It's the school holidays and we're delighted to have nearly 70 kids and mums and dads with us on Chek Jawa this muggy morning.
We are greeted by the cutest little wild boar piglets at the Information Kiosk, even before we begin our walk!
Mud crab! This is the crab that we eat as Chilli Crab!

jellyfish with fat sausage-like arms. We had a short stop to look at the fascinating nesting boxes put up by NParks for the hornbills. Just as we were finishing the tour, it started to rain.
Water monitor lizards! If we don't get too close, they won't run away.
some of the awesome drawings shared by earlier visitors, on the Naked Hermit Crabs blog.
more photos and stories of interesting encounters on our walk. I really enjoy doing the Chek Jawa walks because of the enthusiastic families that join us. It's great to know that there are mums and dads who take the time and trouble to introduce their kids to nature around us. Bravo!
Once again, we end the tour with another delicious lunch at Ubin Town. Thanks to Ley Kun for the lunch treat!
