Back from the rocky shore...

Ok...we spent the morning at the rocky shore this morning (along with Hua Qin, a guy doing some work with RMBR as well). Took LOADS of photos but quite a few turned out to be quite blurred when we viewed them on the computer screen. Wai also did a rough sketch to show the distribution of habitats and types of flora and sessile fauna along the rocky beach.

Large areas of seaweeds, seagrass and sargassum could be observed, and there is also a large region where a variety of colonial anemones can be found. Did learn how to spot quite a number of species. Should help us in our next trip down.

After going through the photos with Siva (and discarding a number), realised that our photography skills need some brushing up... Well, it's all trial-and-error, and learning from our mistakes!

After the tide came in, we went up the forest trail and took in the view of the sea. Some of the southern islands can be easily seen in the horizon (Pulau Bukom, Pulau Semakau, and Pulau Jong)! Even the monorail on Sentosa can been seen on the left. There were also some bunkers and a battery hidden away, along the nature trail.

The next step for us would be to organise the (more or less decent) photos into a photo gallery to be put up on our website. Look out for this! ^^
