On my first visit (undertaken with Roz's hiking group), it had drizzled on the kaido trip from Sai Wan Ho to Tung Lung Chau. This second time around, we had much clearer and brighter skies -- and temperatures that were much higher than one'd expect to have on a September day. Visually, the results were often quite stunning -- and especially earlier in the day, I definitely did get better photos on this trip than the previous one...
On one of the few kilometers of paved trail that exists
on the island off the tip of the Clear Water Bay Peninsula
Looking westwards to the far away and far more
built-up areas of Hong Kong
Let the record show that the previous photo was taken
from the top of the hill in this photo ;b
A view of the interior of what remains of the Kangxi era
Tung Lung Fort on the northeastern tip of the island
Many of the stones of the fort's impressively
thick walls are now coated with moss
Even this formerly aspiring archaeologist reckons that
Tung Lung Chau's natural attributes are quite a bit
more impressive than its man-made structures!
Rather than see the trees as ruining the view, I take
the perspective that they help make for a pretty picture :)
While the warning at the top is good to have,
the one at the bottom seems like it should unnecessary
To be continued...!
