Phuket, Thailand day 3-4 - Last days of the trip

  Our last full day in Thailand started at Kata Beach for the morning. Breakfast was just as good as the day prior - veggie sandwich and veggies   And beans and toast.

We later found out the haze was actually smoke from the Indonesia fires...not very good.    We stopped by Railay Beach first to pick up more people. Since we were a bigger boat we stayed out far and the smaller boats brought the people to us. It was fun to see the beaches where we were swimming from out in the water instead of on shore.      The rest of the ride was pretty uneventful, but quick. There was a couple sitting in front of us who talked for a good chunk of the time, at least 45 minutes, about who would like and comment on their photos when they post them to Facebook. Do you think Dan will? Yeah I think Dan will. What ab
