All Aboard

The Yangtze Gold 8 was our home for 4 nights and 3 days.

We boarded late at night in Yichang and the boat slipped its mooring and started upstream at sunrise the following day.  I grabbed my camera and greeted the sunrise.

An upper deck. When we docked for a tour or, once, for seemingly no reason at all, we were hard up against another large ship. The exit to shore was at water level, through the lower deck of whatever boats were between us and the shore.

Unlike most of my posts, these photos were not all taken on the same day. On our last day on the water, we visited Fengdu, also known as The Ghost City. Not Ghost City as in empty, but Ghost City as in occupied by spirits. There will be some posts about Fengdu in due course.

Leaving the ship - this was on our third day on the water as we left to visit Fengdu, the Ghost City.
