So we decided to say a little prayer for good weather, and went ahead with our little excursion to Hort Park.
The urban garden looks aesthetically pleasing at eye level, however the juxtaposition of backdrop of office buildings along Alexander Road felt a little jarring against the lush greenery of the park.
I suppose it's just the idealist in me speaking. My concern sure didn't bug the insects anyhow, since we spotted plenty of butterflies, centipedes, dragonflies, beetles, which were thriving in the urban garden.
The little guy 'caught' the photography bug from me, and was trigger happy clicking away with my old canon ixus.
Every once in a while, he striked a dramatic pose for my camera
We spotted a shady canopy with wooden chairs and decided that we will have the picnic there
My little photographer spotted a centipede
While walking back, we went into the Bamboo Labyrinth. The Bamboo Labyrinth is made up of a series of circular paths enclosed within a grove of bamboos. When he asked me what was that place for, I told him that people could do exercise and chi-gong there. He then striked a few kung fu poses, raised his arms for his chi-gong stance.
We walked towards Alexander Arch and wanted to venture further to Henderson Waves, but turned back when the drizzle got heavier. K ended up feeding the fishes at the pond near the entrance of the Park.
There was a periodic light drizzle the whole morning, but it sure didn't dampen our fun. In fact, we enjoyed the light cool breeze that accompanied the drizzle. It will otherwise be too humid and hot on a typical late morning.
