Swimming in the South China Sea

You could say some things are universal. For the Forth of July, SCAD HK rented a "junk" for those of us who had started their little adventure. Now the classic wooden hulls were all booked for the day, which left us with a shiny little number that held all twenty-one of us (and two dogs) quite comfortably. The captain took us out about an hour and a half to an island that boasted white sands and a small reef. What we found was that and about twenty other large junks out for the day of sun and fun - just like Altoona....

After a week of threats of bad weather, possible Amber warnings and even severe heat, we had a perfect day. Not a cloud in the sky, and when we got too hot, there was a quick jump to cool us off.

The water was clean, the food was expansive, the beer was cold, all we missed our friends and family.


  1. Ah, the fine recreation of yachting. Looks like fun.


  2. Are you going to post a lot of junk mail?

  3. Great photos, Gattis Family . You girls are so lucky to get to experience living in Hong Kong while in grade school. I bet you are learning so many fascinating things and making great friends. Keep the posts coming.
