This is more like a quick photo post.
Apart from the beaches we encountered while island hopping, we also indulged in a few beaches (in the Kata area) during the 4 days we were in Phuket. So here are some photos to depict the relaxed mood of our vacation!
On our second day there, we took a very, very long walk after breakfast just to explore the place. And we discovered this beach. It was well-hidden and we had to go down this very steep flight of stairs to get to it.
But once we got to the end of the steps and jumped off the final step to the sand (I promise we were not trespassing though it sure sounds like it!), we found a small but nice beach with big waves.
Here you go:
Shoes came off and we went barefooted and just soaked up the view, the wind and the sand.
Because it was a really small beach, we didn’t spend too much time there. But before we left, I had this photo of myself taken:
It was the hardest thing ever for me to climb up the rocks. Almost gave up, but pushed on anyway. By the time I got off the rocks, I was wet from waves. I kinda like this photo – I look young and happy. While I know I typically look younger than I am, this one beats all odds. I look like I’m 16! And I look like.. genuinely happy and relaxed. That’s a rare combination, considering I’m such a grouch.
So the rest of the photos below are random snippets of beaches we chanced upon on day 1. Not really too sure of the names because we tend to just enter the beach instead of looking for a sign of the beach name.
Footprints on the beach:
The photo below was taken just before all the sand on my feet were shaken off.
This was taken late afternoon before we headed for dinner that first evening. Recliner chairs, abandoned for the day having done their job.
And finally, our very first sunset in Phuket:
Phuket = beautiful beaches!
