We were up and ready to leave early this morning. Everyone's sleep wasn't the greatest so we were keen to get up and out.
This morning the sun was shining and there was not a cloud to be seen.
Boat tickets were purchased and we sat down for a drink before we departed for Ko Phayam.
The speed boat ride was a quick 40 minuet ride out along the river and into the andaman sea.
We arrived at the dock and jumped on a motorbike taxi each and headed for the opposite side of the island to find some place to stay.
The road came to an end and the beach was just a step away. The long white sand beach with blue waves crashing the shore was home to a dozen bungalow resorts. It took a few viewings for the girls to find a acceptable lodging. In fact it took long enough for me and Buller to sink a beer on the beach while the girls when hunting. Eventually the choice was made and we had beach front bungalows next door to each other.
Lunch was a high priority and the usual mix of pad Thais and fried rice soon covered our table.
The afternoon consisted of beach lounging, body boarding in some quite substantial waves, frisbee, beer drinking, and sunset watching.
We all showered and headed along the beach for dinner. Lanterns strung along the beach front at our restaurant of choice. Our feet sank in the soft sand as we ate today's freshly caught king Mackerel.
We were greeted with some resident cockroaches in the bathroom of our bungalow. They soon fled with a spray of the shower. A small price to pay for living in a hut on the edge of the jungle and steps from the beach for £15 a night.
