Up and out for breakfast, the sun was shining and both of us were feeling much better (except for HMRC wanting tax returns by the end of January, reality bites!).

The cleaner knocked on the door several times to which we shouted "no cleaning thanks", she was still there after three shouts, prompting an annoyed Paula to open the door and repeat "no cleaning" agitated, the woman understood immediately.

Out and about to enjoy the day, we went to Loh Dalum Bay and hired a 'tri-yak' (as opposed to a kayak) and explored Monkey Beach - we snorkelled, watched the monkey's play, had barbequed corn-on-the-cob and then paddled back to shore and got ready to go out.

We decided to try and find a nice restaurant for Paula's now very belated birthday dinner, after the disappointment of the previous night, and headed for Anna's restaurant which was reassuringly busy when we arrived (it was also rated the No.1 resaturant on the island on trip advisor). The food and wine was of a much bettter quality, and the ambience very pleasant. As we ate a rain storm came over so we ordered another carafe and tried to wait it out, but it just got heavier!

Bugger it, we walked bare foot through the puddles until we got to Reggae Bar where we watched some more 'Thai' boxing over two buckets of vodka and coke, and one bucket of God knows what?..(donated by a lad who was boxing and couldn't drink it)....wisened old alcoholics that we are, we could only manage half - it was so strong.

Home to bed feeling rather tipsy, sweet dreams.
