So Much Rain

Filed under: Birds — admin @ 9:33 am

Cenang Reed Beds – Langkawi

It has been raining every day now for ages. I wake up, have a look at the weather, and if it is raining, I go back to bed. If not, I make a cup of coffee and by the time I finish, it usually starts raining. This morning it looked overcast but with high clouds, so I thought it might be a goer. I had my coffee and muesli and headed off to the swamp. Oh, sorry the Wetlands. And after about five minutes it started spitting. So I found some shelter under a car wash and waited for it to stop. Finally it stopped and later on the sun came out and I had a good morning. Five minutes after I got home, it started bucketing down. The weather is so random in Langkawi.
