|The promenade along the harbor is very pretty with trees and benches to rest on and admire the view.|
|Aberdeen is a working harbor with lots of fishing and pleasure boats.|
|When Dallas was visiting in Oct. he and l spent some time in Aberdeen. There is not a lot to do there, but it|
is an interesting harbor and fun to walk along the promenade and watch the fishing boats.
|The fishing fleet is not as large as it was in the 70's, as that industry has declined with|
over fishing. There are other industries in Aberdeen such as shipyards, textile factories, warehouses and
engineering works, and of course tourists.
|The free shuttle boat that goes to the Jumbo Kingdom.|
|A sampan bobbing along on the waves.|
|Come aboard a sampan for a cruise among the boats along the harbor.|
|One of the sampan operators had his pet bird hanging from this branch.|
|Our pilot. Many of the operators are older women.|
|Mending fishing nets.|
|Spotted a Samoyed dog on this boat. We have had three Sammie's over the years, and some|
times miss having a dog. There is one living in our complex, but l feel sorry for it every
time l see it in the summer heat.
|The old fashioned straw hats are still worn by many here. These hats are typical of the|
Tanka and Hoklo clans.
|Fish drying in the sun!|
|The hat suits him better than me!!|
|Just liked the Chinese flag blowing in the breeze!|
|There didn't appear to be any rhyme or reason to where boats were moored!|
|Ocean going fishing trawlers. Some of these travel as far away as Malaysia and Philippians.|
|The one on the right is an older sail boat. Like the plants on the other ones deck.|
|Modern pleasure boats coincide along with the traditional working boats.|
|So many people living in such a small area!|
|Checking out the Jumbo Floating Restaurant. We were going to go there for lunch, but the less|
expensive cafe wasn't open till 6 pm and we didn't really want to spend $1000. for lunch!
|I was a little nervous about getting off as it wasn't exactly staying steady!!!|
|After your spin around the harbor you can walk barefoot over this walkway to massage your feet. |
Not really very comfortable!
|Entrance to the main shopping area of Aberdeen Square. Aberdeen is another interesting place that is just right for a day trip.|
