i've been sitting here a couple of hours now
just as well i can touch type
'cos it's been getting steadily darker
as i've sorted through some more of our taiwanese holiday snaps.
the dogs need attending to
dinner needs fixing
mr w will be making his daily call...
i have to talk to you first..haha!
today we're going to visit
the national museum of history
a tiny gazebo & pond near the front gate.
also near the gate
this branch is held up by a large rock!
look at how it's been trimmed over the years
leaving knobbly remains along the branches.
part of the elaborate front gate...just along from the tree.
the funny thing was
that we didn't see any history exhibits...
they were setting up a disney exhibition outside
with interactive installations
inside there were exhibitions of modern small sculptures...
very beautifully made,
vases that looked like pipes joined together,
not that i'm describing it well...
but it was nothing like what i have ever seen before.
but i am getting ahead of myself
because after exploring the front of the building
we made our way
along an extremely narrow path beside this place
opened a wrought iron gate
went down two steps
into the botanical gardens.
in this enormous pond full of lotus plants
we found a kingfisher
we spent all morning walking around the gardens
they were fabulous...
but the pix will have to wait for another day...
'til next time!
