Difficult to chill out today

With not a cloud in the sky the temperatures have shot up to the thirties so it is an effort to walk anywhere. We chose another easy day on one of Hong Kong Islands, Cheung Chau. This island main industry is fishing and the harbour was full of little shipping boats. Though the traditional junk boat has practically disappeared. The harbour is also full of bicycles as this is traditional mode of transport in this island. We visited the Pak Tai Temple and dreaded the thought of climbing another hill in those temperatures but fortunately it was only about 50 metres from the harbour front. If you then a walk a further 50 metres you come to a nice sandy beach on the other sided of the island and Margaret decided a bit of paddling might help her cool down.

We enjoyed a relaxing fish lunch then whilst Margaret wandered round the shops I decided to do something completely different and joined the old men snoozing away on the covered pier where it was shady for some candid camera street photography. Hence my blip.

It's strange following the progress of the Scottish referendum from so far away but fortunately we have already cast our postal vote. I guess by the time we fly home tomorrow night the result will have been announced.
