Cara and Shawn are in town with us for the next few days, and so we took them on a punishing ride to West Lake, and taught them how to dodge the maniacal Chinese drivers. Here we are at West Lake... ALIVE!
The spectators were watching us as usual, so I turned my camera on them, to their surprise! If they only knew they are famous now!
Some wedding pictures being taken - we did catch a peek under her gown and she was wearing blue jeans! We took Cara and Shawn down to feed the fish and see the blossoming trees.
Some very brightly colored flowering trees...
Here's a flowering boy...
The boys posing for the camera. It's much cooler to say, "Thumbs DOWN, Dad!"
A Japanese Maple in the park.
... and a flowering Peacock!
My sister's favorite shot... Why? Because it's PINK of course!
The Leifeng tower in the background and one of the arching bridges, a part of the Su Causeway.
More flowering cherry trees on this misty day...
Some Chinese tourist, taking a picture of his girl...
And here are some more males, trying to impress their girls!
Cara found ANOTHER flowering tree. Come ON CARA!! It's time to go!
This lady was a tourist who got dressed up to have her picture taken by her family. She was nice enough to pose for me too! Two fingers up!
Here's her little girl!
And the two together. So cute!
Another peacock we saw, prancing in the park.
Another Japanese maple in the park.
Now we go to the Police Station to register Cara and Shawn, and where they're staying. If you don't see a blog entry tomorrow, maybe we're all in the klink!
