Railay Beach Day #2

We took a quick tour of Tham Pranangnai Cave on our way to Ao Ton Sai beach.

Evie really enjoyed the cave. I was surprised she wasn't scared considering how dark it was. She kept telling me she wanted to walk all by herself.

We thought our hike to the beach would be much shorter than it was. By the time the kids were tired and hungry a local said we still had about another half hour walk. Somehow adding kids to the equation can make anything seem like a marathon.

Finally, arriving at the beach.

Evie and I watched one of the locals unload supplies...

...actually we watched the kids playing in the water, excited the boat arrived. The eggs made it - they traveled on the front of the boat.

Our hotel is just on the other side of the rock you see. At low tide you can easily walk around it but that was a few hours away and the kids were already overdue for their naps...

...So for 500 Baht we took the 10 minute longboat ride back.

Playing in the pool after naps. Ethan's favorite thing is playing in the rocks. He loves throwing them in the pool to have us dive after them.
Railay Beach has so many jellyfish. We have all been stung many times by these small clear ones. Evie is scared of the water now, it's such a shame. We have spent more time at the pool than the ocean this trip. Evie does likes running down the beach and jumping over the jellyfish though.

More vacationers arriving. Turns out we weren't the only ones dragging our bags through the sand.

Later that evening when the tide was low we tried to walk back over to Ao Ton Sai from our beach, the beach we had lunch at in the pictures above. We didn't get far before Evie said she wasn't feeling well.

We didn't make it much further before we turned around and headed back to our bungalow. The kids went to bed early so Joel and I ordered room service and enjoyed a peaceful dinner outside watching the stars.
