Woke Up To A Misty Morning & Outing In Fraser's Hill.

I didn't get to sleep on the 1st night in Fraser's Hill until the wee hours of the next morning. I didn't know what time I fell asleep. This is nothing unusual for me because I normally don't sleep well on the 1st night when away from home. I think I miss my own pillow and bed! On the 1st morning, we didn't get to see any spectacular sunrise. It rained the previous night and we had a misty morning.
We only managed a short walk before breakfast.
While waiting for the others, we had time to enjoy fresh cool air and plants.
Purple and White Globe Amaranth growing in the compound.
A kind of air plants hanging from the branches of the fir tree. The white spots look like tiny flowers.
I think this is the Scarlet Sage or Salvia Splendens growing at the foot of the tree.
We found this tiny purple berries on the ground amongst the creepers.
These group photos are for sweet memories.
As long as one of us is able to drive, we can continue to visit Fraser's Hill.
Or looking to the younger generation to take over the steering wheel!
A few more shots because we had the clock tower to ourselves. No other tourists waiting in line.
Young man's first visit to Fraser's Hill.
Found this Anthurium plant with seeds forming on the spadix near the clock tower.
Plenty of Impatiens x hawkeri flowers blooming opposite the clock tower and small yellow sunflowers were attracting lots of bees.
I would have missed taking these photos if not for the sharp eyes of our friend. These look like monster centipedes from afar. They were about as long as 5 to 6 feet or more!
These are the Giant Lobster Claws Heliconia, hidden from the main road.
Hubby stopped the car for us to take these view of the surrounding tree tops covered with mist.
I didn't had a chance to get a clear or sharp focus of the road below because of the approaching mist. The grey spots are part of the road below.

Linking to Skywatch Friday.

I have swept away your sins like a cloud.

I have scattered your offenses like the morning mist.

Oh, return to me, for I have paid the price to set you free.

(Isaiah 44:22, New Living Translation-NLT)

  2. Reminded me of my 1st night in Cameron Highlands. I did sleep well. It rained that night and next morning, we couldnt see the sunrise except mist around us. Pretty cooling to walk though.

    Beautiful group photos as well as the flowers.
