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.
