Snorkeling and More tapas
Ivan, Jennifer and I woke up early on April 4, 2009. Today, we were going on a snorkeling tour. We were picked up a little after 8:30 am. We boarded the boat. The weather wasn’t good. It started raining. Ivan and Jennifer went snorkeling at our first stop. There wasn’t much to see though – only a few fish.
The boat was taken to another snorkeling place.
There were so many fish in the water. I sat on a life vest while Jennifer pushed me around. A few people on the boat were throwing bread into the water. The fish went crazy and all came to the area. Ivan and Jennifer were surrounded by fish. I could see them from the life vest. There were hundreds of them. We were supposed to head to a place where you can swim with sharks. Unfortunately, the waters were too rough. So, we had to skip it.
It was time to eat lunch on the boat. I brought along three bananas for me. Ivan and Jennifer ate the boxed lunch. It consisted of rice with an over medium egg and some chicken. It was good but not a big meal.
It’s really nice to be on a boat. The boat passed by some great scenery.
We were taken to Japanese Gardens. It was time for more snorkeling. Ivan and Jennifer enjoy snorkeling. They think it’s nice to look underwater. It’s nice to see all types of fish.
Our last stop was Ko Nang Yuan. It’s 100 Baht per person for the entry fee. I hid in the dry bag so I wouldn’t get charged. The island doesn’t allow people to bring in plastic bottles. We were allowed an hour on the island. Ivan and Jennifer were both really tired. Jennifer and I took a nap. Ivan wanted to explore the island – but he was too tired. He read magazines.
We went back on the boat. We arrived back at Ko Tao sometime after 4 pm. Everybody was tired. We relaxed in the room. We also took a short nap.
Ivan, Jennifer and I walked to Papa’s Tapas for dinner. I ordered the same thing as last night. It was great again. Ivan and Jennifer ordered their favorite tapas – spinach risotto, home made potato chips with salsa and pumpkin gazpacho. They also ordered a main course of prawn skewers. For dessert, they ordered a white chocolate panacotta with raspberry. Ivan and Jen enjoyed their meal.
Ivan wanted to check out Fizz. It’s a bar right by the beach. There’s seating on the beach. Also, there’s tables with green bean bags. We sat on the bean bags. They’re quite comfortable. Ivan and Jennifer ordered a drink. I had a lovely banana and mango juice. We walked back to resort to get some rest.
