Mersing, Johor Province, Malaysia

We stood on the docks at Mersing, listing to the distant call to prayer as the everpresent haze continued to darken. The distant shapes of the fishing boats at sea was almost creepy. One in particular - a construction barge? - looked more like some kind of distant sea monster.

We also saw the Bluewater Express, a reassuringly large and stable-looking ferry.
