We took Phoenix to the beach here in Taiwan, for the first time.
We had bought her some new toys for playing with sand, and we wanted to show her how to use them. Once we filled up the wheelbarrow and showed her how to dig in the sand, she started enjoying herself.
To be honest, we were appalled at the condition of the beach. It was littered with cigarette butts (what is it about smokers that makes them think their butts are not trash to be disposed of properly?), glass and other garbage. In fact, it was difficult for us to find a place clean enough for her to play. She kept trying to pick up the cigarette butts and other trash to play with it. This is one unfortunate side of living in Taiwan. People here don’t take trash disposal seriously and they often dispose of it right on the street. I’d better stop before this becomes a diatribe!
