One of the things I love about living in Penghu, Taiwan is the many opportunities Nick and I get to try things that we probably would never have tried before. One of these experiences was windsurfing. Another, scuba diving, and the most recent, stand up paddle board.
Being two of the twenty or so foreigners in Penghu means that we know all the other foreigners in Penghu, and lucky for us, some of the other foreigners do some cool things on the island. One of the guys trains the best windsurfer in Taiwan (they’re currently training for the Olympics), and because of that, owns lots of water activity equipment. On Sunday he let everyone try stand up paddle board at the beach. It was a lot of fun even though I spent more time in the water than actually on the board (let’s blame my wonderful balancing skills). The constant refrain in my head was, “I think I’m gonna fall. I think I’m gonna fall…” Just think little engine that could, but without as much confidence. Nick, however, didn’t fall once! We even brought Bai! While he didn’t spend any time in the water (he doesn’t like it, the crazy dog!) we had fun playing with him on the sand. So without further rambling…PICTURES!!!
