Finally some respite...

... a bit of dry spell on Tuesday afternoon, so we drove along the beach road from Laguna Phuket to Patong Beach.

It might have been overcast, but everyone wanted to get in some fun before the next deluge; I wondered when I would be allowed to go parasailing like these folks...

It might have been the collective sighs in blog-sphere, but He heard our desperate prayers and delivered the first blue skies and sunny day in weeks to Phuket!

These beauties sure knew how to welcome the sun with the most radiant of smiles.
Janelle was running a bit of a fever, so Mommy did not want to take unnecessary risks and stay too long under the sun. But Daddy refused to let our first beach sunset in months slip by, so we headed to Lotus by the beach for dinner. We went on a stroll to work up an appetite...

At dusk, a blanket of clouds started to gather over the horizon and cut short the sunset, but all in all, the day had been good, enough to call for a celebration... Chai yo!

Lovely images, Serline! Live the lily pads with their glorious blooms! Indeed they would bring a smile! I bet Janelle loved the feel of sand beneath her toes! :))
