MAY 17, 13 .. LAMMA ISLAND .. HONG KONG ..

DISCLAIMER !  The DARK GREY OVERCAST PHOTOS IN THIS POST ARE NOT THE FAULT OF MY CAMERA ! When I shot the below photos HONG KONG was having SOME FOGGY AND GREY AND RAINY AND DRIPPY WEATHER.

As I said in the Map of Hong Kong above .. Hong Kong is several things. It is a CITY .. the City of Hong Kong. It is also an ISLAND .. the Island of Hong Kong. It is also a GENERAL AREA .. a large area .. from 1842 until 1997 it WAS HONG KONG THE BRITISH CROWN COLONY. The general Hong Kong area encompasses some 260 + ISLANDS and some 400 Square Miles.  On the map .. above Central Hong Kong is the Kowloon Peninsula and the City of Kowloon .. I am staying in Kowloon.

To the South of Central Hong Kong and Hong Kong Island .. is an island named LAMMA ISLAND. There are two Villages on Lamma Island .. Yung Shue Wan and Sok Kwu Wan.

My friends from France .. see the Post .. FWIW (HONG KONG)..  178.. February 24, 2012 .. Clement and Patricia and Merlin Ohlinger .. 'discovered' LAMMA ISLAND and got a hotel room there in the Village of Yung Shue Wan on the island after several VERY EXPENSIVE days in Hong Kong.

To get to Lamma Island you ride a Ferry. Below is a photo of the Lamma Island Ferry. It leaves from Hong Kong Central .. Pier 4 .. which is to the East of Pier 7 where the Star Ferry docks. 
The adult fare (each way) is 16 HK Dollars or $2.16.  BUT I PAID only 2 HK Dollars yesterday when I rode over to Lamma Island because I am an 'elder' holding an 'elder' Octopus Card.  Being a senior or 'elder' has some advantagesl

The ride is 25 minutes each way and the timings vary during the day .. from every 20 minutes to every 30 minutes to once-an-hour during the non-peak hours of the day .. the LAST Ferry is 11:30PM.

So here we go to Lamma Island!

The above Lamma Island Ferry is quite different from the below Star Ferry. I rode a Star Ferry from Kowloon across Victoria Harbor to get to the Lamma Island Ferry shown above.

Each and every Star Ferry has a name.  Back some years ago .. I counted 14 different active Star Ferries and knew all of their names .. ALL ARE IN THE STAR FAMILY .. Twinkling Star .. Solar Star .. Morning Star .. Evening Star .. Silver Star .. Day Star .. to name just a few I noticed on yesterday ride over.

I do NOT know what to make of the fact that .. the LADY QUEEN OF THE STAR FERRIES .. is named NIGHT STAR !  As you can see below .. NIGHT STAR is quite the Lady Queen.

OK .. after photographing the Lamma Island Ferry I went into the Pier 4 Terminal being sure to enter the correct dockage .. I was headed to Yung Shue Wan the above of the two below names. 
I did NOT get outside of the Ferry Cabin to shoot photos .. so I did not get a photo of the island as we approached it .. I think maybe you can get outside in the rear and could photograph the island as you leave the island. 

YUNG SHUE WAN AND LAMMA ISLAND IS BEAUTIFUL AND QUAINT AND A REAL JOY TO VISIT .. I hope the below photos convey this to you all !







Except for an emergency vehicle and a utility vehicle there are NO MOTORIZED cars or trucks or buses or motorcycles .. on Lamma Island ..

I LOVED SEEING THE BELOW SIGNS throughout Yung Shue Wan Village !

Two very nice 'informative' Displays for Lamma Island ..


Below is a photo looking down from the Ohlinger's Hotel back in February of 2012. Lamma Island is really quaint.

Someone has a 'sense-of-humor' ..

Will you JUST LOOK AT THESE LOBSTERS  !

Will you JUST LOOK AT THESE PIZZAS ! 

Well there you have it .. a short but an EXTREMELY SWEET visit to Lamma Island and to Yung Shue Wan and with the Olinger Family .. back in late February of 2012.  And again yesterday on my short rainy visit to Lamma Island.

Smiles .. Cap
