Among the greatest joys in life...

...is taking your young daughter outside for a morning in the park, which is what Amber and I did today, driving up to Chung-cheng (Jhong-jheng) Park 中正公園 in Fengyuan (Fongyuan) 豊原(とよはら). Unlike her old man, Amber didn't seem to mind the heat and humidity. 写真を見てください


Here is she is laughing in front of the memorial to the September 21, 1999 Chi-chi (Ji-ji) Earthquake 集集大地震, and enjoying herself on a slide 滑り台

 
Amber was very interested in the waterwheel that stirs up the water, thus keeping the pond oxyginated. She also tried her hand at feeding the carp コイ


After checking out the playground and the carp ponds, we crossed over the red bridge to the other side of the park. Amber was still holding on to the empty fish food roll.


These kinds of pavilions can be found in parks all over Taiwan.

Lanterns hanging in a temple.

After enjoying ourselves in the park, we drove up to the lookout near the Fengyuan Country Club, where Amber took in the view, and I zoomed in for a shot of the road that leads to the No. 4 Freeway...
...and then we took a short walk into the woods. Amber was very interested in the local flora 植物誌, while the local mosquitoes took an interest in Amber 蚊に刺された  
As with the weather, she didn't seem to be bothered by them. If only I could say the same thing...
