Both of these pictures were taken in Tanjung Rhu, Langkawi. Pristine white beaches, excellent views but I hated the mud beyond the sand.
The first time I saw someone reading in the water. She was totally engrossed. Either the book is an un-put-downable masterpiece or its a waterproof copy. Either way, she was rooted at the spot from the time I first saw her until I leave about half an hour later. This was on one of the beaches of Pulau Pangkor, can't remember which beach.
