One-a-day posting No. 6 – Cheung Chau in the late afternoon. This shot was taken in December 2006 across the small Cheung Chau harbour from the Praya. Cheung Chau is one of my favourite day-trips in Hong Kong – the site of good seafood, temples and the hottest beach in the whole world. How many times have I received 3rd degree burns on the soles of my feet running across the sand to get to the water?! Sadly, the beach is now over-developed, so not as attractive as I recall from my youth. Our day out this December took in a circuit of half the island, steamed prawns in garlic with choi sum and lashings of San Mig, Chinese torture in the form of a complete back massage (how can a 7 stone woman cause so much pain?) and a sleepy ferry ride back to Central and Tsimsy. Heaven.
