We were heading out of town, and I was quite surprised that we would travel such a distance for such a short event, but simply accepted that this is China!!

But we pulled up at a car park, and I was thinking we were stopping for a toilet break! But, no, I was wrong.

We had arrived at Li Shui Queen's Gardens, on the far outskirts of Foshan city. I was feeling really lost, as I had no idea what we were doing, until I found a sign over the gate, and then a mural on the wall, introducing the layout of the place! It is a huge place, with differently themed areas, and gardens representing many diverse areas of the world.

When we went in, the first thing we did was board a tourist train, and were driven around the area. It is absolutely beautiful, although a little earlier in the season it was have been even nicer.

After getting off the train, we walked back through the centre of the area for photos. And what a lot of beautiful shots there were to be had!!

I am enjoying playing with my new phone camera too, as will be evident! If I'm boring anyone, sorry about that, but I am really having fun!!

When we left the gardens, I asked Hardy if we were going to Zhaoqing, but he said we were going to get food. I thought I was still fed from lunch time, but we just go with the flow. And I realized we were heading back into Foshan! Lost doesn't even begin to describe my feelings!
