Red Beach, Panjin, China

Red Beach is located in the Liaohe River Delta,

about 30 kilometers southwest of Panjin City in China.

The beach’s unique color is caused by a type of plant

called Suaeda vera or Shrubby Sea-blite 

which is a coastal species that flourishes in the saline-alkali soil.

The plant remains green during the summer but in the fall,

 when the plant has matured, it takes on a deep red color

creating a stunning red sea landscape.

Most of Red Beach is a nature reserve and closed to the public.

Only a small, remote section is open to tourists.

Red Beach, Pajin, China
a magical scene
at first sight
that could be anywhere
in the world ~
a sea of flowers
blueberry fields in winter
in Maine
.
a joyful scene
full of life
the 236 types of birds,
the stunning blue sky,
and
the immediate questions:
wanting to know
where it is
and how do I get
there NOW
.
a protected scene
guarded for the future
generations ~
for it is NOT just anywhere,
but a protected preserve
for plants and wildlife
A special unique
creation of nature
A special treat
for all the senses
to rejoice in.
.
And when I look
at fields of red
I will remember
this crowning jewel
of nature
giving thanks
it will be treasured
for all generations
to come

You are among toads

“Think as I think,” said a man,
“or you are abominably wicked; you are a toad.”
And after I thought of it,
I said,
“I will, then, be a toad.” ~ Stephen Crane
