A month in Thailand – a few lazy, stormy days
I was eating my breakfast this particular morning when it started coming, with strong winds, thunder and lightning and heavy clouds, rolling over the water and making the otherwise calm sea around the island seem agitated. A huge coconut leaf broke from a tree and feel in the middle of the dirt road leading to the sea. Luckily, no one was hurt.
The scuba diving school was taking their new apprentices out at sea for the first time and they seems a bit scared at the galloping storm.
But, like all storms I’ve seen over there, it passed swiftly and just a bit of calm, warm rain was still falling when I decided to take a dip in the ocean. Warm water from above and beneath, a lovely feeling to experience.
The next day after breakfast wind pick-ed up again and the waves were forming. Sea level rose a bit as we noticed when we went for a swim. I picked up more coral along the way.
The workers from Wind Beach were cutting the coconuts and unsteady leaves from the trees. Coconuts had different sizes and the bigger ones were quickly cut open and drank from. Weird enough, in this first Thailand vacation I didn’t have any coconut water.
Around here everyone drives a scooter or motorcycle, I was one of the very few walking. I took a walk to south east end of the island, along the beach, taking a few photos, playing with a black cat.
Another day, another sunset from Koh Tao 🙂
