After city life in Bangkok we headed to the beach in Phuket for a little R & R. Charlotte “dove” in immediately finishing up her scuba certification, even taking the boat out without the rest of us on the first day. The second day we joined her so we were all there to congratulate her when she became an official open water diver! The kids used most of their free time to catch up on school work and enjoy our huge pool.
We managed to squeeze in a couple beach days and even a round of the flu for Trevor and I. The town we stayed in was quaint with lots of little shops and restaurant. We enjoyed dinner on the beach one night where the tide came all the way up to the restaurant and we could enjoy the beautiful full moon.
Charlotte finally found a place to get her island braids done…she’d been searching since we left home. Michael also got to tick one off his wish list renting a scooter to put around town. The weather was hot but the ocean was a great place to cool off. By the end of our week we were rested up and ready for Christmas in Krabi.
