A Day At The Park.....After The Flood

Life is back to normal for most of us here in Bangkok. 
Floodwater has subsided and most affected areas are now recovering. 

Jatujak Park before the flood.

Last Friday, we took our homeschoolers to our favorite park to go biking.


Jatujak Park before the flood

We love coming to this park because of it's cool ambience and it's a safe place to bike around. 


Loved this moment with my Zoe!



I also love taking photos while the the girls are enjoying themselves.

Don't you just love that sprawling ground of green?

But our latest visit was quite a shock!

Jatujak Park after the flood

It's a sad sight....




We saw only one fish but for sure there were lots of them washed out from the pond to the grounds. 


Zoe after many rounds

Nevertheless, we're all glad that we're there and were able to make the most of our time.

It's still a beautiful day for us. Family time is always a happy time.

The view did disappoint us but the sights of my loved ones are enough to call it a beautiful day.

  2. That is a terrible waste. Such a lovely area just washed away. In Texas it was the other way around. Things dried up here and died.

  3. The "before" and "after" shots are in stark contrast to each other. Glad you could enjoy your day together, even surrounded by evidence of devastation.

    EVERYWHERE SHADOWS

    Shadows above and shadows below,
    Shadows that blaze and shadows that glow;
    Shadows outside and shadows indoors,
    Shadows on trees and shadows on floors;
    Everywhere shadows calling my name,
    Everywhere shadows no one can tame.

  9. Hope there wasn't too much damage from the flooding. Love the family photo shares, and the one of the photographer taking a picture of the lilies.


    Here is my link to my shadow shots If a tree falls in the swamp, do you HEAR it?

    Hope you're having a great weekend.
