That Day We Floated Down the River in a Bamboo Raft

I can still vividly remember the very cold day when we took a ride on a bamboo raft along the Nine Bend river by the side of WuYi Mountain, China.

It was raining cats and dogs when we were on the raft. The rain was whipping on us and we were shivering all over.

We picked a bad time to be on the river – we didn’t have the heart at all to appreciate the scenery on both sides of the river.

All we wanted was the raft trip to be ended as soon as possible.

The weather changed for the better in the afternoon when we climbed high up on the mountains.CIMG0287

Gazing down below, we saw four rafts on the  meandering river, an orange colored pavilion roof and steep mountains with trees on both sides.

The mist was still thick and was cascading down to the river.

It was a wet and cold day – a day to remember!

PS  I have also posted on this blog my travels to WuYiShan which included this ride on the raft. Interested readers are welcome to peruse it.
