On a little island in the South China Sea, this is the time of year when people celebrate Tin Hau. Queen of Heaven and Goddess of the Sea, Tin Hau is the patron saint of fishermen and seafarers.

Today, various local dragon and lion dance groups have been criss-crossing the village and parading up and down the waterfront. This up-in-the-air lion seemed to be giving benefice to the people who live two floors above one of the waterfront's 7-11 stores.
