July 17: The Beach!

Just a short update today, as much of the day was spent "in transit". It's about a two hour flight from Chiang Mai down to Phuket. We timed things a little wrong and we spent quite a bit of time waiting at the hotel for Nat to arrive, and then because we were on a "domestic" flight, checkin was very quick (despite the fact that Security took away my Leatherman tool again!). Our hotel is about an hour's drive from the Phuket airport, so it was mid-afternoon before we finally arrived. But we had time for a few hours of fun in the largest of the resort's three pools. Then we went for a walk down to the beach, where we celebrated our first touch of sand and beach and the ocean (the Andaman Sea, to be precise). We ended the day with a walk into the nearby town and a delicious dinner at a local seafood restaurant.
