What a gorgeous day to be on the coast!
Our first Valentines Day in Taiwan, (also V-Day supporting the efforts to end violence against women) and our last big vacation adventure was today. We traveled on bus 1815 towards Jinshan from downtown Taipei and got off in the fishing town of Yeliu. The town itself doesn’t have much besides great seafood, but follow the signs towards the Geopark for surprising scenery.
Yeliu Geopark is well known for its intriguing rock structures that draw people from around the world to see a symbol of Taiwan, the Queen’s head. In advertising photos it looks much larger than life. You can put the name in Google images for a photo that does it more justice. Interesting, but not worth waiting in the line for a photo opp.
If you continue down the path another quarter mile or so, you arrive at the farthest lookout point. Unhindered by many other tourists, you can really experience the land meets sea experience. Reminding me of my Big Sur, CA home….ahhhhaaa…the sea relaxes me.
