Repost Friday: Beach

This repost is from April 24th, 2007

We went to the beach last weekend, to Port Dickson. It was so absolutely gorgeous that the pictures turned out like post cards.

For once we saw a Malaysian beach that is clean, without the usual litter of plastic bags, tin cans, etc. The water was like a warm bath.

When we got back, salt encrusted, sticky and a little bit pink around the edges, Scoop and Au inspected my shoes, my Tshirt and my shorts with horrified little sniffs.

Once he'd checked it all out, Scoop looked at me and shook his head sadly. He realised I'd been floating about in the water the way I do in the bath. And as far as Scoop is concerned, that's just plain silly!

Here's the beach!

What a beautiful beach - and how funny that Scoop knew you were doing that silly water thing!

East coast waters and beaches are better than the west.

This beach is so beautiful - and I really liked Scoop's reaction! It is sad to hear about all the trash on the beaches though. We live near the east coast of the US, so you would think there would be a lot of trash on the beaches near us too, but there isn't. Maybe it's because of ocean currents? (I doubt if it's because there is no trash!)

Pretty hard to believe, this. My experience with PD is mostly limited to all the clean-ups I had to do during the Raptor Watch Weekend -- and all those dead bleached corals, blobs of smelly algae and greasy rubbish we found. I must have been at the wrong stretch of the beach!
