愛那遠景，昂船洲連著大橋，華景山莊 – 葵涌大窩山上一扇樓房，像老爺爺安穩寬博環抱大地的大帽山。
about 5pm, sun was not set yet, but it started filling the atmosphere an orange glow. the winter dryness swept away many of the pollutants, allowing a nice and clear view of near and far. wiki said that the word ‘praya’ is a colonial term and it is portuguese. older hong kongers like to use the chinese term literally say “sea skin” to refer a promenade by the waterfront. this “english” term with a colonial flavor seems to be a good match of the chinese term.
it is a public cargo working area along this waterfront of the western district. even though there are signs telling people not to loiter around as it could be busy and dangerous, residents in the neighbor always enjoy strolling along this stretch. parents and grandparents bringing along the dear little children, pet lovers walking their dogs, joggers, bikers and photographers love the area too.
from here, the view is great. the long stretch of reclaimed road is the waterfront by the western wholesale food market. further out is the stonecutters island and stonecutters’ bridge. and the majestic hill at the back is tai mo shan.
