I got off the bus to hike to Sheding Nature Park, but was sidetracked by a rock of many names. The giant boulder rolled down to the coast from a nearby plateau, and reminded me of Currumbin Rock on Queensland’s Gold Coast.
Although there were people scouring the rocky shoreline, a sign advised not to walk there. The one set of steps down to the rocky platform was boarded up, though it was possible to stoop under the barrier. I wavered by that sign, but decided to forego exploring the site. Instead, I began an up hill hike on a twenty-eight degree day towards my next destination — a nature park within Kenting National Park.
