Koh Phi Phi, white sand :)

We are getting close to the end of our adventure so we decided to spend a few days chilling on a tropical beach island. We headed down to Koh Phi Phi in search of rest, sun and a lovely beach. Koh Phi Phi is a fantastic little tropical paradise and we had a lovely place to stay but being rainy season we also got a fair amount of clouds and afternoon rainstorms. We woke up early for the sunrise and got this lovely pre-dawn beach shot.

Michelle has adapted to the ambient temperature.
When it drops below 27 degrees she gets out a hoodie.
English summer may be a problem.

Sadly the clouds were too heavy to get any good sunrise photos but we weren't all by ourselves on the beach we had this little crab neighbour. 

Reassuring they have a tsunami evacuation route,
 makes a difference to the normal fire exit sign.

In the day the weather improved and we went back to the beach to chill in some deck chairs, do a bit of reading and relaxing :D  

Michelle reverted to 15 and had a Smirnoff Ice

Off the beach we did a little bit of snorkelling and found some great fish just meters from the shore.

The resort had a great little pool that was actually colder then the sea. So we dipped in their for a bit and generally relaxed on a beach. 

Only a few days until we head home.


  1. Hi really love that last photo of Michelle looking out to sea.
    England is going to seem very drab.
    lots of love

  2. 27 degrees and under is a tad on the cold side! I wish that i'd taken a cardigan to work today because it was a bit chilly! Looking forward to seeing you guys on Saturday x
