Taking a ride on a sheepskin raft on the Yellow River because #thuglife.
It’s not the most conventional method of transport…but if Jackie and Johnny can do it in Skiptrace…then so can I! 😭😆
P.S. the river is “yellow” (muddy) from the huge amounts of loess sediment (which is quite nutritious for plant life), not because a ton of people dumped their “toxic” waste in it or whatever. Just puttin’ it out there.
CS like counter strike: desert defense. Maybe?
Nature is a beautiful thing.
It was wet, cold and foggy. But I think the dreary weather only added to the entire experience. The view from the top of the mountain was absolutely breathtaking. And then I closed my eyes and listened to the echoes of the bell chiming in the background as the wind whipped against my face. I hope it is as beautiful for you as it was for me.
Be sure to buy a variety of cheeses and fig bread from the stalls located near the parking lot, outside of the large souvenir shop.
P.S. They are more than happy to give you samples.

We totally BOOB’ed (brought our own drinks) ’cause I ain’t about the soft drink life.
What more can I say that the photos don’t already? Steveston Village is a must-place to visit in the summer months, even if it’s sweltering hot and you have to fight a throng of human beings to get from point A to point B; even if you hate the smell of the sea; even if you have to queue 20 minutes for your meal under the harsh rays of the sun and then send a prayer to God for available seating.
The fish is fresh as f***. So yeah, check it out.
That’s all I gotta say.

See you next time.
Give yourself a good chunk of time to walk through the park; there are so many beautiful flowers and foliage to admire; statues, buildings, and…even a peacock! (Tip: eat a hearty lunch before your walk to keep you going!)
My favourite piece in the park: the Faun.
I’m not sure what this is supposed to depict. Can anyone clue me in? 🙂
There were quite a few peacocks in the park. I was so worried I would scare it away if I came too close! But just look at him, he’s just posing there so regally, doing his own thang. LOL.
Overall, a really awesome experience!
