Beach & Longtail Boats




It was really great feeling sand between toes again and being next to the ocean! We always have this discussion if we prefer the ocean or mountains best. . .  and in Thailand you have both right up together and intertwined to explore. The beach was lined with really cool rock faces and we took a longboat and you kept seeing islands pop up in the distance with long little mountain formations in the middle of the ocean everywhere. Not sure if I'm describing it too well, but pretty scenic stuff.

Our longtail boat experience ended kinda traumatic though... and I mostly want to forget it, except not because it was a spiritual experience too.  We took the longtail boat out to a Railey Beach that is only accessible by boat. We spent hours exploring the hippish-town and seeing monkeys, on the way back though we got caught in a storm and our driver turned pirate and we became a rescue boat and collided with another boat in a storm and almost capsized (not exaggerating).  We were praying SO HARD and I felt terrible because it was my idea that it would be totally FINE with Luke and we were so close to falling out in the middle of the ocean in a storm.

It was kinda cool though because I had a feeling after praying from the Holy Ghost that everything was going to be OKAY. An inner calm and comfort came over and assurance that things would be alright even though we were still in the middle of the storm and going in the wrong direction. It just makes me happy to know that even in the swirly turmoil (literally) of life or any other trials we can have peace and know the outcome when we listen and pray.

  1. Best beach ever! I was there a few mounth ago. We saw that beautifull places because of rent the motorcycles. Our fast moving helped us to see more. Also we had own insurance of life. With motorcycles, guys here http://catmotors.net/health-and-life-insurance/ can not only render the scooter, but can protect your life, in some cases. In Asia road traffic is like a mess, so insurance was to us like big advantage.
