Along the ten-minute walk, you see animal sculptures like these.
Feeling adventurous, the 4 of us agreed to take on the jungle walk after sundown to see the turtles.
At about 8:00 PM, we left our hotel rooms and headed for the jungle path. Armed with only the torch from our phones, we had underestimated the utter darkness of nighttime in the woods. Traipsing down a trail in the inky blackness didn't seem like fun after all. Besides, we were a walking buffet for mosquitoes. It also just hit me then, that this was the month of the Hungry Ghost Festival — that time of the year when it is believed that the gates of hell are open for an entire month and spirits from the underworld are allowed to roam the earth in search of food or seek revenge on those who had wronged them!
The hairs on the back of my neck began to stand up and my body screamed for us to turn around.
Perhaps my mind was playing tricks on me in the abyssal darkness but I thought I saw a pair of glowing eyes in the distance. I seriously freaked out at this point and wanted to turn back but the three of them vetoed my decision.
Suddenly, we all heard a movement in the brush.
Need I say, we scurried back to the hotel like scared little girls?!
I think I might have been a bit scared on that walk too once it got dark, but the pictures you shared from the light of day were cute :)ReplyDelete
Hahaha! I guess I would want to know how well-traveled that path is before I head out. It is well-used, then you shouldn't worry about anything dangerous. Animals avoid humans, so if they know the path is used a lot, they stay far away from it.ReplyDelete
I think the only time we have run screaming is when we approached an angry rattle snake. Needless to say, the run was warranted.
Wow monkey and a creative jungle trip capture lovely .ReplyDelete
Spooky!! I do not like dark unfamiliar places at all!ReplyDelete
The critters are rather fun!ReplyDelete

While it looks gorgeous, even during day time I would be worried about what lurked in the greenery, never mind at night! Brave souls. ;-)ReplyDelete
It looks like a fun adventure!ReplyDelete
The animal statues are cute.
Great looking trail. We have been to turtle beaches before, I've never seen a live one come up the beach to lay it's eggs though, or the newborns scurrying to the sea. #BloggersBestReplyDelete
How fun! This would be a great walk for my little one. #bloggersbestReplyDelete
How fun. I want to go too.ReplyDelete
Have a fabulous Wordless Wednesday. ♥
Oh gosh, that does sound scary! I would have run back to the hotel, too.ReplyDelete
Cool statues. I wouldn't want to walk in the woods at night either.ReplyDelete
Ooh scary! I love all of the characters along the way: did you ever get to the beach? Thanks for linking up with #globalbloggingReplyDelete
Haha! I think I would have scurried away too! Love the animal sculptures! Thanks for joining in with #ThatFridayLinkyReplyDelete
I would feel the same! Especially if there were a few sets of eyes - then run!! xReplyDelete
Oh that is scary walking in the woods or jungle at night. Mother Nature somehow always seems scarier in the dark but I'm sorry you didn't get to see the turtles lay their eggs. #GlobalBloggingReplyDelete
That's such a shame that you didn't get to see the Turtles laying the eggs. You had me at Mosquito Buffett! They love feasting on me xxReplyDelete
That jungle trip looks cool until you had those goosebumps! I will freak out just like you hahahahaReplyDelete
Lol, you're brave. I would have never started the journey. I do love the animals along the path.ReplyDelete
