This water has the luster and color of jade, so it is called the Yudai River玉带河.
Every reed enjoys the sunshine quietly, which makes it look so straight, so full of vitality, vigorous, and full of vitality. As far as the horizon is concerned, the sea breeze blows, undulating continuously, as spectacular as the sea. So we used to call it Reed Sea.
