Sai Kung Yim Tin Tsai Cafe 西貢鹽田梓村露天茶座


It was a great afternoon spent on Yim Tin Tsai Island with Magi, another Sai Kung sketcher. Yim Tin Tsai is a tiny rural island off Sai Kung Town which is famous for its well-preserved Catholic chapel, the salt farm, the largely abandoned Catholic village and its rural environment. I spent two hours sketching the visitors at the outdoor cafe near the pier while having traditional 'tea cakes' and 'cupcakes'. The lights and shadows were wonderful on this dry sunny day and it's a joy to capture them on location. As we were about to finish our sketches, we met two sketchers from Urban Sketchers Belgium who were sightseeing on the island. It's sad that we could not sketch with them as we had to catch the returning boat soon.
