Morning Swim

The view from the Aberdeen Boat Club this morning.  Taking advantage of the pool for a morning swim also leads to having some spectacular views of the Typhoon Shelter.

Boat Yards and Luxury Condos

Boat repair yards at the foot of luxury residential condo towers overlooking the Aberdeen Typhoon Shelter. The industrial boat yards and associated shore based marine businesses, although very important for the continuation as a working harbour, are frequently photoshopped out of promotional billboards and advertisements for these property developments that have sprung up around the Typhoon Shelter.

Jumbo Ferry Pier

Jumbo Kingdom Pier, the departure point for the ferry that makes the five minute run from it's Shum Wan Road mini park to the huge floating restaurant in the middle of the Aberdeen Typhoon Shelter. My most famous neighbor. Always worth a stop to see the dramatic play of light at sunset. Hong Kong Island South.
