I had signed up for an over night trip, so in the early morning, we boarded a bus headed for Lantau Island (the largest outlying island of Hong Kong). Along the way we stopped at the Tsing Yi viewing platform to view the recently completed Tsing Ma Bridge (1997), which at the time was the longest suspension bridges in the world. Now, it is the ninth longest bridge of it's kind in the world.

Our drive continued into the mountains with our  next stop at the Po Lin Monastery, a major center of Buddhism in Hong Kong.  There we marveled at Tian Tan Buddha, the largest outdoor bronze Buddha in the world, standing at 26 meters (85 feet) high.  The Buddha is situated at the top of a mountain, sitting on a lotus, with a massive staircase, with 268 stairs leading up to the base.  Surrounding the base of the Buddha were six smaller bronze statues called "The Offering of the Six Devas" that are posed with offerings.  Offerings include flowers, incense, lamp, ointment, fruit, and music which symbolize the six perfections of generosity, morality, patience, zeal, meditation, and wisdom, all of which are needed for enlightenment.

After our tour and a quick visit to the museum, we enjoyed a vegetarian lunch onsite before continuing on our way.  We made a quick stop at a picturesque village called Tai O,  just before our arrival at Cheung Sha Beach known for it's white sand.  We enjoyed some time relaxing at the beach and some of our group even went swimming.  After a while, we headed to the YMCA youth camp for dinner and a restful evening.

I sometimes forget that L.A. has a major port. The size and sprawl of the place can detach some of us inner city dwellers from the sea. Luckily, there’s the waterfront communities of San Pedro and Wilmington , and the Vincent Thomas Bridge to help remind us that we live off of a giant ocean. 
The Vincent Thomas Bridge was built in 1963 and named after the long-serving California assemblyman from San Pedro who championed its construction. It’s the only suspension bridge in the world supported entirely on piles (long poles  hammered into soft soil beneath the bridge until they reach a hard layer of compacted soil or rock). It’s  also the only suspension bridge in the greater L.A. area, the fourth-longest suspension bridge in California, and the 76th longest span in the world. It’s been featured in numerous films and tv shows like Mission:Impossible, Leathal Weapon 2, Charlie’s Angels, Chips, to name a few. It’s sadly also the scene of many suicides, some of notable celebrities like film director Tony Scott. Larry Andreasen , 1964 Olympic diving bronze medalist, was killed attempting to set a world diving record by jumping from the west tower. 
To end on a lighter note, the bridge will soon be joined by another large span to its east. The completion of the new cable-stayed Gerald Desmond Bridge is expected at the end of this year. For more info on it, click here @newgdbridge #SanPedro #Wilmington #LosAngeles

🇪🇸 Puente Colgante, Bilbao, Spain, July 2018
The suspension bridge connects Portugalete and Las Arenas in the municipality of Getxo near Bilbao. The oldest floating ferry in the world, which stands in the middle of a residential area (pic 2), is held together by two 63-metre high masts. You can also cross the river high above the ferry (pic 3). Breathtaking!
❗️ As can be seen from the date, these are older photos. Of course I am not travelling at the moment but #StayAtHome ❗️

Since home quarantine has made us look back and appreciate the beautiful old memories, here's an image that was taken in year 2017 by me from a different perspective.
This bridge is built along the lines of the  lachman jhula in  Rishikesh.
