Anthony 潘漢雄 對 Henry 胡國亨 '一年一度一良宵' 首詩有以下評價,
" 謝謝 Henry大作，情深詞雅，性情中人也！我也來應景，附庸風雅，隨意拍攝並題詩，續貂之作，難入法眼！"
Palm Spring, California
We had a wonderful 20 day road trip with Gary and Lola after they picked us up from our hotel in L.A. We stopped at Palm Spring for a couple of nights and drove through Joshua Tree National Park and the Mojave Desert across to Arizona. Truthful to its name, Palm Spring is an oasis full of palms made famous by Hollywood film stars somewhere in the middle of the Mojave Desert in California. The Park is punctuated with outcrops of rocks and spare vegetation such as the Joshua Tree and the Teddy-bear cholla. Palm trees are seen wherever there is an oasis and human habitation. We stayed in Palm Spring for 2 days with daily excursions into the desert where we did trail hiking.
London Bridge and Lake Havasu, Arizona
Continuing on the desert road and crossing the Californian border into Arizona, out of nowhere came a town called London Bridge. Spanned across the banks of a section of Lake Havasu it was re-assembled from bricks transported all the way from London! To make the surroundings more English, there is a fountain flanked by English Lions and even an old English red phone box nearby. We walked across the Bridge and wondered how pioneers could think of this idea to liven up the town. There is a ferry which takes people across Lake Havasu to California and the ticket only costs $2. Little wonder that the destination is a casino. We didn't have lunch there because at my request I asked for the opportunity to try out the hamburger jaunt, In and Out. I was not disappointed as it tasted quite different to MacDonald’s and much more substantial.
