Heavenly Hong Kong hats

I stopped over in Hong Kong for a few days on my way home to Australia. I stay with lovely friends who live in Mid Levels. This is their view.

The shops in Hong Kong are dressed for spring and looking wonderful. I was very impressed with a spectacular hat display at Lane Crawford in the IFC building.

The hats were continued throughout the store teamed with new season clothes.

    • Funny you should say that. The view from the back of the apartment is mountains. Eagles swoop down and fly between the buildings. I love cityscapes and oceans just as much as I love mountain views.
