This came about when one member shared a video of some seniors going around Taiwan on motorbikes. I commented that it would be easier to cycle in Singapore but since cycling has logistics issues he said why not walk around the island. So the idea was hatched to walk round the island in stages. When we come to the end of one leg we would continue where we left off on the next walk.
|Camping at East Coast Park|
Leg 1 East Coast Park to Marina Bay Sands
We gathered at the Lagoon View bus stop and walked around the condominium to the underpass to gain access to the East Coast Park. We went by the Lagoon and followed the park connector all the way to the Fort Road exit. The weather was excellent but there were few people around this time of the morning. The early morning walkers/joggers have already finished their bit. Just after the Siglap Canal we met up with 2 other members.
|Gardens by The Bay East|
From Fort Road we walked to the Jalan Batu Market and Food Centre at Block 4A behind the 2 petrol stations for lunch. The Tanjong Rhu Wanton Mee was most popular so we had to queue.
|Kite Flying at the Marina Barrage|
We crossed the Marina Barrage and observed that construction was still going on for the west side of the undersea road tunnel. On the rooftop some students were either flying kites or throwing frisbees watched by their teachers.
