Food Photos - January Part2

Ponkan Oranges from Dad's Orchard

I guess I wrote about dad's orchard before... He couldn't take care of it himself any more, so we said OK to a young guy who wanted to take over. And it was still in his trial period without a formal contract when this happened...

What happened? Deers ate barks of all the ponkan orange trees there!
I mean, not just dad's orchard. The neighbors' and our relative's also suffered damage. We thought the trees would eventually die. But ironically, this was an "on-year"for oranges and the damaged trees and obviously they needed to get rid of heavy fruits so that they can use nutrition for their survival. 
So, though my left foot was not completely cured, I picked oranges day after day with the help of my friends.
Sometimes we had lunch at the orchard like this one.

Uh... Did I say "food photos?" Oh well. These aren't, obviously. But just to let you know what I was up to around that time.

Since my left foot was cured enough to walk up to the orchard, I re-started my morning walk. Here's one of my photos of omega sunrise mirage. Impressive, ha?
But still I was spending plenty of time at home instead of taking photos here and there or joining fun events. So I started practicing Koto, traditional Japanese musical instrument which I practiced when I was a child (and quit within a year or so). ;)
Then I wanted to make a cover for it, and soon it became my fun project. See the result? I made this with used Obi belt that I bought online for about $15! (This was an incredibly good buy. The original price must have been more than $500 or so.)

And it was also this month that I discovered a couple of new places to eat at. One was an okonomiyaki (Japanese savory pancakes with minced cabbage and chopped meat and/or seafood mixed in) place.

And a new diner opened at the location not too far from my house. This is their "Morning set (breakfast plate?)"
Yep. I was recovering steadily. ;)
