Kawaguchi at dusk 埼玉県 川口市 夕暮れ

A cold, rainy Sunday, on the heels of a cold, rainy Saturday…more like January or February than late April. Hard to shake the feeling this is a lost weekend. Late afternoon, the rain recedes, and a trace of sun dots the horizon. A chill is still in the air, but a brief dose of sun is enough to turn the mood around.

In order of appearance:

(1) Tonerikoen 舎人公園

(2) West of Tonerikoen, crossing Shin Shiba-gawa 新芝川:

(3) Kawaguchi City, Saitama 埼玉県 川口市 夕暮れ (along the General prefectural road Adachi Saitama bicycle path line 一般県道足立さいたま自転車道線, map)
