Day 3 turned out to be beautiful and a great day for the beach. We had heard from a friend that Stanley Beach was a nice, clean and a happening place. There were many ways to get there (taxi, bus, tour bus) but we took the taxi for about $15. After a slow start from the hotel we left about 10 and got to the beach about 10:45. It was a beautiful ride up on the cliff hugging the coast. Hong Kong was much more 'green' than we expected.
|Much better weather from the hotel room.|
|Stanley beach - the South side of Hong Kong island.|
|Nice sand, nice houses, warm and clean water.|
|People bury people in beaches all over the world!|
|Exploring the rocks for fish, crabs and shells.|
|The water temp was probably about 80. Warmer than|
we thought it would be.
|Happy as clams.|
|Worked up an appetite for a pizza lunch.|
|This was a view of the Ocean Park chair lift (Day 1). A much|
nicer day but I'm sure the park was packed with people.
|All that fresh air and activity.|
After they put us on the airplane for a 9 pm flight, the pilot announced on the intercom that there would be a 3 hour delay. Very frustrating at first but eventually it only became about a 45 minute delay.
