Tripping on the Tama River

Kangaeroo cycles pretty much daily.

Due to a number of time constraints, nearly all the rides are along or near the Tama River. This river is one of the main waterways in Tokyo and has been supplying the city with water for centuries.

River-side cycling is on bike tracks and really isn’t demanding (except for the requirement to be constantly wary of pedestrians). But it’s still great fun.

Being able to wake up, get on the bike and shake off the cobwebs and let life rip is a blessing for this old man.

And Kangaeroo is even luckier by being able to ride the absolutely gorgeous La Cangura, who heads the fleet of Roo movers.

Goings On

It’s been a strange old start to the year, really, mainly because Kangaeroo is strange and old.

Tokyo has been experiencing a mild winter.

So far there has been no snow and daytime temperatures have been closer to what you’d expect in March than the opening month of the year.

That’s been perfect for walking, which allowed for the capture of the shots in this post.

Kangaeroo was helped deeply by being able to use cameras and photography to seek out the beautiful things around us.

Though he didn’t really do a great job of it, sometimes he would snare a good shot.

But all good things come to pass and now the camera has been passed on to someone else to see if that can help them to find the same everyday blessings.
