This morning was an excellent day to go to East Coast Park. It was hot but there was a steady strong breeze and there was also a Triathlon event taking place by the sea. It did not interfere with our enjoyment of East Coast Park because it looked like a pretty well-organised event with marshalls directing athletes along the way.

We came across some delightful mosaic sculptures and this particular one looks like a kind of tribal shield.

I like this set of pillars giving a feel of the antiquity in our modern landscape.

This one by the same sculptor looks like a satellite dish.
Beautiful glazed pieces of mosaic underneath.

A row of Asoka trees lining the canal.

A fir tree by the beach? Amazing things do happen.

Cannonball trees dripping with fruits.

What the inside of the fruit looks like. Someone must have hacked it open.

A group of Indian teenagers enjoying themselves - I like this photo very much.
The Marina Bay Sands Hotel in the distance.

Coconut trees responding to the breeze.

Walking towards the Food Centre.
A lovely environment marred by rubbish.

Trees that looked like they were wearing skirts.

Cold dessert at the Food Centre! End of East Coast Park visit.
