Jan_17, 2009: Exploring a fishing village

This was an interesting trip because the seas were high. We went from Tanah Merah to Tanjung Pinang the usual route (red). However, to protect from the weather, we took a route around Batam (purple).

Here is our place

I had never walked beyond the bungalow site (part of Bintan Agro Beach Resort) so this afternoon I thought I would just walk along the road and see what I could see. Here is the road to somewhere - to the left is a school.

A grass bungalow - the "other" Bintan Agro Beach Resort"

Here was a path to the sea - I thought I would play with black/white rendering. I rather like the b/w version
