|Renee, Craig and their children Jemilla, Keegan and Tirzah|
First we caught a taxi to Tai Po Market Station where we met them outside Starbucks.
They live in the New Territories, which Ella's teachers said we should visit! So when we met the Harvey's they led the way on a tour through the wet markets, which was very interesting.
|Or would you prefer snails?|
|Craig explains the scales to his audience|
|Maybe an eyeball for lunch?|
|Or pigs snout?|
|Phil listens intently to Craig while the girls keep smiling for the camera|
After the wet market, we continued on our walk through the streets soaking up the atmosphere, the kids chatting away like they had known each other much longer than an hour, and the adults enjoying new company.
|Renee took this family pic with the beautiful background|
|I'm thankful for a rotary clothesline at home|
|Jemilla points out something below|
|Ice cream tasting|
|Then the girls discovered makeup and tried some samples|
|Love this photo!|
|Ella and Tirzah clap to get the toys to dance|
|Kate discovers Kate makeup|
|and a clothing store!|
|Now for a real ice cream!|
|Renee showed me through a supermarket|
|Great to see Aussie carrots for sale|
|A purple chicken!|
|This apparently is the smelliest fruit about, No I didn't try any!|
|The kind of bread my girls like|
|NZ butter - there was always this butter in the hotels at breakfast time|
|When we came out the kids were all enjoying ice cream!|
Armed with balloons, we caught two taxis (the girls in one and the boys in another) to Tai Mei Tuk where we hired 3 bikes and hit the road, what an amazing time and a stunning view!
|And they are off on the bike!|
|Crossing the road|
|Stopping for a photo|
|Time to get out and push up the hill|
|Kate helps to make it up quicker|
|I loved how the water is green on one side and blue on the other|
|And finally made it to the top|
|Phil is puffed!|
|I am not. I forgot to offer to take over the peddling, sorry Craig! :)|
We were all pretty knackered that night, so it was an early night for us with lots of wonderful memories. Thanks Renee & Craig!
