The Honkers-Kiwi-Aussie Tour: Day 39 Lamma Island, Hong Kong

Breakfast at McDonald's before meeting brother-in-law Julian at the terminal ferry. Took the bus to Stanley where we visited the Hong Kong Maritime Museum.

I do some souvenir shopping in Stanley Market then we take a taxi to Shek O. After lunch, deep-fried bean curd, cashews & vegetables, I walk along the scenic headland.
"Stanley is a town and a tourist attraction in Hong Kong, China. It is a peninsula on the southeastern part of Hong Kong Island. It is east of Repulse Bay and west of Shek O, adjacent to Chung Hom Kok. Administratively, it is part of the Southern District.
The proper Chek Chue refers to the village town but Stanley generally refers to all the surrounding areas of the peninsula after the beginning of British rule and native Cantonese name Chek Chue became synonym to Stanley." Source: www.answers.com
Bus, MTR (subway train) and ferry to Yung Shue Wan on Lamma Island where check in at the
Waterfront bar & restaurant, where we are staying for two nights, before having dinner there.
