Hello Edward,
Nice place in fact. This round stone has been formed naturally? It is the only one in this place? Is this due to the water? You can add some information on the place. I aggre that it is an interesting place.
Well done.

Thank you for your attention. Yes, the round stones are natural (as it says science). And this place is very interesting. Information about this place there is an article in the Wikipedia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yehliu:

Yehliu
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search
Yehliu is a geological curiosity.

Yehliu (野柳) is a cape on the north coast of Taiwan, between Taipei and Keelung. The cape is 1,700 meters long and is formed by the Datun Mountain (大屯山) stretching into the sea. It is located in Wanli Township, Taipei County. It is famous for the curious shapes carved by sea erosion. These shapes can be viewed at the Yeliu Geopark operated by the North Coast and Guanyinshan National Scenic Area Administration. Several rock formations have been named for their shapes. The most well-known of these is the "Queen's head". Others include "Fairy's Shoe", "Bee's Hive", "Ginger Rocks" and "Sea Candles."

Thanks,
Edward
