This time I came to Gaocheng to learn about Moon Lake, it was a coincidence. When I first chose an accommodation online, I showed a hostel on the east side of Ningbo Railway Station, which seemed not too far away, so I booked it. At that time, I noticed that it was next to a water surface named Yuehu, but I didn't care much.

I arrived in Ningbo that day, got out of the North Square of the railway station, walked east along the South Station East Road for a few minutes, crossed Changchun Road, entered Gongqing Road for four or five minutes and arrived at the hostel. On the road, I saw camphor trees densely planted on the left side of Gongqing Road, followed by bushes and houses. On the right side of the road, thick and thick sycamore trees lined up. On the outside are long stone railings. Outside the railings are water, islands and ash. The arch of the wall is naturally Moon Lake. I first came to know the good times.

Returning from Tianyi Pavilion that afternoon, the original plan was to visit the lake to visit You, but because the time was getting late, the rain was gradually pressing, and then returned to the hostel. The hostel is on the left bank of the southern part of Yuehu Lake, and its gate is only a dozen steps away from the lake. The hostel is a three-story building with no magnificent interior and exterior decoration, which is in harmony with the surrounding environment. Dinner in the hostel's restaurant in the evening, and see the moon lake gradually disappearing into the night through the large glass on the east side. The restaurant has a wide range of dishes. We ordered enoki mushroom stew, hot pot cabbage slices, assorted beef and deep-fried fish on skewers. They are all home-made ingredients, but they are cooked in a variety of colors and flavors. Of course, it is also necessary to taste the famous Ningbo dumplings, which are indeed sweet and glutinous, and their lips and teeth are fragrant.

In the early morning of the next day, I stepped out of the hostel and strolled along the Moon Lake. It turns out that the lake is a long north-south long strip, with a stone fence and a brick road on the west bank of the lake, and a winding continent on the east side. It is overcast without rain, the sky is light and clear, and the galleries on the Moon Island over there are fresh and pleasing to the eye, and the reflection of the water is thick and faint, which is really difficult for natural drawing. When going straight, I saw an old building with gray walls and blue tiles beside the road on the left. Approaching it, a statue of a person standing next to it stood on the base with "History Master Quan Zuwang". Quan Zuwang was a man from the Qianlong period of the Qing Dynasty. He was a Hanlin, then resigned from government, and studied both historiography and Confucianism. He became one of the important representatives of the East Zhejiang School who advocated the "practice for the world". He is from Ningbo and seems to have written about this month's lakeside, leaving history and style for this resort.

Not far away, a Liuting Avenue crosses east-west, separating Yuehu into two parts. On the north side of the street, there is a courtyard surrounded by high brick walls. The brick gate is named "He Mijian Temple". He Zhijian, the great poet of the Tang Dynasty, He Zhizhang, was the secretary-general supervisor during the period of Wu Zetian (the official position in charge of national collection and editing). Shi Zai's human nature was broad-minded and humorous, and he was more humorous when he was drunk and drunk. He was perfect in poetry, writing, and calligraphy, and won the favor of Xianda and even the court at that time. He did not return to his hometown until eighty-six. His hometown is Yuezhou (Shaoxing), which is adjacent to Ningbo. Obviously he has been here after his retirement. Later generations built a church in the place where he lived to commemorate it. This "Hemijian Temple" has been preserved to this day. "The younger one left home and the boss returned, the local accent has not changed. The children did not know each other. They asked where the guest came from with a smile." A person who wrote such a superficial and popular verse should have a beautiful lakeside. The place where Xi Ji worships.

Because the ancestral hall hadn't opened the door early, and I couldn't admire it inward, I went eastward, immediately northward, and entered Zhouting on the east bank of Yuehu Lake in the north. Here there are green grass and flowers and trees, and you can move forward at will, approaching the lake, and see a "several" shaped stone bridge lying on the water, and the fences are full of carved sketch patterns, very delicate. This is a curved bridge. After that, you will set foot on a slender small continent. The willow trees stand on it, and the silk is wavy. To the north end of Xiaozhou, another single-hole stone arch bridge draws an elegant arc across the water, and is named Huaxi Bridge. From these two bridges, one from the south and one from the north, you can see the gardener's ingenious ideas and ingenuity.

Cross the Huaxi Bridge and continue north along the weeping willow path by the water to a waterside pavilion. I saw more than a dozen middle-aged and early morning swimmers here, or raised their hands to move their bodies, or hit the water to float on the lake, adding a quiet garden. A little angry. Standing in front of the pavilion, the eyes are wide, and the lake is open, and the smoke waves are culminating. To the north, a majestic tower with a thick eaves appears in the shadow of Maolin in the south of Fangcaozhou surrounded by the water. If it is a fairyland, it is Xiangzu Pavilion. "Xiangzu" is another name for orchids. If you want to come to Yangchun in March, it should be surrounded by blue grass and quiet fragrance.

From this point further north, the lake gradually shrank from open to narrow, and finally became a quiet narrow channel. Looking to the right, Pogang is slightly undulating, and the thick camphor is in three to five forests, during which several old houses with white walls and black tops are nestled with the trees and leaves. From the left, the pavilions on Fangcaozhou are dim, and the garden is clear. Then walked across Huanjin Bridge, set foot on Fangcaozhou, and entered Yishuiju. This is an open-style garden in the south of the Yangtze River. However, you can see the reflections of the green pool, the shade of the green trees, the gentle roads, the curved corridors, the pavilions, and the magnificent rockery. It is an intoxicating landscape. This garden is also exquisite and concentrated in Suzhou gardens, but has its own natural elegance. When it was going straight, there was a bamboo fence in front of Heng Chau. The water blocked the way, and then returned to Huanjin Bridge to the turning point on the northernmost side of the waterway. The water surface was like a ring in front of it, and surrounded the north end of Fangcaozhou. The water, autumn trees, red, yellow, and green are intertwined with each other, and the white-walled wooden house and blue tile cottage is still in sight, which is quite a bit of idyllic lake village.

From here to the west of the lake, go south along the canopy-covered shore road, pass the stage promenade, Furong Chau, and the cruise ship pier, and watch and walk, all the way to the painting screen, to Xueting near Liuting Street. Here I want to have a unique silver-covered scenery after the winter snow, and on this cloudy autumn morning, looking out from the railing, Liu Ting's beautifully lined pavilion and pavilion behind the secret prison hall of Shang Liu looks like a mirage, looking back to the north. The clear pavilion of the pavilion is like the painting of Dan Qing. How can all these words be exhausted?

According to the data, this month the lake was excavated during the Tang Zhenguan years and flourished in the Southern Song Dynasty. Constructions have continued in subsequent generations. He Zhizhang, Wang Anshi, and Vance and other celebrities have all left their marks here. The integration of humanities and nature is a transcendence of the beautiful heritage of Chinese civilization. It is said that this lake was located in the southwest of Ningbo's old town, so it is also called West Lake. I think it is more beautiful than Hangzhou West Lake and Yangzhou Slender West Lake. The charm of the West Lake. Or in four sentences:

The smoke waves stand in a thousand pavilions,

Chau You quietly out of the water.

Mo Dao Jiang Nanjun looked all over,

Moon Lake is a beautiful lake.
