Port Dickson Part 2

14 08 2008

Overall our trip to Port Dickson was a good one. Because of the impromptu decision there were no expectations and thus no disappointments. Here are some more pictures from the trip.

Aww did the little fish scare you boys?

The spot the boys chose looked promising but it was already 3.30 p.m when we got to there. By 4 p.m the unusually bright sun was beating down and starting to affect us all very badly. Already I could see that some of us were starting to suffer from a mild sunstroke, even I was feeling its effects. You could see the glare coming off the water’s surface in the picture below. Everything behind Mark was over exposed. it was impossible to get a good picture or concentrate on anything. All Tan could think was to jump into the water to cool himself off but the thought of rocks under the surface stopped him from jumping in.

Mark and Tan would later get their swimming done at a public beach further down the road while Tzy Wen and I went off to take some photos. It was very obvious form the pictures Tzy Wen managed to take that I needed to “loosen up” a bit on my perspective of things. Tzy Wen found an interesting picture of story in a lot of things he saw while I saw nothing interesting to photograph.

Sunset at the public beach was awesome thanks partly to the haze over the island of Sumatra. These then were some of the last pictures I took of the day.

We finished a wonderful day in Port Dickson with a hearty meal at one of the many restaurants in the town of Lukut which is situated just north of Port Dickson. Officially 7 kilometres from Port Dickson, both towns seemed to have merged into one. We had steamed fish, buttered prawns and fried squid in batter with our rice. To Mark and Tan, if you’re reading this, just look at the link I provided to Lukut. it would seem that there is better fishing to be done here. Let’s plan another trip guys, to quote John Lennon, “Life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans”.
