This weekend we didn't have any really amazing adventures out in Japan. I have begun to think about the base as being America and once you leave the gates you are in Japan. So adventuring is always done out in Japan. The weather was really beautiful this weekend. I would say around 80 degrees max and the sunshine was a delight since it was the first sun we had seen in a week.
Saturday, we went out to the Art Center to cut some dowels that I need for the show that I'm sending work out for by the end of this week. I needed some hours this weekend to get some more works finished up. We decided to go out on a trip to the bases nature trails. The base has a whole bunch of woods, a beach, a tiny ski hill, and a golf course. The nature trails start near the bunny hill. From there we got a really nice view of the lake and the mountains.
The nature trails lead us down to the beach of the lake that the base is build on. It's a pretty lake. You can go swimming or rent a canoe or a kiak. You can also rent cabins and stay down there. There are lots of picnic benches and play grounds for kinds. It's nice to know that there is something like that close by. I took this picture as we were going up towards the golf course for lunch. It was a really steep paved hill. Ian has to run up it for PT some times, he says it really sucks and now I can see why.
