So after a Saturday of dealing with people trying to get me to buy something from them, I decided to make my last weekend day in China a little more relaxing and enjoyable. So, that means going to the beach. Yesterday it rained so today seemed like a great day to the beach.
Now I’ve been to the beach before, but Qingdao is also right on the coast, so it’s part of what you do when you are here. So I went to the beach after a morning of reading and a little writing. (You didn’t think this was the only place I was writing did you? Silly blog reader.)
I ventured out to walk in the sand, and enjoy the waves. First problem. I forgot how this is the beginning of the busy season in Qingdao so along with me having the great idea to go to the beach; half the city did as well. So not really a great place to relax, but it wasn’t too bad as I was able to sit around and enjoy the sun shining through the cloud cover.
I walked the beach which shortly turned into rocks. So I took time to photograph these cool rocks that are usually covered up during high tide. Overall the trip was good just not as relaxing as once hoped. So, I returned back to my room where my roommate was finally awake. After sitting around and watching Korean television with him for a little bit, which I can’t understand a bit of it.
So after laying around I decided to make my way to the other side of town to May 4th Square cause it’s pretty at night. So, not an eventful day, but one that was worthwhile. I can’t complain too much. China had been good to me. Qingdao too, it’s just a bittersweet end to a place that I feel like I was just beginning to get to know.
So after reading this I realize this is one of the most boring posts I’ve ever made. I’m thinking right now that I shouldn’t post it, but hey I’ve already typed this far. This gives you an idea of a normal everyday, weekend day for me while I was here, not that exciting, but just interesting enough to tell a small story.
Sometimes that’s all I ask for.
Here’s a few pictures from the day at the beach and down at May 4th Square. Spent most of the day relaxing so not a lot to show for it. Just a few things for you to enjoy.
Ps. the next few posts will be remotely posted because of how busy I am and how much traveling I have ahead of me, but they’re still good, so enjoy them (well I think they’re good).
