What a beach, what a view, what water! And lots of turtles around here. The beaches on the east and north of Redang are green turtle egg-laying beaches and we saw the tracks and nests of their efforts. Turtles pop up all around the boat all day long. You can hear them exhale and often just see the swirl and splash as they go back down to munch on the sparse growth in the sand.
Mama goat and her kids resting on a tiny ledge of a foundation. Lots of goats roamed here and they threw watermelons into a n empty field to feed them.
You're looking at the sea bed nearly 30' down--all sand here. You can see our anchor chain and the attendant squid--those little black marks.
The mega-yacht we anchored near in this turtle nesting area. They were very noisy and broke out the jet ski and zoomed around to annoy us all before they picked up and motored off in the late afternoon.
We came back to the NE Bay and filled our tanks and buckets with water from the resort. Sure enough, that night, it poured rain. I'd aired out my closet to ferret out a musty garment--a vest for cold weather--and I'd washed it. Jason took it to shore to triple rinse it and hung it out on the lifelines. The strong, sudden gusts took away in the night and we never saw it again! You can see the bottom clearly here, and I snorkeled around when another wind gust blew a water tub overboard the next day and I had to jump in to get it, but I couldn't spot it anywhere. Just turtles and abandoned mooring lines and nets on the bottom. But our anchor was well-set and we sleep soundly knowing we are safe in this bay. That's a good feeling!
