We reached the hire store! They have all sorts of different bicycles, as well as those ‘ice-cream carts’ (on the edge of the photo above). They’ve also got those double-bicycles where 2 people can cycle together. I was actually taken aback by the choice – the guy asked me which one I’d like and I was like “err…what’s the difference?” haha. They are different prices to hire, but they look the same anyway.
So there I was, super-excited about cycling all around East Coast Park…except…
…you need your IC to hire a bike. JS didn’t realise that and didn’t have his on him. We didn’t bother bringing his wallet and just took some money out. But for those who get stuck in this sticky situation, worry not because you can still hire a bike…but only if you place a $100 deposit, which will be refunded upon return of the bike. Alas, we only brought $60 out since we planned to have dinner at East Coast Lagoon.
Cue our exit from the shop, bicycle-less. This is one situation I would call EPIC FAIL! haha. Oh well, we decided to just walk around, up and down the beach, randomly playing on those public exercise things like pull-up bars, etc.
It was a nice balmy evening and perfect for a stroll along the beach with JS. Well, I was like a hyperactive child running up and down at some point, but I settled down!! haha. While the beach is nowhere near as beautiful as the ones in Perth, I still thoroughly enjoyed this time spent with JS.
We found some interesting things along the sand – sea coconut, a really green algae-covered rock, a shoe…? We decided to sit down on the sand for a little while, and listened to some songs on his phone. Before we knew it, the sun was setting and it was a beautiful golden glow. It’s been so long since I watched the sunset, especially with JS!
