Lotus Offical Club Malaysia (LOCM) recently organised a drive to our National park (Taman Negara).
It was planned to be full of activities and totally different from the usual ,drive, eat and sleep.
Having the attention span of a gnat ,this sounded interesting
,so me and the Mrs tagged along . :-)
Early morning meet up.
Lots of colour.
The star attraction.
All British :-)
A quick photo op with the big Mc.
A very nice wrap.

A group photo before departure.
Professionals ,leaders in their fields etc.....
When they get in their cars.....
Just say Bye -bye.
At least now my wife doesn't complain about my speed...
I see you ...
Got a bogey on my tail...
This was my sedate speed. Seriously .
Comparatively that is .
What a view.
Wide body :-)
Soon we turned off the highway...
A short stop to regroup.
For once my car is in front.
All eyes on McYellow .
A beauty. Its a spyder .See.....
On to the B roads.
I thought it will be slower now...
Ha ha ha. I was soooooo wrong.
160 -200 . !!!!!!!
Fossil fuel time.
A real beauty.
All of them.
Sleeper..... if you get it :-)
Peek a boo
Now on to the C roads.
A familiar name...ha ha ha
Oil palm estates...
Windy and narrower.
With great scenery.
My co-pilot did a great job of taking pics.
Look at the road.
Literally a milli-second before impact :-)
But the views man....
Look at THAT !!!!
Before noon we reached the river mouth.
And the main town.
Han's hotel :-P
Eye candy .
My favourite pic.
With my baby.
A creek running through the hotel.
Dump our bags...
Back to the lobby...
Admire my baby a bit...
Join up with the others....
Another photo op while waiting for our ride.

To the river mouth...
A hotel across the river. 5 star .
Back to our floating restaurant.

We go back to the river via tuk-tuk :-)
For a boat trip...
To go see a waterfall.
You sit really low...
We will be here later.
Imagine...we are a car club.
What a great activity.
Different and interesting.
This part of the river the water is clear.
Many many rocks.
That's causing the white tops.
Finally we reach the end.
Now to hike...
2 km through a jungle trail
Nice clear water.
Sensing her prey weakening ,she charges in for the kill :-P
Finally reached ,panting and sweating.
Low water though .
The swimming hole.
I jumped in and realised there was no bottom .
So , found a rock and stayed there...newbie :-(
Its extends down a bit.
See the waterfall :-) see ha ha ha. Kanan la oooi
Oh wait , a better pic...ha ha ha
Natural seating gallery...
After about a hour and another hike its back to the boats.
To a fish sanctuary
Where we get to feed the fish...
up close and personal.
Or right in the water...
..as some of the guys did.
All kids at heart :-)
See...ha ha ha
After all the activities , we needed to sit and have a drink.....
After a nice break....
Its time for dinner...
Across the river....
Damage from the previous floods.....

As we had our great local dinner ....
The full moon came up.
Manage to get a shot of the seas...
Food was great through out the trip .
After a day of driving ,hiking ,boating ,swimming and making friends.
Its time to relax and enjoy the sights in the national park.
