Around Sai Kung - Part I

My dear friend See Yoon SMS me one day, told me she and her husband would drop by HK to pay me a visit. What a pleasant surprise!

She has been to HK for several times already (one of the rich wife I know), so I think ordinary tourist places won't gonna to satisfy her anymore. Since she had ditched her kids and travelled free and easy with her husband, and they didn't mind to put 2 nights at my place, it's very convenient for me to make a plan for her then.

They arrived late in the Saturday night, but was awaken early by my kids in the next morning (sorry ya). After taking a long breakfast and shopping for gifts till the afternoon time, we leaved for Sai Kung.




We love Sai Kung. We used to go there quite often, but not for this year. So, it's good that they come, so that we had 'excuses' to made time for it.



The weather was very nice on that day, sunny day with blue sky. Just a perfect day for outing. We paid the fare and hopped in this old boat to sail to our destination...



So my friend, I really hope I won't let you down for the trip we were about to go...



Slowly leaving the Sai Kung Pier...


















If to put our boat to race with this boat, it will be like a race between the tortoise and rabbit.



Houses with the greatest ocean view of all.












15 minutes later, the boat had reached Sharp Island.



I reminded myself for several times that the last boat from here back to Sai Kung Pier is 5pm.





















Such a nice place to go for pak-tor...














This beach is quite a beautiful one...



As usual, sons knew what kind of tools / toys they should bring along...




This beach is fun for me, cause it provides considerably complete sea shells for me to pick.




See Yoon, I'm glad you were here with us this time. I always like to share good places with good friends like you.



It's been 20 years I have got to know you, really not a short time. Thank you for being my friend all these years. I cherish our friendship.







The beach is quite a beautiful one.







Sharp Island has become part of Hong Kong National Geopark, which was officially opened in 3-Nov-2009.




At low tide, visitors can walk to the opposite small island by a ridge of sand and pebbler, which will be submerged during high tide. Unfortunately, it was high tide by the time we were there.











The stone which resemble a Polo Bun. But Vincent said it looks like a brain.


Auntie See Yoon must have missed her sons so much...


They were so busy...



so busy to fill up the gap with sands.



Now I know why we didn't get to see this Polo Bun last time...Some kids must have filled up its gap before us.







My mom's collection.



A special shell which was given by an stranger, after I complimented it when she show it to me.



One day, I am gonna to try kayaking in this ocean...




































Walked to the other side of the island...






Sai Kung Pier as seen from Sharp Island.
















Vincent's collection...



My collection. Give me 1 hour, and I would 4X this amount.



See Yoon's head-scratching pose



KT was trying to teach my boys fishing by using a string and a dead shell...



Silly them, think uncle KT's method was going to work...








Ok, almost sun set time, got to go now...



That's not our boat to return to mainland...




not that boat either....



this boat is, must remember it.













Love this sunset scene...

I noticed you always have alot of photos in your blog. Do you have an efficient way to organise the photos ? I have a hard time trying to do so each time inserting a photo as it always appears on the top of my post and I have to manually drag it to the location that I want.

JJ, Happy New Year to you and family too !

Sure you will have the opportunity to travel on your own if you can find someone you trust to look after the kids. Or wait till you kids become not so clinch on you...hang on ahh.

Well, I understand your problem. I face the same too over here.

There is no better efficient way for me, but I will always insert the photos from the bottom to top manner.

It means i will insert the photo i plan to put at the last in my post, first...then insert the photos i plan to put at the second last, third last...and the photos i plan to put at the top of my post must be inserted lastly...got my meaning?

It's not difficult or troublesome for me to do so. After all, the photos have their orders too. So, I just reverse the uploading...that's all

Mun Yee, good idea on the uploading sequence. Will try it out the next round. Thanks :)
