Otherwise known as rest, relaxation and knitting...But the day began first with breakfast at a small establishment just up the road where we had eaten an excellent omelette the day before. Yesterday we had to point at the eggs and vegetables, and mime the process, but today all we had to do was to say "same" and she with a wonderful smile went to work.
And then we caught the Songthaew to the town centre, and from there the songthaew to Surin Beach. Once again we did the sarong dance, and this time Lloyd was able to use the sarong to change into his trunks. Then off into the ocean for a frolic in the waves before retiring to the shade for beer and pineapple! And a little knitting...
After another dip in the ocean, we had lunch at one of the vendors just above the beach--there is a large Muslim population in rural Phuket and this young woman was grilling chicken satay and corn.
|It's a very unassuming place--the one under the blue banner, with the green box on the left and the white box on the right.|
|Chopping vegetables in her kitchen, facing the street.|
|A view into the sizzling wok of vegetable oil--one omelette in process.|
|Here she is--queen of her domain.|
|The pineapple was delicious.|
|Lloyd feels positively svelte beside some of these European men!!|
|Lloyd waiting for his satay to cook. I had the corn--yum!|
|We returned to the hotel by about 4 PM and I happily continued knitting, and enjoyed a glass of South African white wine.|
