Where I stayed
Saturday we took a boat around the island stopping at Thian og bay (shark bay) where Rick saw not one, not two but three baby black tip reef sharks
The Coral and surrounding fish are amazing - caught a lot on camera which we will add later once sorted.
Sunday - packing to leave this wonderful island, batteries recharged, somewhat more bronzed, ready for the next adventure - needless to say we are flying this time! (via Koh Samui). Been here a week, with 4 nights in one place - pure bliss.
Monday 13th Feb - HAPPY BIRTHDAY Mark! Having briefly seen Koh Phangan and Koh Samui this morning, realise Koh Tao was a brilliant choice of island - small and still rustic with no busy roads but lively atmosphere . We loved the food (so cheap - we splashed out on a big meal the other day and it cost the exorbitant sum of £8 between us), the colourful boats, the friendly people, the Chang beer! Lovely climate, not at all humid, although we had one evening of heavy rain. They really seem to care about the environment too.
Currently delayed at Samui Airport, but can't think of a better airport to be delayed in! It's really attractive -the "departure lounge" is an open-air straw-covered roof on stilts, surrounded by tropical shrubs. Rick has just returned with complimentary pastries & drink - better go and get some too - sorry to ramble on - it passes the time well (free wifi of course).
