Typhoon Shelter Fisherman

Happy American Thanksgiving Day to the Typhoon Shelter fisherman outside my bedroom porthole window!  It is not considered at all unusual for fishermen to tie up directly along side Watermark's hull, where she shades both the fisherman and the fish.

Anchor Watch in the Typhoon Shelter

Anchor Watch in the Typhoon Shelter. The time to be on deck and watch the sunset, with nothing more important at the moment than to enjoy it ( the anchor is not going anywhere this evening... ). Aberdeen Typhoon Shelter, Hong Kong Island.

Sampan Fisherman

As in an Indonesian Wayang shadow puppet show, watching the projected image of a sampan fisherman mending his nets.  From the deck of Watermark, Aberdeen Typhoon Shelter, Hong Kong Island

Silhouette in the Typhoon Shelter

Masts of a Chinese sailing junk silhouetted against the hills of the Aberdeen Typhoon Shelter.  Photo taken from the deck of Watermark.

There are actually four islands appearing in this photo, Ap Lei Chau, Ap Lei Pai, Luk Chau, and Lamma Island.
