We walked for almost three hours

There were a couple of additions to our parks and we took the opportunity to see them and have some family time. There was the Henderson Wave (300m bridge) connecting Mount Faber to Telok Blangah Hill. And the forest walk or nature trail (1.3km) in Telok Blangah Hill to the Alexandra Arch. The end of Alexandra Arch is the Hort Park. We intend to visit the park another day as it was quite a long walk for Georgia. The entire walk to and fro took us about three hours with the little one. I brought along homemade chocolate chip cookies and we ate them during our walk. The sky was kinda grey today and although it was not that great for taking photos, it was really pleasant to walk. Georgia did complained at the beginning (as always) and later she enjoyed it so much! She saw lots of birds, both local and migratory ones. We saw a mummy bird feeding to her young. Lots of squirrels, insects and the plants. It was a great science excursion for Georgia today. She asked loads of questions and we tried our best to answer. When she got home, I asked her to draw all the things that she saw in her little journal. I hope to go there again in the future during the night as it would be lovely to see and take photos of the bridge with their colourful lights!
