Lots to sea and do
Ava and I signed up for a round-the-island cruise today. Hot, sunny weather had Ava scuttling for shade at first (white skin is as desirable in Asia as tannned skin is in the West). But a cooling breeze eventually tempted her out of her cocoon [see photo].
The trip included a couple of stops for snorkelling which we really enjoyed, freshly cooked lunch, a chance for some fishing (the crew caught and grilled a couple of fish, but none of the 7 passengers managed any catches), and a trip to a fish farm/zoo (which included small sharks, large turtles and various pretty and ugly fish).
Ava had bought three different bikinis for the holiday(!) and was keen to try each, having not had a chance to wear them before. So once we got back to our bunglaow, and spurred on by our snorkelling adventure, we had our first swim in the sea opposite our balcony. Very warm water and we were the only people in sight. A sudden downpour saw us scuttling back to the beach - well we didn't want to get wet!
