We found our first wow spot in Thailand today. Vick’s comment, “This is one of those places that you just can’t believe exists on our planet until you see it.” True enough. It was a short, easy day of sailing (mostly downwind) from our Tarutao anchorage to Ko Phetra. We had no guide books or recommendations to lead us and it wasn’t until we were about 4 nm away that we knew we were on to something.
After anchoring down we had some administrative work to attend to (school work, cleaning, watermaking, etc.) but after it was all sorted, we hopped into the dinghy and took a tour of the coast that was just enchanting. We explored limestone monoliths and caves and at the end of our time, discovered a perfect hidden beach with caves and climbable cliffs. Trevor joined us for a second visit and we really mapped it out.
Our perfect day ended with sundowners on Convivia, and a snacky dinner. We’ll sleep well tonight.
All is well.
