Well, Taiwanese spiders the size of my hand have fur, so the title is not misleading. Also, “Cuteness is in the eye of the beholder”.

This is 龍潭湖. In Pinyin it should be something  like Longtan Lake, which sounds incredibly similar to “Dragon Soup lake”. I’ve been told many times that it has a different meaning, but I still, and always will, call it “Dragon Soup Lake”.

It’s a nice lake between Jiaoxi and Yilan city, not as crowded as Plum Blossom Lake in southern Yilan. The area is filled with many varieties of birds and bird-sized spiders. There are not many things to do, but it’s very nice for a pic-nic and a nice walk under the trees.
