Walking Through The Park
Are you busy? Do you have any errands today? If not, join me as I walk through Solong Eco Park.
Birds, flowers, butterflies, and swaying branches of trees are mostly seen in a park. It is always present and won't be able to leave your eyes bored.
Let's start with what catches my eye first — flowers.
What do you do whenever you see flowers? Smell it? Or you're satisfied with just admiring it and taking a snap of it?
Well, let's do both as of now.
Let's smell every flower we found here, and take a snap too.
Every flower is unique. They differ in color, shape, smell, and beauty.
And you know what? This white flower is known as an edible one. But I won't dare to eat it while walking. Lol. Would you?
It doesn't smell anything too.
This purple one does smell something. It's slightly fragrant. And that's why I love smelling flowers.
This zinnia is a lot. They were so easy to plant. I tried them before, and they grew so well, with low maintenance.
And it has no fragrance at all.
Do you want to go to something interesting? We're going now somewhere in the forest, where the cave is hiding.
By the way, I am with my family, and it's a long way before we get to the cave that I'm telling you about.
If you're a nature lover... This place is what suits you.
Here you can hear birds chirping, and smell the fresh air that trees exhale.
Every step, you must count... It'll just entertain you.
Before we step inside the cave, you'll get to notice these rocks... It was well-balanced.
Based on the tour guide, some visitors come to build this rock and others copied them too.
And of course, we should try that.
We should leave a mark here in case we get back soon. At least this walk won't be wasted without leaving any memories.
Can you see those three rocks in front? That was made by me. Haha. I was trying to put the fourth rock, but it won't want to get stacked. So I let it be, with just three.
Want to see the cave?
This cave is so dark that you can't see anything inside. Good thing the tour guide brought a big flashlight, just to help us whenever we want to take a snap.
I didn't take a lot of pictures here.
Well, what I appreciate here is the stalactites. The tour guide told us not to hold it as it can stop growing for good. And while typing this, that's the time I noticed my brother holding it. 🥺
It's raining again
This walk is a little bit challenging. We're walking up the hill, but the weather won't cooperate. After going out of the cave, we still manage to climb up the slope just to see this portal.
And you know what? According to the tour guide, this portal is magical. If you enter it, you can go back to your younger years.
So my Mom did. She enters that portal, and after coming out she became a toddler. 🥺
HAHAHA. Of course, it was a lie.
Finally, we reach the top and end of this walk. It was the view of green hills.
Good thing the rain stopped. We completely see the beautiful view of these hills.
Advantages of this walk
Every walk has a destination. And it's up to you if you'll enjoy it. Your every sense can be used just to appreciate everything around you.
Every walk is a chance to be close to anyone. Especially if you're with a group of friends and family.
It's the time you can see nature. Smell the cold breeze that came from trees. Feel and touch the beautiful flowers that make the place more appealing and attractive.
And the most important is... Every walk can help your body to be healthy. It is tiring but at the end of the day, you can feel the energy it gives.
I hope you enjoy our walk, even if it rains. It just shows that it can't stop us to go to our planned destination and take a risk, just to enjoy the day.
Remember to sip a coffee after this, as it's perfect for the gloomy weather and your tired body.

Want to have your post on the map too?
I have had a busy day but glad I made the time to visit your beautiful post and see all the beauty you shared with us
Thanks for joining the Wednesday, its always fun for me to visit the walks from all around the world, getting a feel for communities where people live and what they see on their daily walks
It's an honor to be visited by you Mr. @tattoodjay. Despite your busy schedules, you manage to stop by here. Thank you.
MOst welcome I try to visit as many of the walk posts as I can I really enjoy doing so
Yeah. I agree. It's entertaining to read about different walks all around the world.
ONG! that's a paradise eh! Ako when I saw a flowers, taking picture talaga una ko ginagawa, lol. Sadly, I don't have sense of smell so can't do thst now. I just use my eyes to feast on them while admiring their beauty, UwU
You don't have a sense of smell? Really? But you don't have covid? 🥺
Hahahaha... you took me on a journey to see wonderful and amazing flowers. They are so cute.
Then, the balanced rock, those visitors are amazing to leave a mark behind so that whenever they visit, they will be glad to see what they did...just for memory's sake. And here comes yours. Even with the three big rocks, you have left a mark too and that is what matters.
Plus, you have sweet family over there. I popped in through #dreemport
Hahaha... Thank you @princessbusayo. Glad you enjoyed those flowers. And that three rocks, I'm thinking of increasing it soon after my come back. 😂
The flowers are incredibly beautiful and I envy you for being able to contribute massively to our environment. Your Wonderful family speaks also the care and nurture you put into the things you're passionate about. I enjoyed taking this walk with you. Thanks for sharing.🌺
Thanks also @jhymi for walking with me and appreciating the beauty of those flowers. 🤗
Your pictures are so pretty. Thankyou for reminding me how important it is to walk. For almost three weeks, I've been hauled up at home without taking a step outside(defined because I'm on break from school and would love to stay relaxed at home) But aside that I would definitely try taking a walk today,even if it's just for five minutes outside my house:)
Glad it motivates you to stand on your comfortable couch and take a step and walk. Doing it would certainly benefit your body. That whole three weeks is enough to treat yourself outside and smell the fresh air. 🥰
Took your advice... Unfortunately I didn't last up to five minutes outside before sprinting back inside.
Why? What happened?
Well,I walking but then I was also concentrating on my phone,then yuh I almost tripped on a stone. I was like "screw it", then went back home🥲
What a beautiful walk. And it is so true, walking in nature is so rewarding. It fills us up with good vibes.
I popped in via #dreemport

That's good to hear then. Dreemport is a good community. Plus the fact that your article can have an expected commenter and upvoter. 😅
That view and the photos are gorgeous. Thanks for sharing a family vacation with us!
You're welcome. Thanks for dropping by as well and leaving an inspiring comment. 😉
That looks like a fair old walk!
Gorgeous scenery though.
Popped in from dreemport tonight.
Thanks, @tengolotodo. Glad you like what you saw. 😉
Such lovely pictures of flowers 🌹💐😍
The cave is cool to 🦇
Thank you for appreciating the flowers. And ohh, the cave. Yeah, we were supposed to leave that cave before 4 pm coz that's the time bats went out, and of course, we won't like to interrupt it by blocking their exit. 😅 Unless we want to smell bats' pee after.
Mehhh, maybe y'all would have gotten accustomed to em...
It's got a nice ring to it, no?😀😍✨😂
This was such a cool walk, Mayt! I have seen other posts previously of Solong ecopark but your pictures covered a few different things. I loved the pics of the wildflowers, and that view from the top across all that lush green scenery - stunning. I could just stand there for ages and absorb it all... and who doesn't love a breathtaking walk up a mountain to feel alive again. Looks like you all had an amazing day. ps: which flower was your favourite and why? !LUV !ALIVE !PIZZA

Wow. I love your comment. It's so uplifting that I feel everything that I captured is the best. 😍
Regarding your question, my favorite one is the white flower. The edible one. It's new to me.
It looks like a wildflower where you can just find anywhere growing, but the beauty is mesmerizing.
