Took a short trip north a bit which included the sea-farming ponds on the way and way back. I made it as far as just north of Dali jia. Stayed for a long time along a canal that goes through some rice areas. Strong and cold wind. Snow in the forecast for tomorrow - really hoping that's not accurate.
