Samui - Day 3

I had lots to do yesterday. Really, I do not know where the time goes.

Here is a picture from the afternoon beach chair. Those of you who are paying attention may realise that I had to sit approximately three meters to the right of where I was the day before. To be honest, it did not seem so different to me.

I did take more than one picture...here are the non-beach shots from yesterday. The picture on the left is a boat in the surf. On the right is the main road as it is going into Chaweng Beach...that is about a mile from my hotel and I walked the whole way and back.

One thing that really surprises me is how easy it is to forget that Chaweng Beach alone is three and a half miles long. This is a problem because I will think to myself "hey, I'll head over to that dodgy mightclub around the corner" and its a 2 mile walk (remember its over 30 degrees and I am lazy). So, I end up having a coffee instead. Oh, maybe that is a good thing.

Later today, I am going to a bar in the next village to watch the sun set. Appropriately, it is called The Sunset Bar. I was feeling pretty stupid when I forgot the name and had to look it up. There is also a place called the BBC restaurant, in case the first one is crap. And of course this all assumes I won't forget, or fall asleep.

Anyway, looking ahead even farther: I am going to take a tour around the island tomorrow (by car). I think I need to give the beach a rest. Or my skin.
