On Friday Morning, Chris and I decided to take a morning trip to Nanwan Island. Nanwan Island is the home to over 2000 macaques (a very old breed of monkey).
Nanwan Island (aka Monkey Island) can be reached by taking a gondola on an “overseas ropeway”.
|The view of the fishing and houseboats from the gondola was breathtaking!|
When we stepped off the gondola, we had the privilege of meeting a slew of monkeys!
|Welcome to my island. DON'T FEED US!!|
|I was amazed at how easy it was to approach and photograph the monkeys.|
|I love me some bananas!!!|
|Don't steal my cookie!! I worked hard to lift it from that nice man.|
|HI! HI! HI! HI!|
|Welcome to the monkey spa...feel free to pick your treatment!|
|I love the facial expressions.|
|Can I hitch a ride?|
|This is my favorite picture of Chris.|
|30 seconds after this picture was taken, the monkey swiped at me because I showed teeth when I smiled.|
|If you take one more step, I will throw it!|
|It's five o'clock somewhere...GAMBEI!|
Long story short, we had a fun time hanging with these cuties!
