We usually run at the Botanic Gardens, where I snapped some photos of other styles of exercise as we passed by. First a shot of the Singapore orchids to set the scene:
People gather at the Gardens for every kind of exercise you can imagine. First gals getting ready for yoga
A set of older gals doing Tai Chi
This woman was doing her Tai Chi alone next to a cafe - I didn't want to disturb her, so you get her back:
The man teaching something with bamboo swords
And the graceful woman in yellow who uses gorgeous red fans
The lone jogger
And walker...these old folks walk in S-L-O-W M-O-T-I-O-N
I don't know what the guys were doing, but they were so colorful I had to get a shot
My friend Lyn introduced me to Luk Tung Kuen, a Cantonese exercise that is all about stretching and massaging pressure points. This group meets every day at 8 AM, rain or shine, for an hour at the Palm Court. There are 2 other daily groups of Luk Tung Kuen, but they meet too early for me.

This week our group met down at Keppel Bay, to run along the new boardwalk there. Here we are, the "Before" picture.
Our friends live at "Reflections," a beautiful, dramatic apartment building on the Bay
There is a lovely boardwalk that runs past Reflections and along the bay to Labrador Park
The boardwalk passes by a beautiful Black and White house where our longtime friends Teresa and Ryan live. It is the former HarborMaster's home:
Other views in the early, overcast morning:
I don't know what this fisherman is catching, but I don't think I would eat it...notice the refinery and chemical plants in the distance...
A nice spot to rest
but I don't think I would want to camp here anyway...
Another boardwalk exerciser
Another condo complex along the boardwalk...we nearly rented the 2nd floor apartment, seen here. But then we realized that everyone on the boardwalk could look into our windows, so we didn't take it
although this would have been the view out the window:
We tried to have breakfast at the marina, but we were too early for them Get this: the restaurant opens at 9:00 but the cook doesn't arrive until 9:30.... Here is our "After" shot:
We went up to Mike's apartment for coffee; here are some views from the 28th floor of Reflections:
A nice reward for a little running. Stay healthy out there!
