Tuesday 14 February 2012: Tanjung Rhu Beach, Langkawi
Sue's back improved today so we hired a death trap and toured about 1/3 of the islands roads. Ended up with sore bums and burnt bits.
Arrived at this beach ( not to be confused with Rhu by Helensburgh ) about noon so could only stand the heat for 3/4 of an hour or so. Retired to beach side restaurant (shack) for even hotter lunch. Honestly, the best food we have had has been from roadside or beach shacks, @ generally less than £3 for a light meal for two.
Drove to the highest point of the island, twisty 12 km off the main road, and could see nothing for trees. Bloody jungle!
Took Sue for special Valentine's day meal tonight. Cost was less than £12. Didn't tell her it was special. Kept that to myself, just in case she got excited and wanted to buy a new dress.
Quiet day planned for tomorrow.
