All in all, it was a great day. We spend the morning at the National Museum of Marine Biology and Aquarium (yes, it's a mouthful). Tucked away on a near-deserted stretch of the Hengchun Peninsula coastline, the place is actually a sprawling, world-class aquarium.
The forecourt area had a bunch of wading pools for splashing around in--deserted mostly, on an off-season weekday.

The aquarium also had an big glass tunnel--biggest I've seen, anyway--in their main tank.

At one beach, we stumbled on a crew filming some kind of dramatic water rescue scene . . .
The park surrounding Eulanbi Lighthouse is small, but criss-crossed with a network of surfaced nature paths through some really odd little landforms. Fun to explore.

|With the overcast weather and the time of day (late afternoon), some of the trails looked pretty ominous.|
A really fun day overall. I especially liked driving the scooter. I keep threatening to buy one of my own . . .
