Our second day in Krabi town was just a half day. We had until 2pm to hang out and explore before we headed off to Phuket. We got up early and went in search of breakfast hopeful that some of the places that were closed the night prior would be open - and luckily they were! Well a lot were still closed, but the best looking place was open so it was perfect.
Raymond's plate of food
And mine - only $1.25! Such a steal and super delicious. We both had rice noodles and yakisoba and ham log, and Raymond got some greens and I tried a curry looking thing with lots of weird vegetables I had never had before. It was pretty tasty, but it was a fish curry with mock fish in it and well I have never been a seafood fan so probably not my best choice. I just went by what things looked like since I don't read Thai.
After lunch we went to explore Wat Kaew Korawaram up on the hill.
There was this abandoned park along the stairway up to the temple with wild animal statues in
This was my favorite temple we went to. I loved how it was just white with blue accents. Really beautiful. I liked it much more than the really ornate ones. And instead of Buddha statues statues these gold balls. Not sure what they were as I couldn't read the sign.

Elephant hiding in the abandoned park
All the streetlights downtown looked like this. There was supposed to be an art museum next to the temple, but we searched for it and it didn't look like it was open anymore. By that time I was getting way too hot so we went back to the room to cool off and relax until checkout.
Oh and eat some treats we got at the breakfast place. This was a rice flour thing filled with sugar and sesame seeds and super tasty, though Raymond thought it was weird.
And some sugary crunchy toasts
Some peanut brittle-ish stuff, though not sweet
And some green rice flour things which didn't have a lot of flavor. They were just squishy.
Checkout was noon so we left our bags there and went to explore along the waterfront again.
It is hard to tell, but you can see a few dots of light in the photo above and if you look closely (or click on the photo to enlarge it) you can see these skinny translucent fish. They were all along the shore.
A tiny sandy area with lots more sand crabbies! The walkway was a ways above so we just stood by the railing and watched them all make their little sand balls for a while.There were so many of them.
We wandered until I was overheating again and then went to cool off with some smoothies! Mixed berry for Raymond and watermelon for me (which btw the watermelon stayed frozen forever which is perfect when it is hot outside).
Hogwarts Hostel - we saw a sign on the road, but I couldn't tell if it was a Harry Potter thing or not. Apparently it is! Though that Ron cut out is odd as it has that large white area where you put your head so it doesn't really look right...
Then back to the same place we had breakfast for some lunch before we headed out. So much food and so tasty! This was actually the last day of the vegetarian festival so the last of the tasty festival foods. Even though I wasn't the biggest fan of Thailand I would definitely go back for the festival again and eat all the foods! Yum!
After lunch we headed off to Phuket, but that will be a post for another day.
So when we were wandering around Colmar and spying on all the things we saw a sign that we happened to be in Colmar on a free night at the museum! So most of the museums in town were free from 7pm-11pm/midnight (depending on the museum). So we of course had to go check them out! There were only four in town so we were able to go to all of them, though by the end we were so tired and our feet were so sore from a long day of exploring and long night of museums. First up was the Museum Bartholdi, but I didn't take any photos in there (I wasn't sure I was allowed and it was super busy, so many people!). It was super tiny, but interesting. There were a lot of models of ideas he had for different monuments and then what he actually ended up using. The one room was just ideas and designs for the Statue of Liberty which was cool. There wasn't a lot there, but what there was I enjoyed. Then it was over to the Natural History and Ethnology Museum Cool bugs
Oh San Francisco. What a wonderful time I had there. It was absolutely beautiful the entire time. Sunny, warm, gorgeous. Plus getting to spend a few days with Jacalen and Patricia = So much fun! We definitely need to do more girls trips! This will be a mostly picture post I arrived late afternoon and the bus dropped me off near Fishermans Wharf and I walked over to where we were staying. Oh, it was gorgeous outside, but with my bags and such I was a bit warm. Not expecting that in February! Patricia arrived a bit after I did and we had the evening to ourselves to do whatever we wanted! It was so nice out and we were staying in the Marina District so it was just a short walk down to the water. Beautiful! After wandering along the waterfront for a bit it was time for some dinner! We happened to find the Plant Cafe and I got a plant burger with fries and a salad. Really tasty! Afterwards we went to get a drink and noticed the bar had trivia on Tue
