Much clearer and brighter this morning with the sun out and shining down on us, and clear views from the slopes as well. Going to be a lovely day.
And we are going to have more similar days coming up as well, perhaps until around Sunday. Should be warm too.
Here's one for the diary. Saturday 3rd May. Sansai (mountain vegetable) tempura. Free! Yes, get to check out some locally grown sansai vegetables deep friend in yummy tempura style at the base of the Nagasaka Gondola from 2pm. Sounds good to me, I'll be there if I can...
