You may think I’m talking about the girl with the red locks in my picture, although she does like her exercise, the Red Arrow is a short track (just over a km) used by many people to get their daily exercise dose. Right next door to the Botanical gardens behind the information center is a circular track which presents in a collection of stairs through the rainforest that overlooks the airport when you reach the top. The downward hill to reach the bottom can be refreshing looking out at the view (depending which way you enter the track). If you are more experienced you might like the blue arrow (halfway up that is much longer and you will need the weekend to do that one). All I can say is “feel the burn” 🙂
I found myself after 10:30 out side in my PJ’s in the rain! I was rescuing about 20 or more newly hatched baby frogs (the size of my thumb nail), they had come onto the concrete footpath that surrounds my house which in turn had drawn the moisture straight off their skin. At first the kids and I thought they were all dead until we tipped water on them and to our surprise they became unstuck, I spent the next 1/2 an hour hosing the concrete and walls. It’s great to see so many baby frogs for our environment! This picture was taken a few days when their skin is a bit tougher and they have all found hiding spots in the garden.
