'Round Phuket

Koh Panyi (Muslim fishing village on stilts)
After returning the rental car, the second part of Nana's visit was spent taking Perry around to some of the local anchorages. We are still getting used to how tourist-y everything is here. And there are a lot of other boats, especially charters. As soon as you put down your anchor, a charter boat plunks down nearby (many times very nearby), then another and another.

Phuket--It's better with Nana!

Ko Phanak
With all the stuff squirreled away in Nana's humongous suitcase (things we had ordered as well as gifts from Nana, Grandpa and others), it was like an early Christmas when she arrived. Of course the best gift of all was Nana herself!

What do you do all day?

'What do you do all day?' is one of the most common questions we get, along with 'What do you eat?' People either have a hard time imagining our daily lives or they just envision us laying on the beach and sipping umbrella drinks.
