Snorkelling, Hong Kong style


On your next trip to the seaside, see if you can spot these unusual specimens:

1. The amphibious hiker
Full hiking gear - check. Umbrella - check. Snorkel/mask in hand - check. Thigh deep in the sea - check. Hesitating about going in past the crotch line - check.


2. The survival snorkeller
Actually swimming - check. Face in the water - check. Waterproof backpack of survival gear in tow - check. Bulletproof lifevest protecting said survival gear pack - check.


3. The incognito picnicking frogwoman
Baseball cap - check. Periscope - check. Drinking water supplies - check. Towel carefully positioned so as to stay dry - check. Kickboard-cum-floating picnic table - check. Preparation for any, and I mean absolutely any, eventuality - big check.

家人


家人 = ga yan: family

Certain hiking trails around Hong Kong are designated as 'Family Walks' by the AFCD. This usually means the path is stroller accessible and/or generally easy. Assuming you don't fall into the water or disturb the sleeping bulls of course.
