During the Valentines Day holiday trip  R and I drove up to  Keelong City  基隆市. I’ve always love visiting the seaside and experience the sea breeze blowing  in my face.

We drove from Shifen Waterfall Park  to Keelong as it was on the way. The journey didn’t take too long and we manage to find the place following the GPS in the car.

The last time I saw unusual  rock formations was in Jeju island  where we saw the Jusangjeolli Cliffs.  These formations were spread out over a bigger area as compared to those cliffs.

This particular rock formation required some vivid imagination on the part of the viewer to see how “turtle” it looked like.

The pavilion made a good resting spot to sit and admire the scenery. We didn’t really spend much time there when we were there as I was more keen to view the whole area.

We only stopped long enough to snap some pictures and a wefie.

While admiring the scenery we saw  this parasailer moving near the rocks. He had a motor attached to the back of his  set up and was able to control how high or low he flew.  I would love to try parasailing one day but not sure if I will do solo like  this parasailer.

There were many  unusual rock formations around and people ventured out onto the rock formation for a closer look. R and I however kept to the path as I didn’t want slip while being on the rock as the ground was rather wet.

    What fascinating scenery – I live by the shoreline and there are rock formations for sure – but nothing as fantabulous as this!!! YAM xx

  3. Very impressive picture, love the views, I would love to have the opportunity one day to visit this place. Everything about it seems so lovely.
    Thanks for sharing!

  4. Love your formations. I recently found out that they are called concretions here in New Zealand. They are so interesting to see and your imagination can tell some great stories about them.

  5. Nice rock formations and I would love to stay in that Pavilion. So far, I’ve visited Kapurpurawan Rock Formations here in the Philippines.

  6. The sea rock formations I’ve seen are from long, long time ago. The latest rock formations I’ve seen are from the desserts of Saudi Arabia about 3 years ago.
