TANTOU ISLAND: chilling out on the beach

21 Jun

It was lovely on subsequent days on Tantou Island when the weather was warm, and it stopped raining! The sun peeked out from time to time but it was mostly cloudy, so unfortunately none of us got the tan we wanted. On the plus side, at least none of us got sunburnt ;)

The moment the skies cleared up, we all made a beeline for the beach, like bees to a honey pot. It was loooovely vegging out on the sand, sleeping, reading, and just chilling out with everyone. We even squeezed in a little random BBQ on the beach, with chicken wings, sausages, and bacon-wrapped mushrooms! Most of the time, however, was spent lying around and pretending it was bright blue skies ;)

Chilling out to let breakfast digest

Wandering around on the beach. There was little sun, but at least it stopped raining!

Lovely deserted beach, VERY rare in China

Can you spot the goats, high up in the mountains?

The beer wench

Can’t really see, but these people (not part of our group) complete buried a
guy and girl up to their necks in the sand. Heh!

A totally unprepared photo of us ;)


We spent hours just lazing around. It wasn’t sunny, but at least it was warm!

The boys spent the afternoon playing soccer. We couldn’t watch the World Cup
cos no TVs on the island ;)

Using a tiny (but powerful) microscope to look at insects, to pass the time

Just hanging out :)

Checking email on my BlackBerry – yes I’m a wee bit addicted!
