Ecology trip to Po Toi Island 莆苔島生態遊

I've no creation this Sunday but quite good for a family day out to Po Toi Island - an outlying island I visited this New Year day and had a post about it already. It's still worth to mention it and share with my new friends. Our ferry departed from Blake Pier in Stanley.

The picture above is where my studion situated.

Arrived in Po Toi Island in 30-min.
The island is a small fishing village.Only a few houses with little population.
We strolled along the seashore trail and started the ecology walk. It's fine weather with autumn breeze.

Walked up and up with little energy to the top.

Up to the top, the turtle was faster than us !! This is a "Turtle Rock" . Can you imagine the "turtle" look?

A Temple of Goddess to safeguard the fishing village.

Surplus gains dried for future consumption

Not always have gains, sometimes only an empty net. Life is like it with gains and losses.

This island is mainly of rough rocks but do have some pretty flowers.

Also small creatures struggle for lives.

After a few hours walk on the island, we're back to Blake Pier. Cats were waiting for food on the rocks - it's dusk.

Back to Stanley we called it a day.

Coincidentally it's the Stanley Plaza re-opening celebration and the ambience was with fun and laugh.

A rare Sunday I don't have creation but a fruitful day with family in a breezy day.


  1. what a wonderful day, beautiful ful photos, your studio is in a remarkable site, just beautiful.Its no wonder you do such lovely creations with this outside your windows for inspiration, , I am so amazed at the rock formations, and the fishing village is so different from anything I have ever seen , the boats are different, I love the photo of cats waiting for their dinner, the fisherman must give them scraps do they?The water is just so amazing in color, what a beautiful post,
