The sun has got his hat on
Sunday 16th July - Glorious day. Hoorah. Too much rain last week, I really needed a dose of sun. The rain gets everything green, but on Sunday, everything was shining. We took a drive around - I fancied some fresh air, and where better than up the highest hill in Phuket - Radar Hill. You can see a view over Patong Beach below:

The wind was still blowing. We drove along Kata beach and there was not much beach to be seen as the wind was pushing the waves so high up. Same story at Karon, which I have to say was looking very neat and tidy. There's been a lot of work in Karon over the last couple of years and now it puts Patong to shame, though the trouble with Karon is, there ain't much there except the hotels..
Monday - another hot day, mostly sunny, though there was a brief shower in the afternoon. Sea looking a bit calmer.
News - Phuket was nowhere near the tsunami/earthquake that struck Southern Java yesterday more than 2,000km from here. BBC News Report
