    On the island, I looked up at the dark blue sky, cloudless pale blue, the dome covered the earth like a transparent blue sky, like a silk handkerchief, the blue sky stayed some fine and white clouds, like flowers embroidered on a scarf.

    Yinyu Island is a small sandbar with no trees and grass. Occasionally, seabirds inhabit it. It is only 2 meters above sea level, so most of it is submerged at high tide. The sandbar topography is changeable. The scenery is super beautiful. During the Spring Festival, the traffic is not particularly large.

    Our big boat can't get close to the island, so we need to go to Yinyu Island by boat. This is a small island, the sand is so white, the sea is so blue and clear.

    The last island on the third day is also the only one. There is a reinforced concrete structure house on the island. Now, there is a lot of infrastructure construction in the island. The piles are quite disorderly. Besides some fishermen selling seafood, there is nothing to look at. They can only look at the sea and feel the blue, green, clear and pure of the sea once again.
