It was a warmer than average winter day today so we took advantage and took a nice long bike ride. We ended up at the former site of the Taipei International Floral Expo. It was a good day
About 10 minutes, by bike, from our apartment is a bike trail that follows alongside a river. We have gone there twice in as many weeks. The sky was clear so I could not resist busting out the camera.

After what seemed to be months of rain we finally had a weekend without it!
Glorious, warm, recharging, SUNSHINE!
Sunday we went on a bike ride around the area. The weather was perfect. We ate at a new (to us) place called The Magic Bagel. We had a table outside in the shade and it was wonderful.
The only reason we even saw it was because it was next door to “Texas Rangers Fried Chicken
For desert we picked up a fruit tea.
We took it to the park to enjoy before going home.
Every once in a while we go north of town to an area where there are a few stores that carry more products that Americans & European people want. Since we are in the middle of a three day weekend (Monday is a holiday – Taiwan’s independence anniversary) we decided to make a run. Here is a picture of the loot – $53 worth.
