Penang walk at lowest sea level

This morning was Penang’s lowest ever sea level that I’d seen. I was able to walk all the way from the end of Gurney Drive almost to the Penang Club – just along the beach. The first time ever for me.

Penang's lowest ever sea level

Of course the land reclamation changes the flow of the sea currents, and the sand in front of the Penang Club has been washed away. Before the Gurney Wharf Project land reclamation I used to walk along the beach in front of the Penang Club. Even so, back then, still what I saw today was Penang’s lowest ever sea level. I never saw the opportunity to walk all the way to Gurney Drive along the beach. Naturally I am not there all the time. But I am quite often.
