Today we had another ‘no-alarm’ day. We’ve decided that here in Phuket, for our last few days of vacation, we’re just going to have a relaxing beach vacation. Here was the view from Tim’s and my room this morning:
When we were all ready, we walked down the hill into town and head breakfast at a sidewalk cafe, then went straight to the beach for the rest of the day. We were at Patong Beach, which is on the east side of Phuket, on the Straits of Malacca, in the Andaman Sea. Although there was a surfing competition going on, the beach wasn’t busy at all. And although these temps are not the highest we’ve had, it felt really hot! The water temp was 90 degrees, so it almost made the air feel cool - but not really.
After we’d had enough sun and sand, we walked back up the hill and got cleaned up, then went back down the hill for dinner. Again we chose a sidewalk/street restaurant - the looks of which we would steer FAR clear of at home, and again we had an excellent meal.
After dinner, we talked about taking an open-air taxi (will get a pic tomorrow), but decided to walk. We stopped at 7-Eleven to get yogurts and some other food for breakfast in the morning, since we booked an island-hopping/snorkeling excursion for tomorrow and have to be at the bottom of the hill (they would pick us up at our condo but the bus can’t make it up the hill) by 8:30.
The girls cleaned some of the fruit that our host left for us (thank goodness Nudi is here - we didn’t know what most of it was, let alone what in the world to do with it!), so it’s ready in the morning, then we played some cards on the girls’ patio - it’s larger than ours but ours, directly above, has a better view - before heading to our air conditioned rooms (bedrooms have a/c but the rest of the house just has fans).
