China Wanderings!

Now that we have our house basically set up, we are ready to start exploring more than stores!
Yesterday we tried out a pool in the area with some new friends.  Beautiful pool right next to Shenzhen Bay.  The boys enjoyed swimming.
Today we really had an adventure. We bought metro passes and tried it out.  The metro is brand new and really  nice and clean.  Just two stops over was Chi  Wan. A short walk from the stop is where a beautiful temple is located.  It is dedicated to the Goddess of the Sea.  They actually still use it.  They had incense burning which smelled great.  We've included some pictures to show you.  We are going to try to take a new adventure in the Shenzhen area each weekend.  We were given a map with highlighted spots to see around the city.  There are lots of interesting things to see, both ancient and modern.
