Sitting in front of this Tin Hau Temple (temple of the goddess of the sea), I sketched a friend standing in front of a joss stick tripod. Behind her was the Saam Ka Village, a village built along the shoreline at the entrance to Victoria Harbour. On the right was a rocky cliff adorned with two rusty ancient cannons facing the sea.

The temple was built in 1960 and because the site is next to a stream, the temple was designed to look like a ship. The temple is a Buddhist temple and it is dedicated to the Goddess of Mercy, however, most locals just call it the "ship temple".
