Day five on Ko Lanta

Today was day five on Ko Lanta. Our last day here.

Today I didn't want any special adventures. I just wanted to have a peaceful and relaxing day, like our first day here, and that's what we did.

We ate breakfast at The Drunken Sailor, renewed our scooter rental for one more day, then headed over to the beach in front of the SunMoon Resort. We were able to find a couple of hammocks under shade for rent, and we kicked back with our books. I was aiming to finish 44 Scotland Street by Alexander McCall Smith today, since I'd borrowed it from The Drunken Sailor and needed to return it this evening.

We had lunch on the restaurant on the beach. We went for a swim in the beautiful warm waters. And we read. Not much more. Perfect. Just what I was looking for.

As the sun was getting low on the horizon we headed over to a bar at Hat Nui again to watch it set. Then we went back to our scooter rental place, which doubles as a travel agency, to book a ride to tomorrow's destination. (7:00 AM departure. Ick.) We had a decent dinner at a place with great service, called the Jungle View Restaurant. Then back here to finish off the last three day's blogs.

To those of you who have been kind enough to read these postings, my apologies for the lack of images in the recoen
