きんようびからみじかいきゅうかがはじまります。- My short vacation starts on Friday.

🙃

I got past the expected reaction to the second dose of the Pfizer vaccine that I received on Friday. My body felt beaten down for about 20 hours starting on Saturday morning. I had body aches and no energy, in the evening I felt chills. That killed my Saturday and I spent the day mostly sitting on the couch or lying down on my bed. However, I woke up on Sunday and felt normal again. 👍

I did not want to undertake a strenuous hike, so I took my daughter to an open space park about 30 minutes away and we hiked a short loop there. The forest in this area was burned in a huge wildfire 21 years ago and then another smaller fire hit again six years later. On some of the phots you can see many dead trees, a lot of them blown down since. Not everything has burned, luckily and there are still mature trees in parts of the burn area.

You climb a hill and get nice views of the mountain peaks from there. Delicate wildflowers dot the landscape. The trail then descends back to a small lake that is used for fishing. We had a pleasant picnic lunch at the lake to finish the outing.

I am off starting on Friday! Monday is a holiday and then I have the rest of the week off as well as the following Monday. I have not planned a long trip, but I will be going on the road for a couple of nights here and there. I am looking forward to seeing different sceneries, although I had been to all these places before, just not recently. A few more days to go...

    I'm afraid of the side effects of the vaccine. I'm glad you've recovered. きゅうかを たのしんで ください😊

    @nt Don't be afraid. The worst reactions I have heard of are a couple of days of severe flu symptoms. You can get past that and after a couple of weeks you have the antibodies protecting you. It's what will get us out of this ongoing situation, provided enough people get vaccinated.

    It's great to hear you are feeling 100% now!! 😊 In Japan the government is phasing in the vaccination, but it will take time us to get even the first dose.😥 Every scenery surrounded by rich and wonderful nature looks amazing.👍✨

    @ゆみ♡Yumi Thank you so much for caring. The 20 hours of discomfort are definitely worth it. I hope the rollout can accelerate in Japan. It's the only tool that gives us a good chance of avoiding future lockdowns. I am a lot more motivated with photography now that I have this forum to share it. 😎

    @Jake Yes, I guess you're right.😖 When the time comes, I'll make up my mind to get a vaccine, for the future of hope...
