3441 The "S" bend--Xiapu , Fujian Province , China
Due to the pleasant seawater temperature and plenty of sunshine ( but a bit dull and foggy today ) , the Xiapu mudflats are rich in kelp, laver, oyster and yellow croakers. Locals living along the beach are mainly engaged in marine culture. The bamboo poles, fish nets and stone columns that are inserted in the mudflats are used to dry kelp, laver, oyster and other marine products. As the sun rises and sets, the tide rises and falls, the bamboo poles, fishing boats and fish nets form various spectacular scenery .
