Monday's Adventure

John wanted to go back to Neiwan -- he was thinking about taking a young adult group to Neiwan to explore the area and see the fireflies on Saturday.  So we got ready to go and drove up to Neiwan....driving around the town in the rain but not really stopping.  Drove past the town and explored further into the mountains.  On my of my favorite things about living over in Taiwan is that you are really not far from anything -- you want to go to the beach -- it's like a 20 to 30 minute drive, you want to go to the mountains -- it's like a 20 to 30 minute drive.  It's so nice especially when you lived in North Dakota for the last 4 1/2 years and everything took forever (okay NOT everything) to get to!!  Everywhere you go there are plus and minuses!!

Anyways.....moving on from my rambling.....because it was raining we really didn't go out much to explore.  We saw three suspension bridges....thankfully John made the right decision that we weren't going on one of them -- old with 6 boards missing from the beginning of it! But we walked on another one....which actually wasn't that bad.  It didn't move much (which disappointed John but pleased me) and such pretty views.  Because of the rain there were puddles all around and Little M and Little N were thrilled to stomp around in the puddles getting wet and having fun.  Little N got a little freaked out by one puddle.....it was a sand puddle which went into his sandals which just creeped him out a little bit!  We had fun and I love just looking at the scenery.  There was fog and it just clung to the mountains making them look beautiful & mysterious!
