We've reached it...the final destination of our trip, the beach! We have put away the Lonely Planet, the maps and all the planning to lay on a beach chair and worry only about evening out our tan! Yep, it's a simple life with very simple pleasures.
We are at Thong Nai Pan Beach on Koh Phagan Island. It is a gorgeous little oasis from the busy world of Thailand. In fact we are hear during "Low" season so it especially quiet with only maybe a dozen people on the beach each day! In fact, most days there are more dogs on the beach that people. One dog got so friendly with Ted that he tried to mark Ted as his by leaving a scent of him on Ted's towel!
Ted and I spend time reading, turning over and planning when to start spiking our drinks with Rum (cocktails at the bar are too expensive for us! - we still can't quite get used to "Western" prices!). We are also starting to reminisce about our best adventures, meals and modes of transport! (We've begun to run out of things to talk about!)
The big excitment was going diving yesterday but, alas, today we are resting and recovering from "doing" something yesterday! (I can hear your groans all the way from Canada).
So not much more to report on than we are counting down the days til we can see all of you!
