♥November 27th♥

On our 3rd day at Jeeva Beloam Beach Camp, we’d arranged to do soft tracking around Tanjung Ringgit.

We had a hearty breakfast and started our journey at 7:30am, with April and another Camp Host Jawa accompanying us.

Soft tracking it’s called; but…. it was about 5km journey and 2.5hrs track, walking through some thorny bushes (with April and Jawa giving us all the help like parting the bushes for us, or carrying the children over them etc), hilly rocky path, and what I couldn’t stand most is, because of the dry season, we hardly got any shelter from the plants/trees around, and even though it’s early morning, it was HOT!

Both April and Jawa helped with the girls, while we followed them closely. With Daddy making many stops to photograph the grand view or whatever he fancied. Soft Tracking at Tanjung Ringgit

There were a couple of beaches we walked passed, and the girls spent some time exploring.

Because we have 2 children with us, Irwan was arranged to meet us mid point with the car, just in case the children were too tired to go on.

The girls decided to move on with the tracking, and not take the car back. (Zaria regretted afterwards)

Zaria got a bit tired after a while, and had to be coaxed by April.Soft Tracking at Tanjung Ringgit

And because it was so hot, when she saw the sea next, she said she wanted to jump into the sea (April had to hold on to her just in case she really jumped in).Soft Tracking at Tanjung Ringgit

We made a couple of rest stop finding whatever shelter we have, and there were more beautiful views that greeted us.

Finally, Zaria gave up and wanted to be carried. Luckily Daddy had the stamina to carry her and walk on.Soft Tracking at Tanjung Ringgit

We tracked from Beloam all the way to the Light House, and then Irwan picked us up from the Light House so that we didn’t have to walk the return journey (I don’t think I could have made the return journey walking in the heat).

How did the girls do? They did well… Me? I had massive heat stroke after that, with throbbing migraine, and I had to lie down and missed lunch.

We rested in the room till about 2pm and then it was time to leave Jeeva Beloam Beach Camp. Irwan drove us to our next hotel, Jeeva Klui near Senggigi, which is about 2hrs away.

I was in a bad state and just slept throughout the journey; and then had to rest further in Jeeva Klui. I didn’t even manage a proper good bye and thank you to all of those in Jeeva Beloam who made our stay so memorable.

After this trip to Jeeva Beloam, I’m known as the softie in the family. Snorkeling… sea sick. Soft tracking under the sun… heat stroke..
