Chek Jawa boardwalk open!

Category : Singapore Naturalist

We bailed on cycling with Ling, met Z at 6am, cabbed down with Ladybug. Why? Breakfast and conversation! Was nice to see familiar faces stream in to grab breakfast and later at House No. 1. A few Toddycats as well, which was really nice to see.

What was the wet weather plan, someone asked when furious storms clouds gathered. "Why, get wet," I said. We signed in early and trunlded down in a familiar bouncing van, the drivers all old friends. So different from every other time. This time a launch!

Yaketty-yak, checked our House No. 1, then found myself with Leo Tan, walking the Coastal Loop the reverse way. We bumped into Ladybug somehow and we then we strolled and enjoyed ourselves. Leo has the perceptive of an educator, researcher and public servant so it was fun to exchange impressions and it was positive. We ran into the Toddycats and I introduced them to him. Of course they all had charming smiles but were all tongue-tied of course. I must tell them stories some day, especially Kok Sheng, who is in research and will later be in education.

Vilma enthusiastically informed us about a krait in the mangroves and were amused at her enthusiasms. Yeah, but later we were probably just as excited, speculating how the poor snake ended up there! Kok Sheng has a nice photo on his blog.

I went armed with only my handphone, trusting I will get some from others. Ladybug's Casio's battery conked, sheesh! We were too busy interacting and enjoying the boardwalk (and stuffing their faces, according to Z) but all our half-baked photos are up and tagged with cj070707. Ria and Kok Sheng wrote interesting accounts on their blogs and all links are in Habitatnews.

I'll be back there with Pedal Ubin, and other friends, and geet a view of the area from the tower. Really keen to see that view and hope its built high enough. Can have fun comparing that view to Google Earth's close up!
