I went to the beach in Miri on the very last day of my trip there. I was due to fly back to Sibu later in the evening and wanted to hit the beach before heading back so I woke Faye up to drive to the Marina Bay beach.
There were a lot of families and other couples frolicking in the sand and sea over there.
The view at the Marina Bay beach was great – there’s the sun, the surf, the people taking a dip in the sea.
Guerrilla advertising at it’s best. ;)
I did this at the Mt. Buller Ski Resort in Melbourne, Australia when I was there as well – there was a snow cam on the net which shows live feeds of the area and I carved sixthseal.com into the snow and asked my friend to log in and grab a screenshot.
It was fun to submerge myself in the salt water. I find beaches very relaxing and therapeutic. There’s the horizon in the distance, the warm sun on your back, the sounds of waves lapping at the beach. I think I would be less neurotic if I lived in a beach front property. ;)
Faye got my newly purchased digicam wet after a couple of photos coz she splashed water at me. The salt water got into the lens and fogged it up and just wouldn’t dry up.
Beached whale (Hancock, little help here?)
I figured I would run back to the nearest shopping mall and get another digicam but I don’t think we’ll have time.
Help! I’m drowning!
Thus, it was decided that the digicam be left in the car with the heater on and temporarily use the inferior camera function on Faye’s Pocket PC (2 MP) to take photos with.
I am the King of the World!
However, much to my delight, the salt water condensation inside my digicam lens evaporated when we got back to the car. Thus, we rushed back and did the same poses for capturing with a proper digicam and I jumped into the sea again for some shots.
There was about 10 minutes of shenanigans before the ominous dark clouds passed over us and it started to rain heavily. Oh well, at least I got to swim in the sea and bask a little in the sand.
Thus, we packed up and ran back to the car. I didn’t even have time to towel off and take off my Speedo the second time so I was shivering by the time I got back home.
I don’t have any photos of topless chicks sunbathing, unfortunately. However, I do have one of myself stripping naked at the family beach. Hope that compensates somewhat for the lack of T&A. ;)
I had fun in Miri. It was great, managing to hit the beach during my last day there.
