Eastside Snaps Part II

I had a checklist going prior to our Taiwan trip, most of the items on the list, of course, were food related, besides the usual touristy spots in Taipei, we weren't expecting knocking-our-socks-off scenery from the mountain and the beach, (being from SoCal, we thought we had those covered), but we couldn't be more wrong, it's the one thing Taiwan caught us completely off guard. Dare I say, even better than Hawaii.  Milky turquoise blue water, against the greenest mountains we had ever seen, the tour bus drove through hours of breathtaking views, photo stops were many, I was beyond smitten.
