Last week we brought the kids to Gao Mei Wetlands at Taichung, Taiwan. It is my 2nd visit to the Wetlands as I previously visited the place with R when I was there in April. This time around we brought the whole family there to enjoy the scenery and watch the sunset.
The kids were happy to go crab and mud skipper spotting that afternoon and were looking forward to playing a round of ” fastest eyes” to see how many sea creatures they could spot on the way.
They were fascinated to see mud skippers flipping around on the surface below the boardwalk. I didn’t take a picture of the mud skipper as it was the same color as the greyish mud it was in.
I took pictures of the tiny crabs instead. This time we saw more female then male crabs around.
I guess that it is mating season at the moment as we were treated to a live crab fight while walking along the boardwalk.
It was really interesting watching the two crabs having a go at each other. They were chasing each other and planting jabs at one another. Most probably there was a potential mate waiting at a distance for the victor of this fight.
The weather was really nice. It wasn’t as cold and there was a slight breeze.
It was high tide when we were at the wetlands so we didn’t see anyone going down to have a walk this time.
Gao Mei Wetlands is certainly a lovely place to visit. A great place to soak in the scenery while watching the sunset.
