Brrr! It can’t be more than 70 degrees out here!
January 18, 2010 – Day 389 – Koh Samui, Thailand
Well it’s off to a bit of a bummer day. Stormy weather moving in, darkish choppy water and a very skinny beach with coarse yellow sand. Not quite what we were looking for in the way of Thai islands, especially after having travelled two days just to get here. We chose Mae Nam beach because we had heard it was quieter than the more popular Chaweng and Lamai Beaches. Sounded pretty nice to us but it left us wanting something a little different. Of course the crummy weather was no help either!
But despite the stormy looking skies that threatened rain, we still spent most of the day at the beach building various sand sculptures. Getting in touch with our artistic sides you know.
Around nightfall the wind picked up and we had to break out the sweaters to ward off the cold. That’s right, it was cold! About 70 degrees Farenheit and we had goosebumps. Well, that’s what happens when you spend too long in 100+ degree heat for months on end. But we enjoyed the breezy night sitting on our private porch (whoa!) drinking beer and/or feasting on delicious chocolate covered almonds. Fine dining at its best, no doubt!
