Chapter 1623: Tourism plan
Translator: Nyoi-Bo Studio Editor: Nyoi-Bo Studio
When Li Du opened his bleary eyes, he expected to see Sophie. Instead, he saw a man standing at the window with his to him.
The sun from the south came through the glass. It was a little harsh for Li Du, who had a hangover.
He covered his eyes and yawned, then asked sleepily, “Eh, where are the people?” 𝘪𝑛𝒏r𝘦𝚊𝐝. 𝒄o𝐦
Steve turned around, smiled and said, “Isn’t there one here?”
Li Du sat up abruptly and asked, “Why are you here? Where is Sophie? Isn’t this my wedding night?”
Steve shook his head and said, “You have dozed off and are now confused. It is not even dark yet, Sophie is accompanying the guests, and there was no one to look after you so, I could just volunteer to do that.”
Li Du rubbed his temples, which were aching dully, and laughed. “I am not a baby. Do I need someone to watch me when I sleep?”
Steve sat across from him and said, “Actually, there is something I’d like to talk to you about.”
Li Du joked, “It is an adventure again, isn’t it?”
Steve did not say a word but frowned and kept silent.
Li Du was surprised. “Did I guess right? You are going on another adventure?”
Steve said, “This is an ultimate adventure. We have analyzed some meteorites and information collected by multiple families over the last hundred years and found an entrance into the fifth dimension in the fourth dimension. We are going to see it.”
Li Du asked, “Did you really find that place? How is that possible? If there is such a place, how can the government with the strongest finances and most advanced resources have no knowledge of it?”
“Because they don’t believe in the existence of this place,” said Steve.
He paused and hesitated as he said. “Actually, what we found this time is only a guess. It is up to us to check the final result.”
Li Du shook his head. “To tell the truth, Steve, I don’t believe there are places like this. And I just got married, and I don’t want to be separated from Sophie. We are about to go on our honeymoon.”
Steve expected him to say so, and immediately said, “This time we are going to Canada. Canada’s security is good, the scenery is very beautiful, and you can have your honeymoon trip there.”
Li Du continued shaking his head. “Man, I know your idea is about killing two birds with one stone. However, I am really not interested in this kind of adventure. How about this? You can explore first. If you meet any problems, you can call me. I’ll be very willing to help out.”
Seeing that his attitude was persistent, Steve sighed gently and said, “Well, it is not urgent. We will go back, discuss the schedule, and arrange it first. We will talk about it later.”
The wedding was over and the guests were going home.
Hans had arranged for them to return by sea and air routes. The ones who were in a hurry could take the flight, or they could take a cruise on the sea if they had time.
Li Du’s and Sophie’s families would stay on Seagull Island. Other than them there were Hans and his wife, Hannah and some others, who stayed to keep them company.
Although Li Du bought Seagull Island, he has not had a full tour of it yet. Before, the island was very dangerous because there were snakes anywhere, so he did not venture inland.
Now the sea snakes on the island have been all removed, and the construction team had dug into mountains and was building houses above. They had been doing the construction for more than a year and did not encounter any snakes. So, the island was considered safe.
A few days after the wedding ceremony ended, while the southern hemisphere was at the end of autumn, Li Du took a tour of Seagull Island.
Because it was so far from the mainland, there were very few animals on the island. There were no invasive species like rabbits, mice, cattle, sheep, and deer. There were only turtles and a large number of seagulls.
Seagull Island was a nesting site for the sea turtles. The laying season was over, and the eggs have hatched. There were many turtles climbing out of the sands every day and stumbling as they crawled into the sea.
The beach on the north side of the island was particularly popular with the turtles, with large specimens being occasionally seen on the beach. These large turtles’ shells were round and flat, like Roman shields.
Li Du had never seen this kind of turtle before. He got close and wanted to have a look. The big turtle was very cautious, and when it noticed that an unknown creature was approaching it, it immediately moved its four legs and crawled into the sea.
Though they trudged along the shore, they entered the sea with great dexterity.
Li Du had no choice but to go to see the baby turtles instead.
Every day, groups of small turtles would emerge on the beach. They looked like the adult turtles, with flat, round backs with olive-gray, yellowish-brown edges, and a thin layer of wax on the edge of the shield that made them a little soft to the touch.
Mrs. Martin was also interested in the turtles. She informed them excitedly, “It is a Flatback, a separate species of turtle that is only found in the area around Australia.”
“How well are they protected?” asked Li Du.
Mrs. Martin said, “They are an endangered species and there are not many of them because they live in an area where there are a lot of sea snakes. The sea snakes like to eat turtle eggs, so the situation of their breeding was not very optimistic.”
Li Du was more cheerful about the situation now. “There used to be a lot of sea snakes on Seagull Island. I had dealt with the sea snakes two years ago, so it could be estimated that the Flatback turtle’s population could expand now.”
There were not only Flatback turtles on the island but also loggerhead turtles, hawksbills and many more bird species, which Li Du hardly recognized.
Winter was approaching in the southern hemisphere, and the birds were ready to migrate. Some birds were going to the northern hemisphere, and they were coming from the Antarctic region. Seagull Island was their first resting stop, the birds were always seen flying there in groups.
Mrs. Martin, who would observe these species when she has nothing else to do, advised Li Du, “The island is big and it is a waste to have it empty. You can develop tourism here. Look, there are large areas of wild grape forests, there are Chinese gardens, and there are so many sea turtles and seabirds here that the place is sure to attract a lot of tourists.”
Li Du thought about it and nodded. “That is a good idea.”
It really was a good idea and gave him a reason to start work again.
The project team had developed many areas on the island before, but they still did not encounter the opal mine on Seagull Island.
Li Du contacted the engineering team again. If tourism were to develop, the private dock that had been built would not be enough. It was in the shallow waters, and could only dock small yachts. Tourists would not possibly come to the island on a yacht.
Therefore, he first approved the construction of a medium-sized dock.
When the engineer came to do some surveys, he shook his head again and again when he saw the construction site Li Du had chosen. “This place is not suitable for building a dock. There are too many stones on the bottom of the sea and the construction would be too heavy.”
Li Du did not care. He waved his hand and said, “Just start from here. I have to think about the look and feel because I want to develop the island’s tourism industry.”
The engineer smiled wryly and shook his head. “The island is too far from land to be worth much for tourism.”
However, he just made a casual remark. Since the boss was willing to toss money, what did he care? He was not the one who would be paying.
The big ships were coming again, and there were tools left behind by the island’s engineering crews that were not shipped back, so it was best to strike while the iron was hot and go ahead with construction.
