Discovering a Scenic Spot

Checking out the scenic spot for sunsets
This morning was another gorgeous day after a terrible week of rain. We decided to go for a walk along Victoria Road in Kennedy Town and check out the scenery there.

It's right by the water where some men try to catch fish
Under blue skies and hardly any clouds, we walked along as many buses and taxis passed by us because today is Qing Ming, the sweeping of the graves. All the buses were very full going up and coming down.

Just before we reached Mount Davis Road, there was a sign pointing to a hut saying it was a good place to watch the sunset. So we decided to check it out, going down several flights of stairs that zigzagged their way down towards the water.

Along the way we saw chunks of discarded flooring that should have belonged to tong lau flats... who put them there and why?

A small hut where visitors can hang out
When we made it to the bottom there were a bunch of Filipino women hanging out in the hut on their day off, while right by the water were two locals trying their hand at fishing.

It was a nice spot and well worth the effort to come down, though not much to do after you get there unless you do intend to have a mini picnic.

Strange to see discarded flooring dumped here
We can imagine it's a great place to watch sunsets, though with me being loved by mosquitoes I'd probably be eaten alive by them at dusk...!

    Go in the non mosquito months then -- or just spray some bug spray on yourself! ;b

    1. Hi YTSL -- which is why I'm glad I went there now instead of when it gets hotter!
