Trust the Weatherman
We all woke up late on Saturday, but decided that we should do something that day. Even though the weather forecast said that there was a 30% chance of rain, we decided to head on to Yangmingshan National Park ((陽明山國家公園) which is famous for its cherry blossoms, hot springs and hiking trails.
Sad to say, the weather forecast was very accurate and it started to drizzle when we arrived. We decided to take shelter and had lunch at the cafeteria.
We heard that there is a place we should check out, a flat grassland called Cingtiangang (擎天崗), so after the not so yummy lunch, we moved on as it continued to rain outside.
Exiting the carpark, we saw a beautiful rainbow! Seems like rainbows are a common sight in Taipei!
The rain got heavier as we drove on, it became really foggy and visibility was really bad, so we decided that it was safer to head for home instead. The park is huge and there are many places we wanted to explore, so that was a huge disappointment for us. Mom was determined to find some place for me to get a good run and we ended up in Dajia Riverside Park again!
I got to say hi to many doggy friends.
And played hide and seek with Mom and Dad.
At the end of the day, we had a good time, Mom was happy and so was I!
Yangmingshan National Park, we will be back on a sunny day!
