Sunday started with a needed light breakfast of poached eggs on toast made by our accommodating host.
After applying lots of sun tan lotion after yesterday's back burning error, we set off for lamma island. This involved a pleasant ferry journey of approx half an hour.
The sun was out in full force so armed with bottles of water we set about exploring the alleyways & shops of lamma. Soon however refreshment was needed & we headed to the waterfront bar for a beer.
Lamma has a number of seafood restaurants that overlook the bay, & Harry chose well again. We enjoyed a variety of seafood from fish, prawns & razor clams.
We were joined at lunch by Holly whose boyfriend Lee was taking part in the lamma 500. This is a dragonboat racing event for which many teams had gathered from the local area. We watched a number of races, in the baking sun. However it was pointed out to me that today was actually a nice cool day compared to summer in HK. I'm very glad I came at this time of the year, as I don't think that as a resident of the costa del toon I would have been able to cope with anymore heat!
We then departed lamma to get back to downtown HK to visit one of the main tourist attractions the peak tram. Sadly Harry had some work today so Sam took over as our sole tour guide.
The queue for the tram took half an hour, in this time we learnt by everyone can queue as well as the British!
The steep tram ride to us to the peak where we engaged in some shopping, then off on a circular walk (avec ice creams) with some spectacular views. We set off in daylight & finished the walk at night which was perfect to see the city lit up. As Sam had already concluded the peak walk had a Jesmond Dene feel to it, just with much better views.
No holiday would be the same without a bit of an English feel to it. Therefore in the evening we went to watch the toon play city in the trafalgar bar, & ate some traditional pub grub. Although the result was disappointing it could not take away from another great day in a great city.
