B-day day off

It just so happened this week that my day off fell on my b-day, so I got to do something I have never done on my b-day- golf! My girlfriend also took the day off and we went to a very well-known course in the neighbouring city of Karuizawa (軽井沢). This course is frequented by businessmen from Tokyo on the weekend, with green fees around $250, but because it was a weekday, and the season is winding down, we played for $60 each (including cart, delicious lunch, and hot spring)- quite a bargain. It was a beautiful sunny day and also quite empty, so we played at a leisurely pace with no one in front, and no one behind. I would love to have included a picture of the several we took with the snow-capped volcano in the background, but due to a mental lapse, there was no SD card in the camera. Luckily, that is the only thing that has gone wrong today.
And to keep in line with this blog’s theme, I am just about to open a bottle of Junmai Ginjo from a local brewery, with b-day cake, of course.

b-day cake and sake
