It was around half past four when we left the beach. After putting everything in order again at the hotel, we went to Lianfengshan Park by taxi. The park was only 15 minutes’ ride from the hotel and the road was almost clear (This reminded me of the ever-jammed roads in Beijing), so we arrived there fairly quickly.
The took its name after the mountains in it. Actually the park was built on the mountains. We bought the tickets and entered the park. It was almost the closing time of the park and the setting sun was flaunting its last flamboyance above the horizon not far away. A winding path led us up into the dark-green exuberance of trees. The path was well-paved with flagstones carved with beautiful patterns, and was stretching far into the mountains covered with various unknown trees. As we were going deeper into the woods, the path became bumpy and steep,some part of which only consisted of stairs of huge boulders. And it went up and down with the mountains. Along the path were thick grass dotted with old trees, and from time to time you could also see beautiful flowers in the grass. The sun was casting its shining golden rays on the trees, some penetrating the thick leaves and spreading on the thick grass or ground. Gradually the gold lustre began to fade away and we realized that the evening was coming.
There was a steel tower on the top of a mountain, we climbed up and had a birdview of the city. Matchboxes of buildings were built along the coast, beyond which was the immense sea. Misty fog was drifting like a thin veil among the nearby mountains. On the tower, I was delighted to find a small tower that echoed with this one on another mountaintop. What a view!
Almost one and a half hour past before we reached the exit. The path was always going up and down, some part was so narrow that we had to be very careful when passing it. As we were going forward, a small creek was accompanying us, the gurgling water was singing happily. When the darkness finally reigned the park, we could only hear its murmurs. Then the beautiful lanterns along the path were lit up. They were swaying among the trees just like lovely fireflies.
We went out of the exit and took a taxi back to the hotel. The quiet streets in the day suddenly became a bustling market. The small restaurants by the roadside were full of people, and delicious seafood was served. We suddenly felt very hungry, so we came to one of them and enjoyed a nice feast of seafood.
What an exciting and relaxing day!
