Last Friday, Aogu had the day off. I know, isn't that crazy?! It wasn't a Japanese holiday or anything; just the day his company's Tokyo office was founded or something. We were able to have a three-day weekend in spite of July Fourth not being a holiday here.
Better yet, we were able to take advantage of Aogu's day off by very belatedly going on our fourth anniversary date. Woohoo! We chose to go on a two hour dinner cruise in Tokyo Bay with
Symphony Cruise. Aogu's parents came to the Room here to stay with Koji, and we were off for our "Sunset Cruise," from 4:30-6:30 with a buffet dinner. Here we are, ready for dinner.
After dinner, we went the upper two decks for a walk. With the breeze blowing off the water, it was almost cold, which was a welcome change from the muggy, hot air that's been usual for the last month or so. We could see Haneda Airport just in front of us. I was amazed at the number of planes taking off; one every two minutes or so, it seemed. I was reminded that I love being outside and on the water, and better yet with "Cool Hair" Aogu!
