The Yangtze

There are lots of boats...everywhere we go.  
They use them for fishing...there are several types.  
The Chinese junk has the sails.  
The next two are called long boats, 
which we rode up into a tributary of the Yangtze.  
We also rode a ferry (the one with the flag) to go to excursions off of the cruise ship. 
The last 
little boat is like a buoy, that marks where the boats can go.  
Those are fish traps in the water.
