The weather forecast was for thunderstorms all day, but nothing ever materialized. Around 6:00pm it sprinkled lightly for 10 minutes, but stopped. We spent the day in our regular spot, in loungers around the pool nearest the beach, wandering between the ocean, the pool, and the food hut.

The resort is beginning to fill up. We had our first encounter with kids today, who were bouncing around in the water, knocking beach balls around. It wasn’t a problem, but I laughed at myself for being a little irritated about the noise and activity, after days of tranquility. I could hardly get in a good nap.
The sun was bright much of the day, so my hat has been out. I’m working to avoid sunburn. There’s no problem around the pool, but the ocean is warmer and fun, and there’s absolutely no shade today. I picked up a bit of reddish tint, but it doesn’t seem too bad.
At the end of the day, everyone scheduled another trip to the spa for massages. Judy and I went up to our room and dipped in the pool. We have a “pool access” room but hadn’t used it because everyone else was down at the ocean, and the nearby pool. It’s a beautiful setting, and if the others hadn’t been around, we’d have used it more.

My attempt at some “artistic” touches.
Tomorrow is our heading home day. It’s been a long trip, but we’ve had a blast. Check-out time is noon, but our airport transport isn’t scheduled until 9:00pm for our 1:00am flight from Phuket to Incheon, South Korea, and then on to DFW. We finished the day with dinner near the beach.
