Where I stayed
Haad Yao Villas
On the 9th, we took a long walk up to where there were other hotels/guesthouses. We then relaxed and hung out at our place.
Wednesday we did nothing but lay around on the beach. Well.... we did some snorkelling and swimming- but not much else!
Thursday (the 11th) we went on a snorkelling trip with a longtail boat (we are getting good use of our snorkels!)
Friday the 12th we rented a scooter- Hello Kitty Scooter! ha ha....made it easy to locate in a line of scooters! We drove down to Baan Tai- where we got a flat tire. We needed to also replace the whole tire (not just the tube). He was going to charge us 600Baht ($20), but then said he had a used tire he could use, and only charge 230Baht. The used tire said "Front use only" but he was putting it on the back tire! ha ha...he said it was fine. But he also said- don't tell when you return scooter! ha ha! Drove down to Haad Rin, checked out a few places to stay for tomorrow night and saw the beaches. Then drove all through the interior of the island up to Chaloklum (it did not take nearly as long as we thought it would- less than an 1 hour to get to the other end of the island!)
Saturday (today), we checked out of Haad Yao Villas, took a taxi down to Haad Rin Nok (Sunrise Beach), and have checked in at The Rock.
Tomorrow we are taking a boat to Haad Yuan, and hoping to be able to get accomodations there (can be hard during High Season, as there are only a couple places at this beach). But we have to check out our friend Rob's Happy Place!!!
That's all for now! We are loving the sun and beaches!
