Checking Out Plover Cove and the Bride's Pool

So we recently bought a hiking book so we could better explore the more natural sides of HK. Our first hike was to Plover Cove, created by blocking a sea inlet and and replacing the water with fresh water.

We actually spent about 2.5 hours hiking, most of it up up up through the Pat Sin Leng Nature Trail.

But we saw some lovely trees and streams along the way.

We also saw the Bride's Pool. As the story goes, bride was being carried to her new husband in a sedan chair when one of the bearers slipped on the rocks. Both sedan and bride fell to their deaths. Not a very happy story but quite a pretty spot.
