Penang Ferry

To go Kuala Lumpur, we have the choice of crossing the straights of Malacca through a very long beautiful bridge, or to take the old ferry.
Quand on veut sortir de notre ile, on a le choix de traverser par le pont, un tres beau et tres long viaduc, meme plus long que celui de l'ile d'oleron, ou bien, on peut prendre le vieux ferry de l'epoque coloniale.
Au depart, on admire les grands bateaux de croisiere qui ancrent au port de Georgetown.
We first saw the huge starcruise cruseboat in Hong Kong on his inaugural trip, it now calls at Georgetown, king size in the middle of the straight. 
La mer est bleue, mais le ciel est empli de brume de chaleur, un peu de pollution et des fumerolles des rizieres qu'on brulent au loin.
The sea looks blue but the heat, a bit of pollution and the smoke from the paddy fields, there, at the foot of the Gunung Jerai, mount Kedah make it hazy. 
Looking back, you see the towers of the island, and the hills in the middle.
Vue de l'arriere du ferry, un autre bateau arrive au terminal, au fond, les tours de l'ile et les collines du centre.
A ma droite, au loin et dans la brume de chaleur, le pont de Penang.
In the haze, the bridge, a bit faraway.
Penang, the pearl Island.
Un ferry au premier plan et au fond un bateau casino, on a pas le droit de jouer des jeux d'argent par ici, alors le bateau part tard le soir, tout illumine, et les tables se mettent a jouer des qu'il atteint les eaux internationales. il rentre, comme sur la photo, au matin, certaines poches bien vides.
Jour et contrejour, je ne me lasse pas de prendre des photos, je pense toujours au blog, mais ensuite, elles restent dans l'ordi et je ne vous fait pas toujours partager mes images.
I like to take hundreds of photos, thanks to the blog of to facebook I am able to share them, but not as much as I would like, I don't post everyday (lazy fellow)
Une dragueuse qui recupere le sable des straights, au fond, le pont, et une autre ile, Pulau Gerekak, inhabitee, qui a servi de prison pendant un temps, elle est en cours de developpement malheureusement, elle serait plus belle couverte de sa jungle primaire.
We can see the bridge, and another island called Pulau Gerejak, beautiful with is primary jungle, but it is going to have tall buildings soon, it was a prison during war times.

It looks so beautiful. I love the ocean very much.

Hope your trip has been wonderful - seeing your family and the sights. perfectly understandable that you have no time for us. Look forward to seeing you more when you are home and the garden is fixed up again.
