May weather is generally the best of the year in Tokyo, by Kangaeroo’s reckoning, and though it looks like it’s gonna shape that way, it would be nice to say “bye” to the cold until at least the late autumn.
The first weekday of May greeted early risers with a delightful sunrise over the Tama River.
Rain started falling around midday the previous day, rendering riding as a bit too tough.,
The rain persisted overnight and into the early hours of the morning.
The forecast was for the weather to clear and become sunny by the end of the day.
Roads were still wet and slippery, though, so care was required.
This is a strange day, being a one-off work day in the middle of a period of potentially close to two weeks’ off for some.
Unfortunately, Kangaeroo has to work, which meant waking in a downbeat mood.
Nature had a nice way of making the early rise worthwhile, though.
And Belladonna appreciated the morning, too.
She certainly got the chance to look resplendent.
And put on a fine show.
The outlook for the rest of the time off is pretty promising.
