A typcial day would involve getting up around 10am, having a great, leisurely breakfast at Silvercliff with Wow (the owner and chef extrodinaire), heading to the waterfall to read and relax and then moving to the beach around 1:00pm when the boat loads of people would venture to the waterfall. It was excellent. We had Benji and Dom would were bascially ex-pats as company at some point during each day, either at the waterfall or for dinner
We did have a day in Thong-Sala, which is the major town on the island. Wendy bought some fantastic dresses that I can't wait to rock out.... we did end up wearing them one night to our little restaurant that we eat at everyday. It was laundry day and since we had no clothes, I mean none, everything was in the wash, we decided to make a night of it and get all dolled up in the new dresses. Fun fun.
This continued for about a week more before it was time for another phase of the lunar cycle. The half-moon party contrasts the full moon party big time. Full moon is big with several different sound systems blaring different types of music on the beach. Half moon is smaller (but still big) with one sound system blaring in the jungle. Two very different scenes and I definately felt that Wendy and I needed to check this out.
Benji and Dom also decided they were up for a night out so we all got dolled up and drove into Haad Rin for some dinner. We were all very disappointed with our food despite paying more than I had for a meal in a long time. It was frustrating because all these restaurants in the main area have "the look" but can't produced half decent food
We were scheduled to leave the next morning but Wendy and I were in no states to get on a boat that morning so we opted one more day in Ko Phan-gan before moving to Ko Tao. This day, we did manage to make it to the waterfall for one more dip and then just chilled out at Silvercliff with Benji and then Dom joined us for our last night dinner. Going to miss these guys and the beach!
