野柳は風景特定区に指定されている海辺の1.7kmほどの岬の自然公園。波や風化による侵食が作り上げた奇岩の地質風景が 広がる。侵食は今も絶え間無く自然の営みに抗えず進んでいる。この地の代表的奇岩である「女王の頭」も年々形状が変化していてあと20年ほどで無くなってしまうだろうと予測されている。多くの人が長蛇をなしてその女王と写真におさまろうと並んでいる。この日はおりからの雨で足元が悪く、海辺の道は波の飛沫で濡れ、あちこちで人が転倒。私たちは女王まで行かず、遠くから拝謁、撮影をおゆるしいただいた。

出口に並ぶ海産物通りには魅力的なおつまみ類を扱う店の通りがある。山ほど買い込んで帰国後、鉄観音茶、紹興酒と合わせて皆に喜ばれた。


Yehliu is a cape, New Taipei, Taiwan.The cape, known by geologists as the Yehliu Promontory, forms part of the Daliao Miocene Formation. It stretches about 1,700 metres into the ocean and was formed as geological forces pushed Datun Mountain out of the sea.

A distinctive feature of the cape is the hoodoo stones that dot its surface. These shapes can be viewed at the Yehliu Geopark. A number of rock formations have been given imaginative names based on their shapes. The best known is the "Queen's Head" Other formations include the "Fairy Shoe", the "Beehive", the "Ginger Rocks", and the "Sea Candles". These interesting formations are perpetually exposed to natural erosion. They are afraid of the symbolic Queen's Head destroyed in the coming 20 years. We paid respect to the Queen from a distance because so many people were in a line for their photos with the Queen. Instead we dropped by the alley with shops of marine products unique to Taiwan near the exit of the Park. I bought three big bagfuls of them that made my family and friends very happy later at home along with Guanyin Tea and Shaoxing wine.
