This year was the first time in four years that our family was together in one place (for a week) so we took the opportunity to take a family picture. Not very wintery... With all the animals to be featured the humans play second fiddle.
This morning Tetsu and I went out on our morning walk. A beautiful clear morning! That's our local Mt. Nantai in the distance... not Mt. Fuji.
And our first glimpse of the January 1st sunrise in 2013.
The frost was still hanging on the bushes...
Wishing you the best in 2013, from Taniwa!
