? Unknown. First coastal view on this tour and washroom stop on the way South to lunch

Fangshan Township 枋山鄉, Taiwan

2007-07-10 11:24. BA (Bus Arrives; Bus Arrives At) unknown location for washroom break and first sight-seeing spot on this tour.

2007-07-10 11:40. BW (on Bus Waiting, usually just waiting for head count to finish where one of the team leaders, usually Kay, on our bus C will radio in Mandarin "C-車 Charlie, 全到, Over", after which she will receive a confirmation that the bus may move and leave)

We were on a boardwalk, rest and washroom area in what seems like a small town squeezed between the gray beach, ocean in front and tall green mountains behind us - with a passenger train passing by.

Guessing this is Fangshan Township because:
The timing seems to put us at about Fangshan. We left KYU 2 hours earlier, and lunch was 1 hour away. So we should be about 2/3 down the road between KYU and the lunch point, and Fangshan Township happens to be about 2/3 down the road.

Also, seeing the train tracks was another reason. Maps of Taiwan's South West coast show all train tracks turn away from the coast and into interior Taiwan starting from Fangshan Township, so if we could still see train tracks while heading South on the coast, we must be at or before Feng Shan Township.

So, guessing this point is 屏東縣 枋山鄉
Fangshan Township, Pingtung County
