I love taking photos whenever we get the chance to visit the seaside. On our last trip to Bintan we were fortunate to be able to stay at a resort which had its own private beach.
It was really nice to have a morning stroll along the beach listening to the waves hitting the shoreline while feeling the sand in between my toes. It was a pity that we didn’t have any beach playset with us or else the kids would have been able to build sandcastles.
It is interesting to see so many different types of rocks littering the coast line. They range from the extremely huge to the tiny pebble. I really wonder how they were created and how long they have been existing at this beach.
I tried to capture the waves in action and it wasn’t easy as they were quite “mild” as it was low tide when I was at the beach. I love how the waves create ripples as they crash on the bumpy rock surfaces at the beach.
While on holidays in Bintan two weeks back we spotted some Monitor Lizards during our nature walk around the hotel premise. I went on a guided nature tour with R as part of our weekend getaway package we had at Angsana Bintan Resort & Spa at Bintan Island, Indonesia. It has been a while since we last went for a walk around and it felt nice being out in nature.
I had to zoom in all the way to get a clear shot of this reptile. I didn’t dare go too close as I was afraid that it would scamper away and disappear into the pond if it detected our presence.
I wanted to get a better shot of this reptile but it hurried off before I could get closer.
As part of our walk we were taken to the Turtle hatchery they had at the resort and saw two different endangered species which they were trying to preserve. – The Green Turtle and the Hawksbill Turtle.
It was feeding time at the conservation lab and these hatchlings were enjoying their lunch.
It was really great to see that the hotel was so into preserving these endangered species and doing it’s part in their conservation.
