Ocean Eddy

From three thousand feet up in the air, the blue-green ocean to the south of Hong Kong looked perfectly calm. But note the eddy in the center of the photo just off the island. It was probably caused by the ocean current flowing pass the island. Danger lurks just beneath the surface.

There are numerous small islands like this to the south of Hong Kong, many of which seemingly deserted. Wouldn’t it be neat to buy one as a vacation home?

Sure it is - to have a vacation home, only if you have the leisure to maintain and use it.

I was day-dreaming, of course, pretending I was one of those who are financially "secure" and can afford to retire at 35. :)
