Hello I'm a 23yr HK veteran, with (what I consider) a good amateur enthuisiasts understanding of nature and HK trails. I'm 37 and large framed, and also overweight. But I get about enough, could still make it up Sunset Peak but would need a bit more than the sunset as incentive. I love nature with the only thing keeping me from my dream job in the Amazon being the though of sticking my hand in a rotten tree stump to see whats there. What I really love is water, I would walk almost anywhere for a good rockpool. I'll get as sweaty and tired as I need to if I could have a few hours in clear cool swirling water (maybe cool enough to cool down a can of beer!). I'm environmentally friendly and will avoid the WSD catchments if possible (where not I keep them clean). Which leads me nicely into the main reason for this post (apart from saying hello).
In 20 years I swam in about 6-8 HK rockpools. Although some I virtually made a second home of. But in the last 3 years, my brother and I have (with the help of Hong Kong Waterfalls website [sadly, now no more - Martin]) found and swam in 20-30. This year unfortunately my brother will be unable to accompany me. But I'm loathe to go back to the lazy years. With the heat slowly approaching, are there perhaps persons who would like to spend a couple (or more) weekends this summer jumping off rocks and snorkelling hidden pools. Safety is my priority, and friendliness. I'll call a route unsafe before most, and I avoid real danger. If anyones interested or would just like to say hello or discuss their favourite pools, please post.
