Back to Guilin, China… Our privately hired boat ride down Lì River at dawn with the sun rising over the famous karst mountains. Oh and you witness the level of air pollution that hails from the cities.
Photo 2 is of the karst mountain face named Painted mountain of Nine Horses 九马画山. Can you spot the resemblance, even through the smog and mist? I can say that from further back at a better angle you can pick out the resembling shapes better. I took too long looking at it before remembering to take a shot, lost the best opportunity, so this was the best I could do

early morning river traffic

Continuing the series of posts on my visit to LiJiang, Guilin… Since we were the only boat with only two passengers and foreigners to boot, we were definitely a sight for the locals in early morning river traffic. It was neat to see the riverside residence have their morning market riverside. Too bad we didn’t have time to stop off, it would have been neat to experience
—– I had hired a private fixer/guide to get us a early morning sunrise boat ride down the river, before all the tourist ferries were out on the water. Our river trip began at 6:30am aboard a local transport boat that seated about 6 inside and an open deck for cargo or people, much like the one pictured in the first photo. The dawn and sunrise on the misty river was incredible. It still seemed like a dream

Curious water ox

Curious water ox. It was a treat to see water oxes greeting us before their work day started. The dawn and sunrise on the misty river was incredible. It still seemed like a dream.❤️ This shot was taken at dawn, just before sunrise.

Such a bonny day for a ride on the ferry ❤️ Def helps my distract emotions right now. Just left the Sunshine coast where my little Fenley Tucker will stay in living care with dear friends of mine, while I head home to prep for leaving for NYC tonight, for 5 days. It’s a bit amazing to feel just how much I already love his little being, my heart aches, knowing he’ll be stressed for a day or two as I’m missing from his environment while he’s struggles with separation anxiety still

Would you be surprised as I was to see this blooming on you morning walk this week?
Such a delight to see blossoms blooming in November, and a camellias at that! We’ve been having more traditional temps here in October and November, where we’ve gotten frost, thus surprising to see these blooming away.
My curiosity had me looking diligently at this row of camellias half a block long, and to my delight I found one tag that the landscapers missed removing when potting it, it’s called Winter Star Camellia! Now I want to get one potted on my balcony

Fenley napping on the ferry ride home.
I have so much love for this little being, just watching him sleep makes my heart ache and swell. ❤️ We completed our first girl-and-her-dog road trip to visit friends and he did really well. I’m so proud of him and feeling that we make a great duo

These two are about the same in brain age, so sweet to watch their relationship develop 💗

Fenley is gentle and patient, likes to give her nose kisses and little N giggles. Then on day 2 after us showing her how to pet Fen gently and encouraging her to do so, she began to feel comfortable and pet him on her own ❤️ It’s so lovely to have two little ones who are dear to me get to experience developing a relationship with one another

“How beautiful it is to find someone who asks for nothing but your company.” 🦊

Week 6 and Fenley now knows to get out of the way while staying close enough to keep an eye on me while I’m in the kitchen working. In due course he’ll relax more and the anxiety with abandonment will go away hopefully… Then I’ll prob find it weird to get used to him not being my shadow anymore. I’ll be proud and a bit wistful, lol. The love of and for a dog
