Reflections @ West Coast Park


I really enjoyed every single trip to various parks, whether it is overly quiet or brimming with life everywhere... I just enjoyed being in the company of nature and its inhabitants, much easier to understand and appreciate as compared to fellow human beings... I guess I am a easily contented person, a single butterfly fluttering among the flowers can make my day :)

It might be tiring to visit these parks early in the morning but seeing all these wonderful things really make me forget my fatigue at the end of the day..
