That was after we has spent forty minutes or so snorkeling over the coral reef at the southern tip of the island, surrounded by fish of every colour of the rainbow who seemed as much interested in us as we were in them.
Earlier I’d finally got round to having a Thai massage on the beach which is quite an experience if you like having your kidneys crushed and your fingers snapped one by one.
The lady also insisted that I have my feet cleaned which involved soaking them in sweet smelling oils then giving them a good going over with coarse wet and dry. They were quite sore afterwards!
But as I said, it’s time to leave Ko Samet. We head off to Rayong later to meet up with Miss P for my birthday dinner and in a couple of days it will be back to the cold reality of blighty.
