Girls just wanna have fun!

The title says it all.

These girls were having a great time doing their dance.

Newspaper skirts, earrings too!

They're all girls at heart no matter what the age.

For a minute I thought Duke Kahanamoku was reincarnated as a cameraman.

Oh yeah, cold beer on a hot sunny day.

This guy knows what I'm talking about... I think.

I'm reminded of the song "Who's That Lady" by the Isley Brothers.
Who's that lady?
Beautiful lady
Lovely lady

The Dragon Boat Races bring out the festivities all over the city

Coke and a smile?

Girls really want to have fun!

Girls want to sell some spaghetti too!

It's a great day for races and everything that goes with it.

Race crew looking for her boat.

In between races the cheerleaders put on a show.

Go team!

These girls have drawn quite a crowd.

And, one really hardcore fan.

The boat crews are manning their boats.

And, there they go.

Team pink posing for a selfie.

Meanwhile in another part of town the rickshaw driver is standing by for a customer.

Girls are having fun at the amusement park.

Heck, at the Yokohama Stadium they're having a girls festival.

This little cheerleader was entertaining her friends with her facial expresions.
And, if you thought that was funny,

Check this one out!

Everyone is having fun...

...until the doors open and it's time to go to work.

Go get'em!

Reflecting on the girl with the far away eyes

Well, I'm glad the girls are all having fun 'cause it's time for me to head home on the next train.

Back in Yokosuka and time to put the camera away and have a cold one.

Thanks for stopping by!

Transitioning from Spring to Summer

Transitioning from Spring to Summer, this is the best time of the year to be out and about.

It's not to hot or humid yet, people are happy!

Everyone has a smile on their face.

Flowers scent the air.

Children are eager to go to the park to play.

And, it's time to put the top down on your convertible car.

Bus tours are good anytime of year.

I hope this was only a drill.

Horses like this time of year too!

Back allies come alive in the warmth of the day.

This Korean restaurant sparkles in the noontime sun.

Flowers line the streets in beautiful Bashamichi.

It's perfect weather for a peddle cab ride.

Catching a cooling breeze on the waterfront.

The hydrangea are in bloom.

This is the best time of year for walking hand in hand.

Red rider ready to roll!

A perfect day to block off the street to cars and have a block party and flea market.

Trees lining the avenue keep things cool in the shade.

A draft beer keeps things cool too!

Emi decides to by a couple of blouses.

Fabulous day for cruising around on a bicycle...

...as well as a car.
 Or, better yet, a sea kayak.

I like to cruise the underground pubs; anytime of year.

This is Chigusa in Noge; a top notch jazz bar.

All roads seem to lead to Oosanbashi.

From Oosanbashi one has an excellent view of the Yokohama bay bridge.

Good place for a cheap date.

Fun with light bulbs.

And lastly, this lantern reminds me that it's time to put the camera away and get a beer.

Thanks for stopping by!
