《 HK Peng Chau revisited 》__ Rose Ho

不用去看老媽的日子、拿起背囊、一瓶水、一帽子、太陽眼鏡;穿休閒便服、一雙舒服的鞋子;帶“八達通”、少許零錢、一個手機、輕輕鬆鬆的跑到離島去走一天是多寫意。

來回船資四元、加上車錢也不過是八元。肚子餓了便吃自己喜歡的東西。很久不敢吃的生冷食物如冰糕條因天氣熱也吃、還是要好牌子兼有朱咕力皮的那種。看藍天白雲、青山綠水、峻石秀沙、耳根清靜、身心寧怗、邊行邊用相機砌圖、慢漫的步伐作足部動作、多開心。

尋找快樂是不用多花錢的。

背囊多「補」、他人怎樣看法我不管。它輕盈、人生不用多包袱。

倒數之年、只要不損人之事想做就去做。

星期一那天再續坪洲之遊。

請跟我欣賞第一次踏足的坪愉徑和大利島及一些其他景點。

那天亦是我女兒三十六歲生日。沒有及時送上祝福給她。就讓我在這遙遠祝福這新媽媽心想事成、萬事順境。

On days I am not visiting my mother, I love to wander off to the outlying islands.

Light casual clothing, a pair of comfortable shoes, a hat, sunglasses, a bottle of water, the Octopus card, some small change, my iPhone camera…and my knapsack…then go!    Nothing heavy, nothing fancy.  Travel light, travel burden-free.

Total return trip, ferry and bus..only $8.  When hungry, I will buy myself goodies I love to eat.  Nowadays in the hot weather, I even go for ice cream, something freezing cold that I had abstained for a long time.  I would buy a quality brand and even look for bars with chocolate coating too.

Wandering along at a leisurely pace, I am not only exercising my legs, but also enjoying the solitude and peace of ear and mind.  Blue skies, white clouds, green mountain, turquoise water, fine sand, picturesque rocks…composing my pictures as I go.  Nothing can be more enjoying in life than this.

Often it does not take much money to find happiness and tranquility.

A patched and repatched ugly knapsack.  Who cares?  It is light and functional.  I do not need burdens.

At this stage of counting down in life, I would go for the life I want….and in a carefree way too….so long it does not hurt others.

The past Monday…I returned to Peng Chau which I skipped the last time on my visit to the Trappist Monastery.

Here I would like share the Peng Yu Path and the Tai Lei Island with you, both places I’ve not been before…. A few other spots as well.

That day was also my daughter’s 36th birthday.  This mother had not sent her a birthday wish in a timely manner.  So here I make up for it…

A belated birthday wish to my daughter overseas, her first birthday as a mother.  May her wishes come true and may she have a happy healthy life.
