but.... Junk Trip? What's THAT!?
It's a little bit of Hong Kong Heaven.

(Work hard, play hard, people.... that's what this city is all about.)

The ride itself is its own adventure with the swaying and bobbing and socializing and fending-off-sea-sickness-in-the-kids.
But it also means getting to places otherwise unreachable. We explored a small, ancient fishing village (called Po Toi) :
|neighbor and good friend, Adam|
|a house - I peeked inside. Single room. Bunkbed just inside the door. Little wooden table and plastic chairs. A small, old-school TV in the corner.|
Had a potluck picnic on the boat. Then we pulled into a little bay area on the backside of Lamma Island, threw anchor, and literally JUMPED off the junk into the salty, bouyant water for an incredible swim surrounded by luscious green hills. (well - the others jumped. I'm still a bit squeemish and opted for gently sliding in from the lowest-possible-point... ahem.)
Relaxed and happy - PARTY TIME
|don't judge a book by its cover - these were SO YUMMY!|
