Jin Shan Beach

Yes, I said beach…and it’s about (1) hour out of Shanghai. Who knew?? I certainly didn’t until my friends, Alan and Daisy brought it to my attention. Now, they had discovered/checked it out in May. I saw some flicks and heard their remarks…and figured I’d give it a whirl a couple weekends ago. (The pics didn’t look too bad.)

Now, I had super lowwwww expectations for a beach in China, but was quite surprised to see a reallllly nice boardwalk; sand was a lil’ pebbly, but not too bad. However, the water is what I had a slight issue with. It being a man-made beach, it was enclosed and filled with algae galore to the point where algae arms would crawl up on your leg….thereby leaving you to feel super slimy when you exited the waters. Yeahhhhhhh, not so appealing, is it? But it was “ok.”

In any case, well all had a ball, whether it was: playing various beach sport activities or residing on bedsheet-blanket-island with… ipod… and speakers. =)

Oh and I almost forgot.. the camping tent-lined beachfront… I’m pretty sure these were all for rent, though some beach goers also brought their own..
