Our family was invited to join some other school families yesterday afternoon on a drive to Stanley, a town on the south-eastern part of Hong Kong Island. We didn't really know what to expect but were happy to go along for the ride. Stanley is a very popular tourist destination, we found, due to its real estate, beaches, market, and restaurants. Craig took this photo of the great view on the way to Stanley.
This newly-married couple were having wedding photos by the water's edge in Stanley.
I loved the quick look that I was allowed through Stanley Market. It holds an interesting array of little shops selling silk and traditional clothes, children's wear, sportswear, arts and crafts, jewellery, toys, and souvenirs.
We ate tea together at a very nice restaurant called Bayside.
(Not to be confused with our friends' church in Sydney.)
The specials board in the restaurant was certainly a surprise.
The children devoured their nachos and pizza...
...while the adults enjoyed some great conversation.
In the car on the way home, the children were able to watch a DVD. Tirzah has never seen a TV screen in a car and was glued to the programme all the way home, despite the late hour.
