The RockiesHi achan:
Thanks for the post – and glad you like the photos! (several photographers have images in the gallery)
When I first arrived here in 1987, the house you mentioned was unoccupied, partly ruined, but interesting to look around – and to walk through to boulders atop the peninsula. Known as The Rockies – and I heard tales there were supposedly ghosts around.
The RockiesI heard plenty of creepy stories too. One was of a guy who planned to renovate the house and spent the night in its ruins; the next day he was a gibbering wreck who never fully recovered and never said what happened to him. Probably not true but a good yarn.
It was called the Rockies because natural granite boulders were incorporated into the structure of the house, and the place had wonderful views over the South China Sea and towards Lamma and Ling Ding islands. Its replacement, the modern building, is virtually empty – maybe it’s the ghosts…
