Boat Cruise at The Mines

A beautiful morning with the frangipani flower in full bloom...

... and little meimei cooing away without a care.

I'm super excited today coz koko promised to take me for a boat ride.

I'm all ready to go.

Finally we are here... Ohh! I see the boat, come follow me.

The boat is starting to move...

... and head towards a canal...

... which runs through a shopping mall.

There are so many water taxis moored along the canal bank in the shopping mall.

We finally emerge from the mall...

... and out into the open sky.

A sense of tranquility beckons over the horizon.

Ahhh! I can feel the fresh morning breeze on my face as the boat cruises along the lake.

There are some upscale residential houses on the lake.

What's this? Safety rules and regulations?

Oops! It says no standing on the boat...

... but standing on four-leg does not count, I guess.

We pass by the shopping mall again on our way back.

This is a bridge inside the mall...

... and this is another bridge on the outside as we approach our disembarkation area.

Once on land, I waste no time in getting to know some furiends.

There is a competition going on at the stage, it is a pizza eating contest for both hooman and dog.

This Jack Russell and his hooman look like a formidable duo...

... as the dog woofs about the team's preparation to the emcee.

Hi there, my name is hero.

Busy as a bee checking peemails everywhere.

This is Kiki. She and her daddy are from Hong Kong.

Taking a breather under the tree... I'm exhausted but it's definitely a fun day.

Meimei is such a sweetheart, love that sweet smile.

Great day for a ride and what a beautiful scenic ride it was! Nothing like that around here at all.

Mei Mei gets cuter every time we see her!

That ride sounds like something I would love! What an exciting day you had. Did you get to do any shopping in the mall? Did you eat any of the pizza?

hey Hero,

The flower is so pretty, and MeiMei is so adorable! Just precious! Such a beautiful smile! I love seeing photos of your sweet lil' sis!

What a pawsome boat ride! Very interesting, and cool, that it goes through a mall. So much to look at, what fun you must have had!

And so many doggies! You must have made a lot of new furiends. They sure are pretty pups! And pizza for pups?! You live in a pawsome place! :->

Aww...Aunty Diana said she feels like "squeezing" Meimei! Meimei is so adorable. Please give her a hug for us.

You are so lucky to be there at the pet fair. Did you see Amber-Mae there? We didn't get to go.

Wow, what a ride! That looked like so much fun, and it's great that doggies can go so many places where you live. Meimei sure is growing fast! Maybe next time she can go on the boat ride with you.

It's so lovely to see you out on an adventure again, Hero! You're allowed on a boat ferry? Us dogs aren't allowed on ferries over here. And you're so calm about it too! Don't you get seasick at all? You're so brave and well travelled. I'm jealous.

I get to go shopping sometimes though. That's no fun unless it's for treats for me. HUGS xox

P.S. Hey! How come you don't look like your sister?

monica said...

how neat is that - a canal right through a shopping mall ! we sure don't have anything like that in Denmark! nice adventure !! and your meimei sure is a cutie pie - no wonder you're proud of her!

Lois Lane/Laney said...

What an amazing adventure! I'm so glad you're back at it again!

Lola and also Franklin, too said...

What an amazing adventure. At least it's amazing to us. A canal and boats and bridges inside a shopping mall? I wish we had something like that here. And your human sister is turning out to be so beautiful. She really couldn't be any more delightful even if she was a Peipei instead of a Meimei.

I wanna go too

Did Mei Mei enjoy the other doggie companies? I didn't know you can go on the boat ride at the Mines. We should have done that long time ago when I was still there..

One day.. One day..
