Victoria Peak

Hong Kong
November 5, 2016

< < previous | next > >

While Jen & I were touring Hong Kong, those daughters we raised were together touring Boston and Portsmouth! Emily had flown up to Boston for a weekend with Ellie at Emerson, and they had rented a car to explore the North Shore and beyond.

We raised 'em right!

We took the funicular up the hill to Victoria Peak. But for white-knuckle thrills, nothing beat the ride down the mountain, a window seat on the upper level of a double-decker bus that hugged the edge of the winding road and seemed sure of flipping over the precipice at every turn.

In the evening, we boarded one of the red-sailed junks for a booze cruise around Victoria Harbour, a perfect way to say good bye to Hong Kong, until next time.
