Our Khao Tao Adventure

It was a relatively cool day so we headed to the beach for a walk.  Little did we know we would end up walking 10 kilometers to the village of Khao Tao.  There are many things to see and we had a great time.

                                          A very creative way to make art from beach trash

Looking back toward our condo

 After a leisurely 3 hour walk we found a seaside restaurant at the end of the beach and had an ice coffee, Isaan Laab Moo and Khao Pad Gai

 After our late lunch we decided we couldn't make it home by the beach and then saw these dark storm clouds quickly rolling in.  We didn't know where we could find a taxi and needed to find shelter fast!

We found a covered bus stop. We started out sitting down on the bench but very quickly stood on the bench as the water was raising in the street and cars were driving by quickly and splashing  water on the sidewalk.  We waited out the storm in the company of a small bird after which we found a coffee shop and asked where we could find a taxi.  He said to walk into the village and maybe we would find one at 7-11.  The nice man at the coffee shop gave us plastic bags to put our cameras in!

So we headed the direction we had just come from and luckily we saw a taxi and waved him over. He had a fare and said he would be right back.  As we drove to the village we realized we were nearly a mile away from 7-11.   It took us 10 minutes by car to get home!   We had a great day and laughed at being stuck in the rain.
