Coney Island 2016.3.20

I was hoping to see the reluctant celebrity (a lonely cow/brahman bull) on Coney Island actually, but end up found a group of naughty monkeys...According to NP, " The cow on Coney Island is a free-roaming Brahman that has made its home in the park." No one know how it came to this island alone...
In this newly opened natural park, there are wild boars, monkey, stray dogs around too. I saw a group of stray dogs around the grassland near the beach last year. 

Well this time, I was taking a short walk around the west entrance near Punggol Point Park/Punggol Settlement, very relaxing scenery not we can see everyday . Coastal forests, grasslands, mangroves, and casuarina woodlands, birds watching and more...


Natural wonders...

I stopped at the beach area watching a big family of monkeys...The monkeys turn fairly violent and snatch a bottle of 100plus from one of the visitors, which he kept in his backpack.



The Coney Island is much larger than what I expected, there are still lots to see.  Would definitely visit again one day to try to find the cow and try to spot more wildlife! Come back soon...

Today's Flowers: ...Of My Memory

...Not sure what does it call, but I love the red against the background.
August is over in another 2 days.
There is no season changing here in Singapore, a bit boring.
life, and four seasons are hot summer days
I miss Autumn...

The weathered benches sits,
empty by the evening beach,
they left after quarrel.

Summer Trip 2015: Luoyang Bridge

My interest is to visit all sorts of bridges during my travel time, especially those old bridges. No exception for this summer trip, though I have been here many years ago. 

Luoyang bridge is one of the four most famous ancient bridges in China. It is located not far from Quanzhou city, it takes about 20 minutes drive from center city. Evening time will be the best to visit the place,  you can walk from one end to the other, it is not really tourist area for now, so there are many local people crossing the bridge, many interesting scenes...well I will post up in another post. Here I would just like to show some photos of this old bridge which was built in 1057 still standing proud till now. 

Triangular slabs of stones were placed on one side of the bridge pointing against the flow of water in order to divert and lessen the impact of the tides. I was told live oysters were placed in the cracks so that natural secretions became a biological super-glue!
