A Solitary Ramble


Stewart Goes Walkies is fortunate to have a contribution from one of our readers ‘B’.

‘B’ is a solitary soul who loves his country walks in private. He particularly enjoys that silence that he finds in nature. We can fully appreciate his attitude as no doubt, like us, many of your walks have been ruined by noisy hikers, some of whom insist on listening to music on their phones as they walk.

We are grateful to ‘B’, who is a keen photographer, for sending us these photos of his recent walk in Shatin.

Ascending into the hills

A Private Garden


While private gardens such as this one are not common, several of them can be seen in many of the hill areas around the New Territories.

They are usually set up by older gentlemen, frustrated farmers from the nearby housing estates. All the tools and materials for the shelter have to be carried in on their backs.

Running water and bird song

There is nothing more relaxing than the sound of running water combined with bird song.


The following video is from a walk in the Lam Tsuen Valley but certainly illustrates the magic we can find when we make the effort to get back to the nature that surrounds us.




Stewart Goes Walkies is very grateful to our friend, ‘B’ for supplying these photos and his brief description. Trees, flowers, birds, and running water, all these things combine to provide one of the most relaxing environments imaginable.
