[Simonseries] Hobbies Bobby Ep6: MacRitchie Reservoir, again!!

Hello Claire’s readers,

Due to certain circumstances, I frequent this area these couple of months. And if the weather and time permits, I would take a walk at the park. I hope its not too boring!! But its certainly not for me!

I really love to be surrounded with lush greenery even though I am a certified bug magnet, I dunno why but they really loved me (or my blood). And even though I come to the same place all the time, I always find something new here! Like a certain tree which I thought was a rain tree was actually a saga tree! They are similar leaves arrangements and I wasn’t skilled enough to identify them accurately. Damned if i love these places so much I should’ve joined nparks when I had the chance many years back. Zzz…

Anyways, the weather recently had been eccentric (since when it isn’t like that here) and the hot sun is out after a mid afternoon downpour. The humidity was maxed-out saturated, I was sweating like mad even though I was just strolling in a leisurely pace. Or maybe its just the weight of my backpack…

I went up to my favourite trail, its my favourite maybe due to it being secluded, its always deserted when I come here. I hate crowded places. This path circles around the back of all those canoe sheds and at this timing there would always be lots of people rowing their canoes, or is it kayak? Sorry I don’t know the difference. I don’t know what they think of a single guy with a camera along the ridge overlooking them. Nah they probably couldn’t care less.

Anyways everything is still wet and luckily I rubbed on insect repellent so although they all came buzzing around me, they didn’t bite.

Fwah so hot and humid and I’m roasting up in the sun (I have photosensitivity due to the meds I’m on..) I was surprised to see the vapour rising up on the water, so after I left I went back again to take more shots. But aiyah I don’t know how to take a better shot of it..

Oh well, its getting late and I really wanted to go home now.. and so I went and cool my roasted skin down.

Ciao people, take care.

Simon
