ABC Wednesday: J is for Jagged Coast

The east coast of Northern Taiwan is very rugged but also very beautiful. Many areas, the cliff comes almost directly into the ocean with only enough room for a highway. It is now the Northeast Coast National Scenic Area. There are many small working fishing ports dotted along the coast. We can often see fishing boats unload their today's catches by the harbor. The restaurants at the fishing ports serve some of the freshest seafoods. The coast is connected by several highways to Taipei which is only about one hour drive away.

Along the coast we can see many different geological rock formations. The waves are from Pacific Ocean and can be very big and severe especially when a front is coming in from the Northeast.

But it also has its quiet moment.
