Rock Carvings in Hong Kong by Wm. Meacham. His book mentioned this "Lover's Stone" located in Waichai, about midway on Bowens Road and, conveniently, above my hotel. I walked there by showing the picture in the book and asking people "where is this?" - five highway workers, two policeman and one jogger later, I found it.
The author says that this rock is a folk shrine popular with "women seeking a husband, childless couples and old women desirous of grand children". I think it is fairly obvious what this "Lover's Stone" reminds Grandmother about. I think many of the amazing Hong Kong office buildings in the background pretty much tell the same story. In any case, it was a perfect Hong Kong day for me. Thanks for the encouragement. -Gary
