Friday, 2 January 2Dinner By The Sea

    That night, Liqi took us to a beautiful restaurant by the sea. Here are some photos.

This pier in front of the restaurant leads to some sort of ferry boat.

Taking in the fresh outside air while waiting for the food to arrive.

This restaurant was built in an L-shape, but with enough irregularities to make it interesting. We were in a little room to the right behind the rocks.

The restaurant had little shops outside, such as the one on the left. The kitchens were far on the left, too. The waiters had to carry everything outside in order to get it to the rooms.


I believe this says "The Nine-Dragon Pond" or something like that. Since I'm a dragon, I liked that name.

You see how windy it was that night.

A plateful of crabs, a local specialty.

Jinjin, who had to leave briefly, has returned and is catching up on her orange juice.
