While I taught, Sue, Peter, Jack and Stefania rode to West Lake, today. The lotus plants were in full bloom and Sue took many shots of them for future painting inspiration!
So much new growth on the lake! In the winter time, all of this is trimmed down to brown stalks that are below the water line. What a difference a few months makes!
Near the lake is a small rock garden that they wandered through, off of Beishan Lu.
Stefania, Jack and Peter, stopping for a rest.
Tomorrow after Sue finishes class we get on the bus to Ningbo, about a 2 hour ride from here. We'll do a quick tour of the town and visit our friend "Anita" who works there now. Expect a couple of days until I get around to blogging again!
Last but not least, here's a little video of Sophie doing a dance she learned at school:
