A look at the Yangtze from the top
of a hill in Wanxian
After our visit to Wanxian we boarded the Princess Elaine about midday and set sail for Chongqing, 375 miles upriver. We would arrive in Chongqing about Noon the following day. From this point there wouldn't be much to see, but we were in for a surprise that we didn't expect. Believe it or not, the Sun almost decided to show itself on this the last day of our Yangtze River cruise.

Anne, ready for
any emergency!
Please forgive me for going overboard and including two rather large pictures of the sunset. I guess I was just overjoyed at seeing the Sun after so many dreary days. It's the only time during the five days of our Yangtze cruise there was even a hint of sunshine. Thank goodness it wasn't cold and we only had light drizzle once, otherwise it would have been one miserable five day voyage.
