Children's Day in Phuket and more

The last time that we visited Vichit Park (ศูนย์ออกกําลังกาย) it certainly was busy but there was no where near as many balloons as there were here today!

There was a plethora of activities for the children but I was taken by the Traditional Sword Dancing on a stage. This reminded me of a Tweet by Richard Barrow regarding the contribution of the Military on this special day.

We did not last long and we headed for Laem Ka beach - a small beach where we have visited previously. Now this beach is not the most obvious beach to find - in fact I thought that we were going in the wrong direction.

We enjoyed ourselves on the beach and Jemma found a number of children to play with - it was not until we went for a swim that I remembered that it was very rocky - so remember - swim carefully.

Then the wedding brigades arrived 

along with speed boats full of tourists - not the right mix I would imagine. I like the weddings which we do at  Cape Panwa.

After seeing three of these and running out of sticky rice and chicken we left to join Olivier at The Beach Bar where we also met Jamie 

The deep fried fish in lemon grass was wonderful and the company was always a pleasure. A wonderful day off.

Happy Children's Day
