Day 26. Phuket, bits and pieces day

Breakfast, same time, same place. Today’s walk is north on Patong Beach, it’s high tide, there is a little detritus on the beach, old toothbrushes and thongs with barnacles on them. The question, how do they get in the ocean, do people just say “oh cleaned my teeth and the brush is a little tired – ahhh just toss it in the sea?” It’s warm, humid, normal for this place this time of the year, the pace is brisk and we make it to Diamond Cliff Resort in 40 minutes with a nice old sweat soaking my t-shirt. A walk back along the footpath takes 35 minutes, dodging massage girls and tuk tuk drivers.

The Banthai pool is needed to bring our core temps down a bit until mid afternoon when we wander off going our own ways for a snack and an iced coffee ( for me) a massage for him.

Mr Siam meets us right on 5pm and out to Kamala to Tommy Fashion we go for final fitting check, all is good so a couple of Singha’s and dinner guest of Mr Siam’s (again). Tonight I have fish (a grilled sole) and Dale has a stir fry garlic chicken dish, both dishes are so good and so filling. We’re back in Patong at 7.30 for swim and some tidy up shopping. Bag shopping that is, TMM is now a confirmed “P” plater bag shopper, he bought a Huxley knock off backpack to fit all the girl stuff he bought for the females in his life, one in particular. Still not in his Aunties class when it comes to buying bags.

Tomorrow is the last day, we have Oz organised to pick us up at 5.30pm, flight leaves at 10.20pm Jetstar direct to Sydney

Ciao from Phuket – Pauolo
