A park overlooking the whole town and the great Abra mountains
We started our hike at the main road of after a police check point. I was exhausted from my trip but my uncle had a mischievous grin and wanted me to chuck some poundage while on my trip. Half cursing, I pushed on the trek alone, taking notice of the thick foliage of the hill where my destination waited for me. I wasn’t exactly in the mood to take photos of plants and this guy who looked like a marine was passing me by and literally running circles around me.
This just upset me more. So I ignored the sights till I reached the top of the winding road and made my way to the viewing deck. I imagined the hill would make a great venue for long boards. It was my first time to visit Victoria park but I instantly recognized it from the pictures of my cousins who used to frequent the place with their parents when we were still kids. There was a strange domelike structure in the middle of the park, apparently this was the water tank that supplied the whole valley.
It was a pretty nice sight that could have been better had it not been raining heavily all afternoon. I imagined the place and how it would look like at night with the lights of the houses and buildings all switched on. Near the edge of the park were octagon shaped tables used for picnics and such. I noticed there were quite a few couples in the park. This probably has reputation of being the make-out place of the youngins’ in this side of the valley. I went back to the viewing deck and took notice of the enormous Virgin Mary Statue that seemed to be watching over the whole of town which was visible from her perch that was about three storeys high.
