Why So Many Posts With Same Dates?

Dear readers, you may be wondering why so many of my recent posts have the same date, even though they are obviously about places and things that happened days apart.

I plead laziness.

After a two-week trip to Japan, I simply don’t want to take the time to figure out where we were when. . .

And for some reason, my Nikon DSLR transfer software dumped about 1,700 photos into one folder instead of separating them by date, though my Canon pocket camera did create a folder per day.

Likely my bad working with Nikon Transfer, but there it is.

So as time allows, I’ll keep adding photos and commentary from the trip, and let the dates fall where they may. . .

Walking Family Dogs in Rice Fields in Aomori, Japan

Walking the family dogs in the rice fields in Aomori Prefecture in northern Japan a couple of weeks ago.

Jun, the little female, was new to the family and a bit uncertain about going for long walks far from her new home, but quickly warmed to the activity.

She got a tad freaked out a couple of times, and needed some reassurance, and Eito, the older dog, wondered why the heck she was getting special treatment.

Walking rain, sleet, snow, or sunshine!

We saw a few of these raptors soaring over the fields and forests. Got this shot at max zoom with my pocket Canon SX730HS.
