A Scenic Spot along Miri River - Rarely Seen by Many

I love riverine life. And I often reach out to friends who have a boat to take me up the Miri River. One boat had cost me RM180 for a two hour ride once and a tragic accident caused my friend and I to drop our cameras into the water filled boat.

Then there was another occasion when another friend hired a boat for half a day and it rained so heavily that we just lost our deposit and the kindly fisherman went home while we sat at a nearby coffee shop to nurse our emptied pockets and sick hearts.

That put an end to my ideas of travelling up the Miri River for a while.

A few weekends ago a dear friend of mine took me to her relatives' home and I got these three shots...We spent a lot of time cooking nasi lemak and socialising and soon the sun set and that was it...a golden opportunity was gone too quickly.

Perhaps some other time.

NEAR.... NEARER....... NEAREST......

Yes God's handiwork is marvellous. I love the reflections on the peaceful water.
We used to love shouting across the river = increased volume.
god bless you and your family.

Thanks for the nice photos. I too agree that if we look closely Miri has many beautiful places.

For me Bakam has a lot to offer.

Thanks Kamaliah.
I like Bakam too where the Chinese lived very peacefully with the Melanaus and Kedayans.
Do you know that Hawaii Beach is one of the oldest Chinese beach resort. I remember meeting the oldest Chinese woman of Miri there.
There is a lot of history to uncover if we care to...but unfortunately many people do not have the focus and also the funds to do so...and then things just get buried....buried...buried....
