[Easy English Blog] A drive in the countryside

I went for a drive in the countryside with a friend today. We both had a day off, so we decided to go out for a few hours.


While we were driving, we saw signpost to two temples. We like visiting temples. They are usually very peaceful, especially during the week, when there are few people around.

In the temple grounds, there were still a few cherry blossoms blooming. In the city where we live, the cherry blossom season has finished.


The petals were falling in the breeze, and they fell to the stone path like snow. It was a very beautiful sight.



My friend was driving, so I could relax and take many pictures. Here is one I took when we stopped at a junction. The bird stayed very still while I took the picture!



We enjoyed our drive around the countryside. I hope we can do it again soon.

How about you? Have you been for a drive recently? Where did you go? 🙂
