Sok Kwu Wan Walk

Tired of learning TWO days in a row?  Well today is your day then.

Leaf  Cemement

What's This? I don't know, but I like it!

The other day it was beautiful out– 80 degrees and sunny.  I decided I had done enough work for the day (more on that another time) and slapped on my hot pink Nikes.  They are flashy!  I had boiled enough water to fill up my little camelback and cranked up my tunes and set off on a little walk.

On Lamma, there are a few hikes, some hills are kiiind of steep, so if you’re thinking about it, I don’t recommend going on a rainy day.  You might slip.  And fall.  And break some teeth.  Luckily, my face is still in good condition, or at least in the condition I left the house in.

Leaving from Hung Shing Yeh Beach, I waddled my booty to Sok Kwu Wan’s Tin Hau Temple.
Just to give you an idea of what we’re going to do, here’s a starting out picture.

Hung Shing Yeh Beach

Starting at Hung Shing Yeh Beach, we are going to walk this way.

OK, so it doesn’t look as sunny as I said, because actually this picture is from a few days before that, but I thought it was pretty and gives a solid idea of the terrain.

But it was sunny.

Trust me.  By the time I got back from my hike, my laundry that was set out in the sun to dry– was indeed dry.

Actually, now that I look ahead, most of the pictures makes it look kind of cloudy.  I find this to be weird, because I was sweaty when I got home.  Hmm.  It’s a mystery.  Anyway, let’s move on.

Lamma is such a lush, green island, most of my walk either overlooked the ocean or a wild array of green.  You would like it.

Here’s a little slide show of what I got to see, I didn’t take any pictures inside of the Temple.  I’m still unsure what OK and what’s not OK to take pictures of, but if I were attempting to speak to my God(s), I wouldn’t want someone snapping photos of me.
One day in Minnesota,  someone took my picture on the bus without asking.  I felt mildly violated and semi-flattered.  However, chances are greater that he was taking a picture to show an example of what not to wear.
Sorry, I keep getting distracted.  I’m drinking coffee, it’s showing! I think I’ll just post you some pictures so that I can stop talking.

Tah Dah!
