Langkawi Drive

We rented a van and drove all around the island of Langkawi yesterday. First stop was the cable car to the top of a mountain, but it was closed for 2 weeks for the off season yearly maintenance.
Terry and Greg. One of these guys is going the wrong way.
Then we drove to the top of a different mountain where the microwave towers are and had a view. The poor van just made it to the top. It was 'not new' and over heated a little on the way up. 
Sleepy Greg, me, Grace, April and Trinda on the lookout tower.

We had complementary tea that was quite good. It was local tea flavored with black pepper corns and maybe ginseng and mint.
Trinda and April relaxing after the strenuous elevator ride up.

The view was nice.
Looking southeast, The Katie Lee, Shanghai and Paktiya just left of center, in front of Kuah Town and below the Royal Langkawi Yacht Club, where the wedding was.

A Wedding in Langkawi

JB and April getting married! Our special friends did it today. April asked if I would stand in to "give the bride away". It was very nice. On the fore-deck of the catamaran Paktiya (Terry) they take their vows as a dozen friends look on.

Of course it rained a little in between the ceremony and tossing the bouquet and garter!
