More hiking around Singapore!!

Sunday, March 15th, 2015

Over the past two weeks, Naoko and I have done some long walking treks, often about 10 kilometres or so. Here are pictures from a few of them where we took pictures. Zen only came along on the March 15th trek.

March 15th – North Eastern Riverine Loop

Naoko and Zen at Punggol Promenade.

The North Eastern Riverine Loop. We started from the starting point at 7:30, and by about 10:00 we’d made it to Punggol Point at the top. Unfortunately, the walk beyond that is full of construction and won’t be a nice place to explore for a couple of years yet. More information here.

There’s something oddly lobster-like about this tree… a lobster with green hair!!

This island is called “Coney Island” here, but on other maps it’s called Serangoon Island.
