Thinking back to this day it was a bit of an uneventful day. What i mean by that is I got up nice and early, went for a walk the sun was shining. Sunbathed and swam in the clear blue sea most of the day. Spent a bit of time with Sarah and Chris. Decided we'd do a snorkling trip the next day so we booked that and went for a bit of a pre-snorkle in the waters off pattaya beach. I took Them to jungle bar for lunch after i told them ho much i enjoyed my dinner the previous day. After their meal they agreed that that was the best thai curry they have ever had! Went for my second thai massage on the beach at 5pm which was sooooo good. As agreed yesterday with Chrsi the plan tonight was to go out and get hammered. The reason if we needed one was I was leaving for a different resort tomorrow - a good bye send off!
That night we had dinner on the beach (bbq) which was really nice. This was swilled down with several large strong chang beers. Not before

Tooo many changs for Chris...O and me...maybe!
long we were feeling the effects and feeling good. On route to a different bar we got talking to a big group of chinese and thai people who were having a beer, playing the guitar and singing songs on the beach. We were invited to join them and join in (or did we invite ourselves...i think we did!). Chris could play the guitar too so he played a few songs he knows. Anyway we had a really good laugh with them and then moved on. The night was getting late and after a few more of thailands finest beers and few puffs of thailad finest blow, Chris decided it was time to turn green & go home. Before I or sarah could persuade him otherwise he was gone. Me and Sarah walked back expecting to find Chris unconsious on the beach actually found him yes unconsious but in his shower room curled up next to the toilet...nice! This i must tell you i dont actually remember this has been recalled by Sarah and by photgraphic evidence.

Woke up wondering where the hell am I?. Took a

Its nearly time for Chris to go......
few seconds for me to get my head together then started to think how the hell did i get to bed? Needless to say i was feeling hungover after drinking way way tooooo many chang beers (6.4% volume) with the swedish couple. From what i can remember it was a good fun night. Spent the next 20 minutes stumbling around in a daze trying to organise myself and pack all my stuff - as checking out this morning and moving to the other side of the island to sunset beach - but this is later after my snorkling trip.
After breakfast i checked on the swedish couple and to see if they were up and ready. Chris was still in bed, semi conscious and feeling pretty rough like myself.
Snorkling trip was a full day trip and it involved going to 5 sites around the Tatutao National Marine Park. It was stunning!!!!!!! The snorkling in each site was superb and all pretty differnet to each other. The first site was off this tiny island, the water was really really deep, but you could see right to the bottom as the water was so clear. It was like swimming

He off, Chris is off doing his runner
in a giant fish tank. The second site was my favourite and by far the best. There were masses of coral which was untouched, really beautiful and there was so much fish life. I made a few good friends with some fish - firstly there was a shole of small little fish that took a shine to me and they all followed me and swam around my body. Then later a single, big kind of angel fish also took a shine to me. This one would swim right up to your mask / face and around my face. I just lost myself in this underwater world as apparently the boat was looking for me and waiting for me for ages. During the day i saw loads of nemo fish and also some pretty scary looking fish - stayed away from them. No sharks today!! We stopped off at some lovely secluded beaches to, had lunch and also snorkled from these beaches too. Whilst relaxing on a beach having lunch we also bumped into the chinese / thai group that we were drinking and singing with the previous night.
During the afternoon i started to flag and tire. So i

And he's totally gone. Down and out!!!!!
fell asleep under a tree for an hour or so.
Got back around 4pm and moved over to sunset beach. It was a 20 minute walk and as i was carrying my rucksack it was a tiring experience and i was sweating like a pido in a playground. Got myself a beachfront bungalow right on the beach for the next 2 nights. Its pretty basic but clean and has a much needed mosquite net.
Met Sarah and Chris (swedish couple) for dinner at Jungle bar and I ate so much. Had a prawn spicy soup, sprint roles and a green thai curry - it was all really spicy but really really nice - the food is simply the best on the island! All 3 of us was really tired and still hungover so we all had an early night. I was in bed for 7.30pm and fell asleep to the sound of the waves and the sounds of thunder and flashes of lightning.
