We have been relaxing here at the resort for the last few days and last night we went to watch footy in Haad Rin, the main town on the island. However, today we hired a jeep with a few fellow travellers and explored the island. We all had a go at driving which was fun...apart from the hill starts!!
First of all we went to a gorgeous beach near the north of the island called Haad Salad. It was so prestine, beautiful clear waters, white sand and hardly any tourists - paradise!!! We went paddling in the shallow waters and saw fish, crabs and sea slugs (yuk!). We also played a little footy and did some sunbathing.
After the beach we drove to an English pub called the Mason Arms. It's run by an Ex-Pat and he has newly built a pub to look like a tudor building. Inside the bar was decorated like a traditional pub and we had some lunch (nice western food) and even cider!!! It was great having home comforts after nearly a month away and even made us a little home sick.
Once we ate our lunch we went off to the small town of Thong Sala near our resort for a bit of shopping in the market and got a few bits...we even found a fridge magnet to add to our collection!!!! Once we got back to the resort we all jumped into the pool to refresh ourselves ready for the Black Moon Party!!!
