To Al’s Bay – aka Ao Labu, West Coast of Koh Yao Yai
Alex and I went for an early snorkel, not meaning to go as far as yesterday, our two dots (not far from the corner) suggests we went quite a long way........
We stop to wave to Bear just as we found yesterday’s Nemo. Sadly, the tide was in and we had two more metres over the coral so visibility was even worse.
The At-Venturers on their way back to Beez Neez – lovely to have someone to snorkel big distances with.
After lunch, at a quarter past two, we set off for Al’s Bay, his choice and planned route of 8.9 nautical miles. The sky very, very dark.
Happy fishermen about their business.
The west coast of Koh Yao Yai has lots of sandy beaches. Then the heavens opened.
We saw several villages and resorts........
......including this one.........
............not yet finished.
Frigate birds made a nice change overhead.
Our hongs not so tall or sheer.
Lovely soft scenery.
A couple of stacks.......
.........and a line of fishermen.
The changing sky was a real treat whilst Alex beat us at Mexican train dominoes. Growl. Double Growl.
Sunset over what will always be – Al’s Bay.
ALL IN ALL MIXED WEATHER WITH A BEAUTIFUL SUNSET
VERY MESSY ONCE I INTRODUCED AL TO WHISKY AND GINGER.....
EXTREMELY DIFFICULT TO PLAY THEM AT TRI-OMINOES.......
