The Other Side of Lamma (南丫的另一面)

Lamma Island is the 3rd largest island in Hong Kong, smaller only than Lantao and Hong Kong island,  well worth more than one visit.


On my way again!

 
 Clouds over Western



Approaching southern Lamma.


Sok Kwu Wan


 
The Ferry Pier



Dragon Boats without the dragons




Fish rearing rafts


Flower on the way to Mo Tat Wan



An abandoned house


 
traditional wooden water barrel


Purple Melon Protection



Banana flower



Roadside pond



approaching Mo Tat Wan



A row of 8 abandoned house of the former Yung Shue Ha Village of the Chau family whose ancestors came from Po On County just across the border two centuries ago. The famous actor Chau Yun Fat came from this family.



A monument at the head of the old village


Rocks at one side of Mo Tat Wan



Part of the beach



Another view of the beach


the other side of the beach


the water is clear



Shek Pai Wan



the same beach from the other side



same beach, different angle



The tide is low



Another abandoned house



the former stove?



Going up the hill



Looking back at the beach


The way up



Clouds over the hill



Deep into the mountains back to Sok Kwu Wan



The side of the path is thick with vegetation



The path between bamboos



Some are half fallen



Some coffee cakes back at Sok Kwu Wan



The feet beneath a bar bench



Shadows on the way to the pier 

 
Pennants for dragon boats fluttering in the wind



The new ferry Pier


25th Anniversary of the Promulgation of the Basic Law? Cause for celebration or  serious reflection? Will the ball of so-called "universal suffrage" be shot into the ring?


Whether the ball will go in or just hit the rim of the ring and bounce back, this woman thinks it's more profitable to take advantage of the low tide to to pick some shell fish


and this grandpa thinks it more worth his trouble playing with this Hong Kong Yacht which he built with his own hands



and water under the pier stays as green as ever.



Time for a last look at Sok Kwu Wan before ferry arrives



Clouds above the Bay



Clouds further afield



Clouds over Hong Kong



Not all white



Will they clear before the proposed new legislation over our new election laws are due to be passed or rejected ?



There seems to be an opening in the clouds



But as we approach Western District, the clouds seems much thicker


 
When we look North, it looks really dark



A tug boat, tugging at what?



Clouds over Western District



White above, dark below



It's the same as we approach Central



If the clouds are any indication, the prospects doesn't look good over Central either
