[ 基隆 ] Unearthly Shoreline of Strange Rocks


On the Peace Island (和平島), if you walk further and closer to the shore, you’ll find there seem to be an endless shoreline of rocks protruding in strange shapes and locations due to erosion. It will give you goose bumps and think you have gone to an un-earth-like place. Some of these rocks are nicknamed with interesting names (eg. “Tofu Rocks” or “Crocodile”.. ) You can see more of the photos in this entry by clicking the link right after this (at the left hand corner).

We walked along this trail by the shore almost close to noon time so the place was QUITE hot! Even with an umbrella above me, I felt like I was going to get cooked alive. But we were glad that there weren’t many people around (maybe because it’s a weekday we seemed to be the “ONLY” one there). That way, we could take more pretty landscape photos minus the Bypasser A; Tourist B or etc.


The sea water looks so clear and the rocks are sandy (hence the slightly yellow/brown color). It was slippery to walk on these if you don’t have a proper shoe with some grip.


The whole seashore seems to be one endless stripe of these rocks.


These rocks look like tiny (or rather big) mushrooms!


Some how ths photo gives me goose bumps. Their color and the way they appear to “pop out” reminds me of pimples…. Sorry to destroy the beautful imagery here. xP
The 3 tall chimneys in the distant are part of a huge Power House. These were the tallest architecture in Taiwan until Taipei 101 took the title over.


We found a fish!!
Well.. it’s more like just the shape only. & We took so many group pictures around it! 😀


Theres a small “cave” under the pavilion!


I hope you can tell it was pretty sunny! It looks like we’re walking on some desert!


Did you lose your shoe here?


This is one of my favourite shots!


Some said this look like a Taiwanese “Red Turtle Cake” (紅龜粿) with the shiny color (of paint) and the round shape.


Pavilion above the crazy rocks that offers a spectacular view of the ocean and the “Chicken Basket Island” (基隆嶼).

MORE TO COME!!…….
