Pregnant Maidens Pool

The trip from Penang to Langkawi was broken up with a stop at an idyllic deserted beach. Missing the keen ocean traders of Indonesia we hunted down the fishing boats all afternoon until Trevor from Gadfly finally managed to score a catch. OK, it was a bucket of tiny fish that no of us knew how to cook, but I wouldn’t be able to call myself a yachtie if I couldn’t come up with some concoction – small fish fritters, Thai style it was. While separating the jellyfish from the little fish, Simon shared his last homebrew with us.

En route, we saw what looked on the chart to be a lake on an island just south of Langkawi so off we headed. According to legend if you drink the water from this lake you will become pregnant. Needless to say we were all very careful!

With the beer cupboard well and truly empty, delaying Simon for a day more would be impossible. Langkawi here we come!
