashiya on April 10 2005. Some 47 members and friends showed up this day, the weather was great and the cherry blossom just perfect. In short, it was a great success.

It didn’t start out very well. The day we had originally planned for the hanami event fell on the last day of the CA vacation, so it was tough to get in contact with everybody. Then the weather stayed really cold. The cherry blossom didn’t like it. It looked like the blossom could come out any time, but it didn’t. So we had to cancel our original date and moved it one week up.

That happened to be a great decision. The new date allowed more people to come, the cherry blossom was now at its most beautiful, and the weather on Sunday was just great. Not the days before and not the day after. How lucky can you get?

The first people started to arrive before 11:00 and by noon we were all ready for our very first Egg Hunt. All the kids followed red ribbons on an adventurous trail along Ashiya-gawa. When they found hare’s paradise, some 54 chocolate eggs and 14 real ones lay waiting for them. Not for long! The kids found them in no time. Two went missing, though… Somebody probably got hungry.

Back at our little spot on the river, the kids created some egg masterpieces with the crayons that they received from the committee members.

And then the wine Ricco brought. My, it was good! Where do you store those bottles, Ricco?

Wonderful day, great times.
