Breakfast was full today from all the conference people which means a bigger selection of food.
After breakfast Melissa and I hired some bikes for 40 baht each and rode up to the fishing village. It was interesting seeing the changes over the last four years. There is a new hotel being built not far from here - before the bridge. There is a massive new - don't know how to describe it - shed with a whole heap of Buddhas and animals in there to worship. Look at photos!!!
The monks have spent a fortune on it.
Despite the heat and sun we made it to the fishing village and rode along the pier to the end then stopped on the way back for photos. 'The boat' that we have seen on each trip here is almost non-existent now. You can't even call it a boat any more and some would not even believe you if you said it used to be a boat.
We stopped at the temple thing on the way back and the chicken memorial for the King then gladly handed the bikes back. Back to the room then I came down for a much welcome swim and cool off. Mel continued sorting photos.

We headed down for an afternoon swim at about 4pm but David and Sassi dropped by to invite us for tea in a few days. We sat and talked next to the pool for ages - we never did get that swim!!

Dee Lek for dinner.
