Photographer's Note

These old painted fish-scale designed boats at Bo'Ao, on the east coast of Hainan Island, caught my eye. Hainan is off the southern most coast of China.

That's Matsu Temple in the background. There is a much bigger & better temple a few kilometres out of town. That temple is known as Dongfang Wenhuayuan and is easy to reach by local mini bus #2.

Bo Ao was named after the mythological creature 'Ao' that had the head of a dragon, the body of a turtle, & the tail of a lion.
