Ko Samet Island, Thailand

Thailand - #2 or  China - #9

Ah, the beach.  After a long, slow bus ride from Bangkok, we board the ferry to Ko Samet Island.  When we arrive, we are ready to do -- nothing!

Ferry to Ko Samet Island

Ko Samet Island taxi service…

Seat belts?  

Pile in...

If not getting about in a taxi, then a scooter will work…

Ed and I explored for a couple of hours one afternoon.
Brad and Yessi used this beast for hours and hours for
 both day and night exploration. 

This is what greeted us…

This is where we stayed...

And this is how we played…

Skin diving boat.  Would you believe they filled this boat
with 30+ folks, making five stops for diving, one for lunch.
It was crowded!

What felt absolutely devine, was just doing nothing...

There isn't a lot one can say about unwinding on a beach, except to say, we found the Thailand people the most friendly and welcoming people anywhere.  The water was so warm we could swim for hours and so salty we floated high.

Beauty prevailed...



               "The serenity of the lulling ocean is a wondrous thing to behold..more precious
                               than the gems coveted and covered in platinum or gold…"
