It’s interesting that my knowledge about the Errantry Lodge’s backyard “Shapo Dang River” was from two skinny dippers.

說來有趣,知道怡然居『後院』的這條砂婆礑溪,是從認識2位『水中溜鳥俠』開始~


After determining the direction of our B&B business, I took a B&B course at National Dong Hwa University. Destiny gave me a chance to be Chou’s neighbor. He was also a new immigrant from Taipei to Hualien to chase after his dreams. We began to familiarize because of our similar background.

確定經營民宿的方向後,參加了在東華大學開的一門民宿課程。很有緣的與周董比鄰而坐,咦~原來他也是從台北來花蓮尋夢的新移民,於是在同樣的背景下,我們很快就熟絡起來嘍~


Chou lives a life of leisure. Everyday around 8am, when most of the Shui Yuan Di swimmers rush for work after their morning swim, He with咖子 (Japanese pronunciation) enjoyed this swimming pool which is full of rustic charm. These two 40-year-old middle-aged men looked like two sunshine boys enjoying the essence of the Sun every day. I wish this will also happen on Arthur someday.

周董的生活愜意極嘍,當時的他,對於民宿和我一樣還在發想階段。每天早晨約8點,在大部份於水源地晨泳的朋友陸續趕上班後,他才與咖子(日文發音)享受這充滿野趣的泳池。這兩位四十來歲的中年人,因為每天享受這日月精華,看起來就像陽光男孩。真希望這樣的變化,假以時日也會在Arthur身上發生。


These two sunshine boys are with great sense of humor, but at the same time retain a childish heart. When the female swimmers either go to work or go back home, they would go skinny dipping. It gives me the idea of “He who strives hard will become alike.” However I still cannot be like them, free and easy. Admiring their whims, so I called them heroes.

這兩位陽光男孩,幽默、風趣之外,還保持著一顆未泯之童心。當水源地晨泳的女性朋友陸續趕上班或回家後,這2位泳褲一脫就裸泳起來了。看他們愜意的徜徉其中,「有為者亦若是」的想法不禁由然而生,但畢竟無法像他們一樣灑脫。很欣賞他們的率性,故稱其為大俠。


Sapo Dang River (Sapo Dang, Atayal language) is one of the sources of Meilun Creek and also Hualien City’s water source. Upstream river trekking is a popular sport in recent years. Theresa and I experienced it once. It was so unforgettable. You need to apply for a mountain permit for that. I’d better you have qualified equipment and are accompanied by coaches, in order to be safe and have fun.

砂婆礑溪(娑婆礑,為泰雅族語)為美崙溪的源頭之一,也是我們花蓮市的水源地,上游可以溯溪,是近年來最夯的玩法,我和Theresa體驗過一次,那被水玩的感覺甚是難忘。上游必須申請入山證,且最好有合格的溯溪裝備及教練陪同,方能安全又盡興。
