Tourist Boats at the Summer Palace

These wonderful boats take the tourists who visit the Summer Palace near Beijing out for a ride in this man-made lake that was original created for the Empress Dowager in the mid-1800's. Beijing is an extremely hot place in the summer and the breezes off of this lake were wonderful to feel. I love how the trees in the background can be seen to be swaying in the wind. So happy that I had a chance to take Stephi there in 2009.
