Beach Time!

Oh yay!! We are off to the beach today - to the resort island of Penang. First we have to drive a bit...

Did you know that they drive on the wrong side of the road here (sorry Beanie!!)... and cars have their steering wheels on the wrong side too? A hold-over from British times. I wonder why Canada and the US went the other way??

Then we have to take a ferry...

Which has all sorts of cool places for a little bear to hide and play...

And this is our guest - suite!

Ahhhh... we get a whole big bed to ourselves!!

It was dark when we arrived so we couldn't see much outside...

But there were rumours that fireworks were going to happen, so Sebastian and I waited patiently...

Whoa!!! Yup, those are fireworks... cool!

After a restful sleep we got up to see... ooohhh... a beautiful bay with sandy beaches...

But we are beary high up!

So we scampered down the elevator and had a look around.

There are some beary nice beaches here...

And weird flowers. Sebastian says these are called Birds of Paradise...

Our resort has a pool too...

There are lots of fishing boats around...

And this one looked beary cool but someone didn't have a great camera so this zoom-in shot didn't work beary well...

Ah... time to sit by the pool and chill.

We found a lounger and relaxed in the sun... "Waiter! We'll have a Virgin Honey Margarita!"

And now we'll top it off with some ice cream... of course it would have been better if it was Ben & Jerry's Ice Cream (no relation to Jerry & Ben...). I told Sebastian all about my stuffie friends around the world and he was quite impressed!

  2. Sounds like a fun trip to the beach, I like the idea of a couple virgin honey margaritas. Be beary careful on the ferry, was it a smooth ride? Does Sebastian know of any secret spots to visit at the beach?

  3. Great photos Sandy, and we do love that ice cream place, although Jerry and Ben's might be a better name...hehe
