And back to Kuantan it is!

Arrived bright and early in Kuantan

Okay so like I promised, here are some photos that Dan and I took when we went back to his hometown in Kuantan.

First we went to the Balok beach - it was early in the morning, around 8 and let me tell you, the weather was scorching. However, the lighting was wonderful and as you can see the pictures below - it was quite a serene place - despite the heat.

Hermit Crab

Due to the low tide - the fishes got caught in a small puddle near the sea. 
Daniel calls it his "puddle of life"

A closer look

Try and spot the fish in his hands! 

Later on we went to the turtle sanctuary at Cherating - in Malay it is called "kawasan perlindungan and konservasi penyu". We didn't have to pay for the entry - but we donated some money to help them up-keep the cute turtles  that they had at the beach.

Yup that's how small they were

Next to the turtle sanctuary was Club Med Cherating.

Mine was more of "Look at me! There are greens in the grass!" haha

We had a nice time at the beaches - the only down side was the hot sun :(

We spent some time with Dan's grandparents and had a fantastic time <3 Of course the camera was there to capture all it's epic moments around the house ;)

He's a happy boy!
The beautiful tree we passed by on the way back

So all in all it was a good trip. We stayed there for 3 days and 2 nights and had a wonderful time.

By the way does anyone know the name of this tree? We passed it on the way back from Kuantan and have been looking for it's name. If anyone has any ideas please let me know.
