Can this be Spring?

I'm feeling it! There is spring in the air. Sure, a lot of people are walking around wearing winter coats.

But, they are not as bundled up as usual.

Ok, maybe some people are bundled up.

Maybe it's about half and half, wearing the winter coat and not buttoning it up.

This guy is feeling it! He don't need no winter coat.

If this is not proof that spring is here I don't what else to say. All along Nihon Odori (avenue) in Yokohama these flowers are blooming.

Meanwhile, out on Osanbashi pier the Royal Wing cruise ship is pulling away from the pier.

It's a beautiful spring day for a dining and sightseeing expedition around the harbor.

No winter coat for these young girls. Friends to the end!

Another one of those half & half guys out for a stroll in Yamashita park.

Standing in the shadows of the Yokohama New Grand Hotel.

Walking down the street all fancy free. For the moment they have not a care in the world.

On this beautiful day it seems as if everyone is feeling fancy free.

I'll have whatever they're drinking.

Their candied strawberries on a stick are glowing in the midday sunshine.

To warm for your winter coat? Yep, it's springtime in Yokohama!

Two different generations strutting their best James Dean.

As a general observation it looks like the girls are happier than the boys today.

It reminds me of the Peggy Lee song "I Enjoy Being A Girl".

Guys just don't get it. The thought of being happy leaves them confused and bewildered.

Hey! Another photographer!

Ice cream makes me happy? Boys learn to stifle their emotions at a young age.

Does anybody really know what time it is?
Does anybody really care?
If so, I can't imagine why
We've all got time enough to cry

Last shot of the day and it's a happy one!

And...
