Things I've photographed recently.

Hikewise it was a case of trying to do the Ho Pui Family Walk with photos this week, but I did do some other stuff, too.

One of my friends asked a while ago if there were still horses in Discovery Bay, as he is thinking of bringing his children over to see them. The horses are owned by Discovery Bay Resorts and were used for carriage rides and as wedding carriages for brides- there is a wedding chapel next to the Auberge Hotel here.

I realised I hadn't seen the horses around for quite a while. Had they fallen foul of covid? So since their field is behind one of our beaches and not far from the supermarket, I went to have a look when I was going shopping. I was pleased to see the horses were there, happily munching away on their grass. I had a walk along the beach, too since I was there and noticed there are still people camping there even though it's getting a lot colder. In the distance I could see the Tiger's Head that did my leg in.

After I broke my phone, my generous husband gave me one of his, so I took it out for a walk to test out its camera. To do this I just wandered around Siena Park, Discovery Bay. There are beautiful plants and views there. It is always a pleasant place for a walk.

Today, since I wanted to shop in Tsing Yi, I decided to take another walk in Tsing Yi Park and find out if the trees near the pond had finally become autumnal - or not. In fact, I can say they have finally changed colours and are now looking fairly orange. Several old men were out for a stroll and walking their pet birds. I photographed one bird that was enjoying a swing on the trees.

Irene, The red flowers are beautiful, broken phone or borrowed. Alec.

Hi Alec, for such a built up place, Hong Kong certainly has plenty of nature. All the best.

What a peculiar thing to do, "walk" your pet bird..I think the turtles get more out of their walks than those birds in the gage..
Beautiful walk as always! :)

Hi Henna, it's really common for people to walk their pet birds here. I've seen this is in Macau and Mainland China, too. They take their birds for a walk and hang them on trees to give them air.

As always I enjoy looking at your photos. I have not been here very often this past year. Time to catch up with back posts.

I loved the bird walking. I used to take my budgie on vacation. Drove my mother crazy traveling with a bird. He was not a quiet little fellow; he talked constantly.

Hi Sally, I love to see that and tortoise walking. Also fun to observe. Can't remember if I've said Happy New Year to you or not, so Happy New Year.
