I took a nice long ride on Friday, along the coast and one of my favorite areas. I’ve blogged on the Yong An ride before; nevertheless, the ride up to Yong An is very enjoyable and has quite a long stretch along the Taiwan Straight, always a favorite place to be.
I enjoy photographing the ships on the Taiwan Straight. I’ve seen quite a few of them from the roof of our home. I took this shot from the road along the coast.
There were people out and about on the Taiwan Straight on Friday, looking for shellfish probably. Notice the beautiful color of the water.
This was my destination for the day – Yong An Fish Port. I wanted to ride up there for lunch.
A dredge was busy at work. The entire harbor has been dredged out and it’s my guess that once they finish with the opening to the port, they’ll be all done with the project.
People fishing. One of these days I’ll have to try my hand at fishing up here.
Eventually I got some lunch. This is grilled salmon.
This is a dish of mountain vegetables, one of my favorites.
I took this photo too late – the entire plate of shrimp was gone!
This is Artifice Gordon, looking sleek and fast, at the end of the Yong An parking lot. The restaurant staff got a kick out of seeing the trike. I got a bit sunburned, despite my sunblock, and I had to make a “bush latrine” on the way home but all in all it was a fine day for a ride. The total distance cycled was 45.3 KM.
As usual, I had the GoPro camera with me, and I shot quite a bit of video of the bike trails up in the area. Allow me to present 3 videos of my Friday ride:
