Work Freedom Day 13 – Exploring Lower Pierce Reservoir

on June 14, 2017

4pm…..34C temperatures cooling a little in the late afternoon, I felt it was the perfect time to explore lil red dot again with my parents.

We visited the heritage trail of Lower Pierce Reservoir that was completed in 1910 and the reservoir was constructed by the British in such a way that it branched across Kallang River. 

A rather faded plaque that describes the history of Lower Pierce Reservoir.

Mum was intrigued by this bush that bore red flowers.

It has been a while since I have seen Bracken Fern going in its natural habitat.

Flanked by the natural forestation, I saw heavily dug up grounds by wild boars that scavenged for food at night and a troop of long tail monkeys ripping off food from the vegetation along the reservoir hedges. One even posed for me!

Cheekily on close up….here’s looking at you babe!😉

Nature at its best!
