I pedaled very hard, and came back home just 10 minutes before the tele conference. It's a shame I couldn't visit a burger restaurant as usual.

Then stopping by the burger restaurant as usual.
It's been almost two months since last time.

On the way back I stopped by Takahata Fudo temple,
To see hydrangea flowers.

They bloom nicely, and Takahata Fudo is less crowded than Meigetsuin.
I could walk around to see flowers easily.

After hydrangea watching, I returned to Tamagawa and ran.
Before being home, I visited a patisserie.
Nice riding over 100km.
