A long long time ago when I was in school a group of friends would cycle here every so often. We used to call it the ‘Blue Lagoon’ and imagined Brooke Shields bathing among the rocks, lol!
The Blue Lagoon was popular among the locals for its tranquil waters, and was a well-kept secret to keep those pesky tourists away. You can have your Pantai Batu Buruk, leave us to our Blue Lagoon.
Some 30 years later and I finally discovered its true name: Pantai Pandak! With time came development, and I particularly disappointed to see a resort being built nearby. So much for it being ‘private’ beach for ‘us’ locals.
|something eerie about this tree|
|but that didn't bother him one bit|
|the rocks where we'd imagine Brooke Shields bathing|
|the spooky tree in its full glory|
|but for us 'locals'|
|kite flying, a popular pastime|
|enveloped by dark clouds|
|yeah, rain is coming|
|time to head back|
|but not until one final shot of a traditional wooden house|
|heading back to our car|
Soon as we got in the car the heavens opened up and it poured bucket loads of rain. We got back to our budget beach resort and took a nap, dreaming of what's in store for dinner.
