A sad farewell 

All good things come to an end and so it was, that all of a sudden, it was time for our dear friends to leave us and depart Thailand. 

Enjoying the luxury of the resort’s thatched cottages

We had loved their company and had very much enjoyed the luxury of their spacious and comfortable thatched bungalows and all the other facilities in a superb resort – it made a very luxurious change from a sailboat in the rain.

Of course the weather was wet and windy on their last day but we managed to fill the day drinking cocktails, eating and doing last minute shopping.

Good friends, good times
We farewelled the famous five at Tha Krao Pier on Koh Yao Noi and made the decision not to rush off but to stay and enjoy an extra few days on this beautiful island.

This is our story.
