Arranged to have breakfast with Graeme and Judy at 9 am. We were woken up at 9.10 am by Graeme knocking on the door, so I guess you could say we had a good sleep. Phil was up at 4.30 am scratching around, but I slept all night. Breakfast was very average - not much to choose from.
After breakfast we caught a taxi to another shopping centrre and Judy and I bought clothes for our grandchildren; Graeme bought a pair of shoes; I bought a pair of sandals and Phil bought a cabin bag and another watch!! Came back to the hotel for lunch and arranged a "mangrove" tour from3.30 to 5.30 pm. Our driver took us to the river and we hopped on our boat and went slowly up the river looking at the mangroves. Very pleasant. Stopped at a fish farm and watched them feeding a lot of different varities of fish.
Continued on and went into the crocodile cave and then watched the big eagles feeding.
It then started pouring rain and we all got sopping wet. Put on our life jackets and decided not to go to the Andaman Sea as the rain was very heavy and it was probably too dangerous. We visited the bat cave. It was very dark and slippery but we did it and got even wetter.
Came back to the hotel looking like drowned rats, had a shower and happy hour and then had dinner in the hotel. This is supposed to be the dry season. What is going on?
The sky over the bay is stunning, but I want some sunshine shots please!
