Leia at Marina

This saturday afternoon, we spent our time at Marina Barrage and Children’s Garden.

image

Leia scooted beyond Marina Barrage..and  we saw lots of greenery. A butterfly was flying near us. We talked about the colors of the butterfly and the story about “Hungry Caterpillar”

image

We entered an area with many types of Cactus. This reminds me of the Cactus Garden at Cameron Highland.

image

Have you seen brain cactus?

image

Out of the cactus garden, I spotted a sign “Big Fish Aquarium”. Didn’t know there was an aquarium..I was curious &  little doubtful..we followed the direction and expectation exceeded. It was a hidden aquarium with… truly big fishes. I recognised them… cos my brother rears river fishes.

image

Leia was hesistant about going near. She insisted Bret on her side. Look at the catfish… little girl and I have seen the species in much smaller size.

image

Another river fish that really catch Bret’s attention.

image

After some tourists came, we made our way further up to…

image

And we found “Adventure Trail” which we had missed out in our 1st visit.

image

Challenge & obstacles can be fun as we stretch out limits to know what we can really do.

image

Having a coach to guide and encourage us help us to overcome the fear within ourselves for better us.

image

Leia does have some sport genes in her.

image

Bret and I were intrigued by what was ahead too. We walked towards the long metal slides.

image

I would watch her go down the slide as Bret await her at the other end. Leia had a few go at the slide before proceeding to other “obstacles”.

image

Leia might have mistaken these for drums. As soon as she realised there was nothing much, she moved on to the “Tree House”.

image

I held her hand as we walked the wooden trail. Here is Leia and Bret in the “Tree House”. She is seated on a swing.

image

Getting down was quite an adventure.

image

We reached the “Water play” area where there is a cafe. Bret got us a drink to quench our thirst.

image

We shared a bottle of iced green tea.

image

We spent two wonderful hours at Marina. Weather was pretty good. Dizzling came only after we hopped into Bret’s car.

image

Leia wants to return again. Sure! She has invented some stunts with her scooter and  we love bringing her out.
