Tai Po Lookout Tower
Tai Po Lookout Tower is a large-scale landmark established to mark the transfer of sovereignty of Hong Kong to the PRC in 1997. It is located near the mouth of the Lam Tsuen River and next to the shore of Tolo Harbour, within Tai Po Waterfront Park, in Tai Po, Hong Kong. Unrelated to the named Tai Po Lookout, the Tai Po Lookout Tower is a local tourist attraction; the building is 32.4 metres tall. Visitors can reach the top to enjoy a bird's eye view over Tolo Harbour, the entire Tai Po Waterfront Park and the neighbouring Tai Po Industrial Estate. An inscription on the lower part of the tower describes the rationale for the tower's construction summarised: The inhabitants of the New Territories defended and sacrificed themselves for their own home in the early period when Hong Kong was ceded to Great Britain in 1898, they devoted to the development of the territory and made a great contribution into society after the war time of Hong Kong falling into Japan's hands during the period of time from December 1941 to August 1945.
The inscription points out that the location of the tower is where the British government made a landing when taking over the New Territories. The tower, was built at the same place for the commemoration of the sovereignty handover. Golden Bauhinia Square
A cove is a small type of bay or coastal inlet. Coves have narrow, restricted entrances, are circular or oval, are situated within a larger bay. Small, sheltered bays, creeks, or recesses in a coast are considered coves. Colloquially, the term can be used to describe a sheltered bay. Geomorphology describes coves as precipitously-walled and rounded cirque-like openings as in a valley extending into or down a mountainside, or in a hollow or nook of a cliff or steep mountainside. A cove can refer to a corner, nook, or cranny, either in a river, road, or wall where the wall meets the floor. A notable example is Lulworth Cove on the Jurassic Coast in England. To its west, a second cove, Stair Hole, is forming. Coves are formed by differential erosion, which occurs when softer rocks are worn away faster than the harder rocks surrounding them; these rocks further erode to form a circular bay with a narrow entrance, called a cove.
