Tom,
Nice photo of Victoria Harbour. If you get there again near Christmas time, the Harbour is lit with enough lights to glow brightly! Somewhere in the forum, I have a pano of the Harbour taken a couple of years ago. I grew up there.
The Oregon coast is likewise beautiful. Canon Beach is a popular place for tourist. In Newport, try Mo's clam chowder.
I went to school in Oregon.
Photos of both places bring back memories. I'll be returning to HK in a few days, I may go to Kowloon to take another pano of the Harbour again.
You have a lot of photos of all over the world, beautiful ones, too! Keep feeding us.

Envy you returning to Hong Kong, one of my favorite places. I was a 747 Captain for 15 years and flew all over the world, but HKG was always a favorite to explore. I am retired from that now but involved in other things, if not so far afield. My gal's brother has a place at Neskowin and my son went to school in Eugene. I always laughed in HKG when the temp would hit the mid 60's and everyone was bundled up in down coats! I have been there for some of the big fireworks displays and also the famous laser light shows.

Cheers: Tom

Tom,
Now I understand all the photos you took of the many places posted here.
Since you're an airline pilot, a Captain, too, you still have the privilege of flying on your company's plane at little to no cost. And, non of the pressure and responsibility of its captaincy. Now, go and enjoy life to the fullest and travel the world like you never did. Oh, don't forget tomphotograph the wonderful places.
I'm now in NZ., South Island and saw some awesome places, really open my eyes! I've a few more days here, and today, I went along the southern coastal scenic routes, just incredible. I'll have a few pix here later.
When I was growing up in HK., we thought that 10 C was cold, and indeed, it is when you have no central air at home. Then, it is also a fashion statement these days to wear heavy coats, fancy coats at that. When my wife came over (in Corvallis), she initially wore woolen caps even to bed. Now, she's totally used to below freezing, even with wind chill.
Hope to see more of your photos.
Cheers from Invercargill, for tonight.

Very nice shot Pookie. I love the reflection and the yellow color in the back ground.
