Big Day Out

Saturday was a very busy day with the Croakers.

First we took the #26 mini light bus to the Tai Po bus terminal...

...where we caught a #271 double-decker bus to Tsim Sha Tsui.

We had a little walk at TST to the waterfront.

This was the sunniest day we have had all week.

We then took a ferry to Central...

...where we hopped on a 15C bus to the Peak Tram terminal... order to catch the tram up to the Peak for lunch and some souvenir shopping.

The Harvey Family

Delenn was very popular with the tourists.

This was the tram going backwards down the hill.

Glad we didn't have to wait in that queue!

We then rode the trams on Hong Kong Island for a while.

Hong Kong has so many people!

There was another demonstration parade to observe from our tram windows.

After some more shopping in Wan Chai we took the MTR back to Tsim Sha Tsui.

We watched the "Symphony of Lights" together on The Avenue of the Stars at TST.

The children enjoyed a short play at a nearby playground...

...before it was time to catch the train home again. Here is Flynn at 10 o'clock at night happily chatting away to the people sitting near him on the MTR.

Needless to say, the children (and the grown-ups) were all quite tired on the following day.
