中国古代传说中,有八位神仙(铁拐李、汉钟离、张果老、蓝采和、何仙姑、吕洞宾、韩湘子、曹国舅),他们个个本领高强。有一次,八仙在蓬莱阁上聚会饮酒。等到大家都快喝醉的时候,铁拐李提议乘兴到海上一游。其他仙人齐声附和,并说好各自凭自己的本事过海,不能坐船。

In ancient Chinese legend, there were eight immortals (Iron-Crutch Li, Han Chung-li, Chang Kuo-lao, Lan Tsai-ho, Ho-Hsien-Ku, Lu-Tung Pin, Han Hsiangtzu and Tsao Kuo Chiu). Each was a master of individual and unique abilities. They were once gathered and drinking in Penglai Pavilion and on the verge of drunkenness, Iron-Crutch Li suggested taking a trip to the sea. The other immortals agreed and upped the ante, saying they could not take a boat but had to cross the sea using their martial skills.

汉钟离首先把手里的大芭蕉扇往海里一扔,躺在扇子上,向远处漂去。何仙姑将荷花往水中一抛,她站在荷花上,也随着波浪飘走了。随后,吕洞宾、张果老、曹国舅、铁拐李、韩湘子、蓝采和也纷纷将各自的宝物抛入水中,借助宝物大显神通,游向大海深处。

Han Chung-li went first, throwing his palm-leaf fan onto the sea, laying on top of it and floating away. Next, Ho-Hsien-Ku threw her lotus onto the water and stood on it, also floating away. Then, Lu-Tung Pin, Chang Kuo-lao, Tsao Kuo Chiu, Iron-Crutch Li, Han Hsiangtzu, and Lan Tsai-ho each threw their various personal treasures onto the water and one after another, using supernatural powers, crossed the depths of the sea.
