We did a lot of driving and sitting in the bus today, which was actually nice to chat with some people and catch up on some much needed sleep. But we made some cool pit stops along the way! Our first one was just to stretch our legs, and of course take some more pictures. It was a bridge that went over a busy harbor. It was really really windy though! I was laughing too much at Baker, who brought his umbrella with him. The umbrella was crumbling underneath the harsh wind, almost enough to snap the wires. Also, it would invert as a huge gust of wind swept under.. I don't know why I thought it was so funny. Maybe lack of sleep.
Our bus took a windy road that was on the very edge of the cliffs that had the whole Pacific Ocean in our left windows. We were all on the edge of our seats to try and see the ocean and amazingly steep cliffs that seemed to just drop straight into the water. But another stop of ours was at Cingshui Cliff beach area. We made our way down the trail to the water front. The sand was grey/blackish! Many rocks matched with the rocky cliff landscape. We took many jumping pictures and some didn't move away from the waves, so some of us went back to the bus wet.
Just a few of the various types of orchids this place grows! So many different types!!!
