We are monkeying around in Thailand, people!
After two days being lazy on the beach, we decided it was time to have an adventure! So we booked a tour and drove down to the harbor. Captain Mark sailed us past beautiful islands all around Phuket.
This cave was awesome – we were in there by ourselves until we were exiting.
After that, we went into another cave called the “Ice Cream Cave.”
It is called the ice cream cave because that is how the rock formation looks like an ice cream cone with caramel topping! Don’t you agree? At the end of the tunnel, there is a small opening where you can see a hidden Lagoon.
We also had a beautiful look at stalagmites and stalactites – some hanging down from the ceiling of the cave and some of the calcification forming below and joining it in the middle. It was fun seeing the calcites, because Mrs. Perry taught us about them this year in fourth grade. After the caves, everyone was hungry, so we retired to a little bay, where we took a dinghy to a secluded beach to have lunch.
Lunch included Tom Ka Chicken Soup, made out of coconut milk, one of my Thai favorites! While the cook was cooking lunch, we were definitely preoccupied by this crazy and hungry little monkey who tried to steal our food.
After lunch, we headed back to the harbor– but not without some excitement: First, I got to jump off the top of the boat!
Second, there were two big storms on either side of us, so we lowered our sails. We motored into the harbor just at the edge of the storms…. And then it was sunny again. https://youtu.be/0pkSh1QHPw0 Look for more posts from your Junior WorldTrek Reporter Keep Calm and Travel Around the World
