A Day Out with Coomera
We took the ferry shuttle over ‘to the other side’ and a quick taxi ride to Cenang to meet Helen and Mark (Coomera) at the Underwater World. They had asked a man for directions to our ferry stop but he said “no such place”, they asked where does the Rebak Resort ferry come in “no such resort” and each different way they could think to illicit the simply answer they needed,......... they gave up with the negative answers and rang us.
We were soon looking up to the cable car (just visible – the middle point a useful pointer......but it only looks like three tiny dots, a must do one day soon) at Telaga Marina. We found that the chandlery is only open from two until six so we went in search of brunch.
Looking right and left, we could be in many Continental ports.
We settled in The Loaf and everyone had the Special (beef rashers as no pork in these parts), I had a little salad as I couldn’t possibly have fought my way through such an epic.
We went to an Artisan Batik indoor market and saw some beautiful tops, bags, sarongs etc. – all hand painted. Outside was this rather splendid staghorn fern complete with dangles.
Via a fruit market stall and the chandlers we headed for the beach. These sharks looking pretty sad.
Not as sad as this once lovely building – we thought may have been a restaurant.
Looking out to sea.
To our left the Cement Works dominate, to our right a lovely beach.
Mark drove us to the Royal Langkawi Yacht Club for a drink or two where we enjoyed the ambience of a modern and well run marina. At the bottom of the stairs is a collection of propellers who had ‘had a bad day’. Then it was a quick stop for us to pick up some salad and then back to our food stalls by the ferry. We, being creatures of habit had our satay chicken, rice and a small coke for the princely sum of three pounds and twenty pence. Helen and Mark were off to have KFC. Back on the last ferry, what a great day out.
ALL IN ALL A SMASHING DAY FULL OF VARIETY
A LOVELY DAY GOING ROUND LANGKAWI
