Day 57 At Sea







Today was very much like yesterday…. We had partly cloudy skies, nice breeze and sunshine. It has been a very smooth ride through the South China Sea. Tomorrow morning I will be out on deck very early, no later than 0600 to catch the sail in to Hong Kong Harbor. It is definitely one of the best harbors to sail into early in the morning. After we dock I will be going on a highlights tour (for the 4th or 5th time) to catch some good photos. Here is the tour description: Hong Kong Highlights Depart the pier for Hong Kong Island and cross under Victoria Harbour by tunnel. Head up to Victoria Peak by funicular tram ride for a breathtaking view of the Harbour and Kowloon. You'll drive past Repulse Bay to the southern side of the island, with panoramic views of one of Hong Kong's most popular and beautiful beaches, along with the beautiful hotel that has long been a landmark. Next, you will continue to Aberdeen where fishermen and their families live on thousands of junks and sampans. Enjoy a short sampan ride here, and a brief stop will be made at one of the city's jewelry workshop for you to see the wonderful craftsmanship of the goods, with refreshments offered in the exclusive showroom. Continue to the small village of Stanley and Stanley Market, famous for its clothes, furniture, souvenirs and great knock-offs of designer goods.
