Pangkor Island with the Family

PhotoStory Friday
Hosted by Cecily and MamaGeek





This was taken at Pangkor Island, Malaysia where my family had 3 wonderful days by the beach earlier this week. My parents, brother and I spent many weekends at Pangkor when we were growing up. Memories of camping there are some of the most vivid I have of my childhood.

Now, both my brother and I are married. And, there is a grandchild in the family. We no longer camp but this small motel by the beach provided just as much fun (or even more) than the tents. I'm just waiting for my brother and his wife to add another grandchild into the picture and this family will be even richer than it already is.

It looks as if you enjoyed your family time as much as I enjoyed mine over the 4th of July weekend. Nice photo!

I'm glad y'all live close enough to still be able to do this sort of thing.

A fine family picture.

Wow! I would love to go some place exotic like that. Hotels/motels are much easier when you have kids!

Camping in a motel? SMART move.

Love the tradition! Thanks for PSFing with us!

Sorry I am so behind commenting. Getting a stomach virus made looking at a computer screen just too much this weekend.
