|Not a very interesting welcome.|
Hmm…we got used to
and enjoyed it tremendously and needed to continue on our journey now with our brand new Malaysian flag ready for hanging. Singapore
Our next stop Port Dickson was only a short distance away, past the shipping channels again. We made a booking at the very nice Port Dickson marina. That booking was made without electricity and water which they could not provide which was fine with us. We had plans to stay there for a few days and visit Melaca city which we all were really looking forward to since it is such an old city and apparently very interesting too.
Things don’t always work out as planned.
It was getting rather late in the afternoon with a storm building up rapidly. We were so glad to have a safe spot in the marina. This was not to be. Port Dickson could not find 2 bookings and simply turned us away. Apparently that happens a lot at that marina!!! We survived the storm in a small and only bay we found a few miles away.
|The sceenery of the Malaysian coast.Bit gloomy and very industrial.|
|Hmm just looking around and making sure that we are safe- always.|
|Our instruments showing us the way to Port Klang.|
We felt tired at the end of that day.
|Entering Port klang. A very busy and industrial port.|
This used to be Kuala Lumpur
until it burned out one day and
KL got moved to it's present location about an hour on a train
We had no other option but to keep on going to Port Klang with Apsara the next day. Our previous plan was to separate in Port Dickson where we were going to catch up with Sail Malaysia (which had already taken off) and Apsara was taking part in The Raja Muda International Regatta. We were going to meet again in Langkawi. The way it all worked out we continued on to Port Klang together and took part in Raja Muda together. This was “way” better and fun than the previous alternative.
