We have visited the area of Haiwan Beach before, but this trip was the first time we went horseback riding there, so I thought I would post some pictures. It was very crowded because this was during the Mid-Autumn, or Moon Festival. This is a Chinese Resort area about half an hour from where we live.

As you can see, there were many carts lined up selling these, they looked good, but I'm sure they weren't gluten free, so i couldn't taste any.

You can see the windmills in the distance.

There are 2 different kinds of little crabs we find in the mud. They are small, no bigger than an inch and a half from side to side.

I don't know any details on this, but it sure looks like an old shipwreck, many people were enjoying sitting on it.

Just like we write our names in the sand on beaches, these are Chinese names in the mud!

Walking back to the shore, you can now see the Palm Beach Hotel much closer.
