Summer Days in Hong Kong

The cold, rainy weather we’ve had lately has me longingly thinking and wishing for the balmy heat and constant sunshine of the summer days I spent in Hong Kong. Don’t get me wrong, I love winter. I love cold, snowy weather. But rain… you can keep that.

I took this photo while visiting a temple in Lantau Island. It really shows the climate during my stay there. Blue skies with a few clouds. Warm. Green. Tropical. Hong Kong stays pretty warm all year round, but the warmth and clamminess of July is perfect (well… if you like that sort of thing).

This day was truly splendid. The palm trees swaying, a light breeze gusting, the smell of incents wafting through the air… I could do with a little bit of all of that right now.
