Day 19. This morning we spotted a beautiful kingfisher in the trees, see photo, followed by a frog falling out of the folds of a sun parasol. It must be a climber to get up the pole, but why it wanted to sleep in a parasol is anybody's guess.

After breakfast a splinter group set off to find the village fishing port. Down by the temple (wat) we found a cluster of buildings on stilts either side of a concrete jetty leading to the fishing fleet which was all in port as night fishing is the norm. A few inhabitants were mending and coiling their nets, but no fish to be bought.

Lunch today was at Saffron on the sea, several whole fish being served with a glass of sauvignon blanc or beer.

Returning home we plunged into the pool as today has been one of our hottest at 35C and then we watched the sun set.

That fish looks a bit grumpy. Were there any one-eyed toads or frogs? I'd have liked to watch you getting onto that lilo!x
