The plan this morning was to meet up with R&L at the Merlin beach resort to spend the day around the pool. It was slightly overcast today, but still warm. We headed down to the pool and found some sun loungers. It resort seems pretty quite.
Just chilling in the sun, without having to worry about getting covered in sand was bliss. I like the beach, but laying around the pool was better. Read some of my book, got in the water. Listened to some music, got in the water!! I would get so hot in the sun, then have to cool off. Time went quickly and before we knew it it was about 4 o'clock, before leaving I noticed on the wall, the pool rules - pool only to be used by inhouse guests..! Oops.
Richard and Laura got ready to go down to Bang-La Rd. I chilled, and sorted out all the stuff I am getting R&L to take back to the UK. I seemed to have been attached by a mosquito either last night, or around the pool- and have about 10 new bites all over my body! Great!
We jumped into the taxi from the Merlin beach, and headed down to the Patong Beach. On route is a great view point of the long beach, but I didn't manage to get my camera out in time... I might have to take a walk up there to get some pictures, or I guess I could just by a postcard. We had a couple of drinks and while there at the "Black Horse" a women came up to me with this little furry animal, I have no idea what it was, but I held it- she was so cute. Her name was Jackie. I had to pay to have some photos with it.! She wouldn't stop moving. As I was posing for a picture one of the locals said "same same" meaning that I looked like this little furry thing! Great! Lol
We walked around the markets, and I managed to bargain some bits for Richard. Richard had a Manchester United shirt on, and with their big game tonight against Man City- he seemed to be getting a lot of attention. People mostly supporting Man U as well, asking what the score would be.. Or they just Manchester United, you watching tonight, as he walked past. The game started at 02:00am so they didn't think they would watch it tonight. And then had some dinner. Laura wasnt feeling that great, so they headed back. I went for one more beer before going back to the hostel, to catch up on my blogs! Enjoy.
