On our second trip to Hong Kong we hired a car for a ride into the New Territories and visited a small fishing village. We were very disappointed in that village. It wasn't at all photogenic. This wasn't the case with the village we visited this trip. There were many good photos both of the village and the various fish they offered for sale. I'm happy we didn't forego this optional tour.

Walking along the waterfront under the awnings (pictures above and left) there were numerous storefronts selling seafood of all types and, also, many restaurants. The collection of seafood was amazing.



Snails or is it escargot?

Crabs and who knows

Small boats



A large Napoleon fish ... this saddened us as
we'd seen these fish underwater and they're
quite friendly and beautiful

A Chinese tour group
After visiting the fishing village we returned to Kowloon for the rest of the afternoon free to roam the streets in search of whatever. I know Anne was trying to find something and we went to several stores looking for it, but I can't remember what it was. The most memorable part of the afternoon (for me) was watching two busloads of Asian tourist unload. The little old ladies leading the way with cigarettes in hand and the men following. Many of their faces had such character I wished I could have done some portraits, but that was impossible.
This was our last evening in Hong Kong before flying to Bangkok, and we would spend it at a farewell dinner for those not traveling to Bangkok with us. GCT actually had two tour groups doing the identical tour to this point. We were known as the "Green" group, and the second group, the "yellow" group, were all returning home from Hong Kong.
