belated Hong Kong post: seeing the big buddha again

Before I got so sick in Hong Kong, we were able to one fun thing--visit the Big Buddha! Seeing the Big Buddha was definitely a highlight on my last trip so I'm really glad I got to go again, this time bringing the Sasquatch and Rain Dragon!

It was a lot colder and mistier than last time though:

But that just gave the Big Buddha more ambiance: 

Last time, I was wearing a short sleeve shirt and was looking much more stylish:

But I think I accessorized better this time:

And when I went up last time, I had a lot less weight to carry:

But I think I carry that extra 20 pounds or so pretty well, don't you think?

I think the Big Buddha was happy to see us! I know I was really happy to see him again.

Because he has a beautiful view:

It's inspired what I think may be the title of my new novel! But, I won't share it just yet...

Right now, I'm going to keep it a secret between me and the Big Buddha.
