KRISTINA   
From the park, we immediately went to the next destination, the Bingma Point Lighthouse, which is located in Longmen Village, Zhangman Town, Zhangzhou City. It is a self-driving road to the villages and towns. There are local villagers driving through the country lanes. I remembered Vietnam, a group of cattle arrogantly occupied the entire road, lined up slowly and forward, a leisurely and idyllic scenery. There are many such large wind turbines along the road. They are seen in the clouds, especially the feeling of small freshness, decided to stop and take a photo with it. standing next to it, I found out that it was still spinning, especially tall, tried several angles with a wide-angle lens, and barely had a photo that was quite satisfactory. You can see the Bingma Point Lighthouse again. It is an important navigational aid on the northwest route of Hainan Island. It has direct access to the highway. It is taller than the Lin Gaojiao Lighthouse. We can only look outside, and the interior is just under construction and cannot be accessed. The way back to the lover's bay, although the fog is relatively large, but there is still the sun, I stand on the rock in the lover's bay and look down, I feel that watching the sunset here is very good. When the sunset gradually fell, the sunset glowed red half the sky, and the fishing boats on the sea returned. From the singularity to the indifference, from the colorful to the sky, it has poured out the afterglow of love for a day, unimpeded to the sea, and we have to continue on our way to Sanya.
