I spent the last night on the beach with British friends and watched the sunset. As I walked up the beach on the way back to my room, I noticed the elusive firedancer at work further up the beach. I took one photo, and voila, that was the end of his show! Damn, at least I got one photo. Maybe they will run this routine further north in Khao Lak. We leave this AM on a bus for 3 hour ride. Khao Lak was heavily damaged in the 04 tsunami disaster. I understand that they are rebuilding with lots of help from around the world and that there is a memorial there. I believe they have a newly installed warning system in place.

So it is off and running again, we don't know where we will stay. Once we get off the bus, Barb or I will set down with the bags, and the other will go in search of a room that won't break the bank. The routine is getting a bit old, the bags getting a little heavier. We have done pretty well so far. Our average room rate is $23 US.  These beach resorts will run the average up a bit, I expect. Hope you enjoy the sunset pics, and the solo firedancer, and can imagine a  warm sea breeze. My favorite times here are in the morning and early evening. It cools off to the 80's and the sun is no longer threatening to burn your hide off.

Sunset Pics
Enjoyed the sunset pics, and the fire dancer. Looks
like you guys are winding down. I am going to be
at the beach the 21st - 27th. If you'd like a ride
from the airport send me a date, flight and time. I
would be more than happy to pick you up. I do have
an all day class on Saturday the 23rd. Have a great
day. Rob
