DAY TWELVE Today was a much more mellow day, which was nice. After breakfast we all couldn’t wait to head down to the beach. It was a little cloudy, but there were some sun breaks here and there. It was so beautiful. We mostly just played in the sand and put our feet in the water. Everybody loved it. Then we came back and swam in the pool. It was the first time I was actually cold. And none of the hot tubs are hot. They are usually the same temperature as the pool. After we all changed the whole gang piled in the van to drive around the island. It was so amazing. We had lunch at a place right by the sea. After lunch, Apichat asked if we wanted to go on a boat ride. We all couldn’t wait. The boat was a 3 story yacht. We went out into the Andaman Sea which goes into the Indian Ocean. The water was turquoise and beautiful. We kept going out more and more and it was sunny and gorgeous, but then it got stormy. The boat was rocking like crazy! Judah didn’t like it and it made me slightly nervous too. But it quickly passed. We stopped for a bit as the sun came back out and sat on the back of the boat and dipped our feet in. We were hoping to see some exotic fish or shards or something…but not that day. The ride back was just as beautiful and we even saw a rainbow. By the time we got back we only had about an hour until dinner. The boys swam again and for dinner Charles and Jo took the boys while Andy, Josie and I stayed behind. Josie was so tired. Sarah, Edmund, Andy and I all split a pizza and sat out on the deck and just relaxed.
