930 a.m. Mum and dad were up early this morning, already taking their second relaxing hotsprings bath. After packing the car we were heading off … further south. Infact I decided we should go to the southern most point of Taiwan. Neither Chia or I had been there ourselves, so it would be a first for everybody.
10:00 a.m. Stopped by a small beach that looked out across a bay to Taiwan’s 3rd nuclear power facility. It was weird to see people on jet skis and laying in beach towels near clear water and yellow stand with the two domed reactor towers in the distance. I guess it is the cleanest form of electrical power generation yet the deadliest if something goes wrong.
11 a.m. We parked the car and walked a few meters to the soutern tip of Taiwan. And what a wonderful and lovely view it was. Ah Formosa, how lovely you were.
12:00 p.m. Lunch time. It was time to head back up to Kaohsiung. Mostly to beat the traffic congestion that would start today as the long weekend began to wind up. But first something great to eat. Not more than 15 minutes drive northward we stopped at a hillside township and dinned at a Taiwanese/Thai/Myanmar restaurant. And it was delicious. A final tasty last memory of the south.
2:30 p.m. Arrived back home in Kaohsiung. We were all feeling pretty tired. Time for a long nap.
Spent the evening going through a volley of photos of our journey south. A long with some cool Taiwan beer. AHHHH.
