We made it!!!!!! Yippee! We had a bit of sleep on the overnight bus.. But what a struggle it was to get the bus... We lost each other in the rush, found each other again... Then searched and searched for the tickets.. Finally this morning we were in the back of a truck to the pier to catch out ferry! Then some more sun! Sunbathing on the boat.. Which at half way we spotted a man floating in the middle of the ocean, clinging to a bamboo pole for his life.. The boat did a u turn and picked him up... God knows how long he had been out there or what he was doing!! It was very hot.. And he was right in the middle .. At least 50 km from land.. Then we got here.. So hot!! Our next struggle was, with the full moon party on two days away we had to find somewhere to stay.. So we picked baan khai, just outside of Haad rin.. We tried three places before finding one.. A lovely garden set bungalow, ensuite with a sea view balcony and a swimming pool too.. Lovely!! We had a long awaited shower and went for some food.. An average meal by thailands standards.. But okay :) we were happy to have sun and sand!! Lots of sun cream later we were on the beach, the sea was hotter than the air!! So many fish and crabs! A short walk turned into a 4 km wander to haad rin :) we stopped for a drink and decided to explore the sunrise and sunset beaches.. Sunrise was quiet and gorgeous, sunset ( full moon setting) was gorgeous but crowded.. We had dinner there, a drink on the beach but now after lots of hectic travelling we are watching some Olympics in bed after chasing a 30 cm gecko out of our room!!!
