MAY 29, 13 .. HONG KONG .. STAR FERRIES ..

All of you 'well-seasoned' followers of my web site here may be sighing .. 

"Captain .. I have seen all of the Star Ferry photographs that I want to see!"

This certainly may be true for some of you.  I myself NEVER TIRE of certain things.  Gullible's Penguins!  I can look at them endlessly!  

The below Star Ferry 'oriented' photographs are some you have not seen before.  

So 'here-we-go' with Hong Kong's WONDERFUL Star Ferries!

First you have to find them and 'board-them'.


The second and the lower of the two signs below is my main destination.  HONG KONG CENTRAL!

Below we all now stand at the top of the 'down-ramp' waiting for the incoming Star Ferry to unload.
And 'down-below' here the stampede of (up to 600!) arriving passengers all come .. pouring off their arriving Star Ferry and exiting up the opposite ramp.
To the immediate left below is the ship's entrance.  Do you see the 'gang plank' at the bottom of the below photo?
We are all aboard for this trip of 7 to 8 minutes over to Hong Kong Central from Kowloon.  The one-way fare across Victoria Harbor varies from 0.00 HK$ (no charge for children and disabled and 'elders' of age 65 and above) up to 3 HK$ ($0.39 US$ or thirty nine cents) for the upper deck.  The lower deck costs 2 HK$.  






There are certainly many more 'water-craft' on Victoria Harbor than my beloved Star Ferries.  Trust me!  The below five photos do not even begin to 'scratch-the-surface' as to various shipping you see on Victoria Harbor!








Below are several photos of other Star Ferries crossing Victoria Harbor.





And here-she-is!  The 'Queen of the Star Ferry Fleet' .. her name is 'Night Star'.  She is the apple-of-the-eye of all the male Star Ferries!

Here we are .. Hong Kong Central Star Ferry Pier .. the end of our 7 to 8 minute ride across Victoria Harbor.  Is Hong Kong in the background beautiful or is she beautiful!

We will end this visit to Hong Kong and its Star Ferry fleet with the below photo of one of the Star Ferries 'dressed-up' for night!



What more can I add except to repeat .. Hong Kong's Star Ferries are my single .. number one .. tourist attraction!  I have to realize that probably not every one loves Singapore Rice Noodles!

With Joy!  .. Cap
