I actually visited Labrador Nature Reserve a few weeks ago- but I had exams so I could not post about it. Here it is!
We entered from the main entrance near the Labrador MRT. The park welcomed us with its rich tall canopy trees as we walked past the Olive Restaurant and the ‘Secret Tunnel’.
Then we went through the boardwalk in the forest.It was very calming and refreshing. On the way, we stopped to admire some fallen trees when I spotted a huge web with a HUMONGOUS spider. I have to admit I screamed with surprise and stepped back. But it didn’t seem to care- so I took some close up pictures of it. Like this spider’s we saw several more webs that we didn’t spot unless we concentrated and cringed our eyes. I don’t know the name of this spider. If you know the species, please leave a comment below as I’d love to know.
We then followed the Bunker Path to the 6-pound cannon that was used during the 2nd world war. There was also a little tunnel that was dated 1892. Wow!
That was end of the boardwalk in the forest. Throughout, there were the rhythmic chirping of cicadas and the sweet songs of the birds that I enjoyed so much. We exited the forest and entered the boardwalk near the sea. The sea was beautiful- except for the numerous number of ships and tankers 😦 The shelters in the park had very cute paintings and I greatly admired the trees and flowers in the park.
The jetty was closed, but we enjoyed a game of badminton and ball. Some common kingfishers joined us too. High in the sky we also saw a huge bird I thought was a crane- but after looking at the photos I took, it looked more like an eagle or kite.
Here are some photos of the flowers and trees near the jetty.
With that we ended our visit to Labrador Nature Reserve. I hope you visit this park soon. It’s perfect for a stroll, to exercise, to have a picnic or barbecue, or for a nature/bird watching.
I hope you enjoyed this post.. More to come!
