I saw Fireflies tonight for the first time in my life...
It was really beautiful.
There was a very light rain while we walked through the perfectly manicured Japanese garden. The air was warm and damp and the earth smelled wet and fresh.
The only thing missing was my hubby, HWMNBN...
Unfortunately it was too dark to take any pictures once the fireflies were out.
For that reason, I am really glad that I took some pics before the sun went down.
On our pre-sunset walk, we saw Koi fish,
Two weirdo kids, being silly with their uncle,
A pagoda from the 16th century,
A pretty entrance to a noodle house,
And a very old watermill,
After walking through the garden and before seeing the fireflies, we were treated (by my grandmothers dearest friend, Chono-san) to a very wonderful buffet dinner at the 4 Seasons Hotel.
The dinner cost over $100 per person and it was totally worth it. We ate everything from sushi to noodles to the most succulent beef...
Momo even ate GOLD...
She insisted I take a picture of her eating the gold flakes that topped her chocolate cake...too bad she finished the cake before i could get my camera out!
