the scenic and peaceful view from our room's balcony...overlooking a lake.
First stop for today is the Ice Breaking Cruise! Into the sea of Okhotsu...
The cruise leaves from the Port Mombetsu and you only get to experience this between Jan to Mar.
Tickets have to be booked in advance to guarantee you a spot on the cruise.
and we have gotten our tickets to go on aboard. AHOY!
i think it's quite a magnificent sight seeing all these drift ice!
it was a rare sight...which we didn't have the fortune to see either.
but we saw loads of birds...
