Our cabin was less idyllic at 2am the first night when we woke up to a massive rainstorm to find the roof leaking in several places, including into our bags and onto Gordon’s toes. The rain had worn off by the morning though and we spend another idyllic couple of days beaching and body-boarding before deciding that we’d had enough lazing on beaches and wanted a change of pace so booked a boat back to the mainland with the intention of heading on to Penang.
Mother Nature had other ideas however and when we got up to catch our boat we walked out of our dripping hut into a raging downpour to be told there are no boats running as it just isn’t safe. That was two days ago and we’re still here. Apparently it can take up to a week for the weather to clear enough to get boats through! We’re just hoping for some better weather now as if it’s a week we’ll all be totally sick of card games and there’s a real danger the cafe will have run out of banana pancakes.
