A picture is a thousand words, so here are photos from last year:
View from the mountains of Honeymoon Bay in Daxi, Ilan County.
Roadside images on the way to Daxi.
It's a do-it-yourself society here: no lifeguards patrolling about to rescue the foolish or the unlucky.
Rock climbing in Longdong, north of Daxi, on Taiwan's northeast coast.
With scenery like this, relaxing is easy in Santa Barbara wine country...
...especially with a picnic lunch on a deck overlooking the vineyards at Rusack Winery.
It's a good life.
