Sunshine wins. The haze is gone.
Over the last few days the haziness has decreased. Today was a totally sunny day, hot, but not too hot (a bit of a breeze). The seas are calm and now that we are into the high season for diving, it's a-getting busy. Had reports over the last couple of days of Manta rays at Hin Daeng. Oh yes, its time to strap a tank on and dive in! For diving in Phuket, go and see Sunrise Divers.
We had a "work lunch" today at a restaurant called "The Beach", which is right on Patong beach at the end of Sawatdirak road. I mean right on the beach with some of the tables on the sand. Considering this, it's not expensive at all. I had a steak sandwich with a pile of chips for 70 Baht. It's recommended if you're in Patong.
Even better news, we got a new computer at home. I was glad to find that Skype works on dial up. So here I am blogging while listening to Pink Floyd on the headphones while my wife convinces the kids that 10pm is too late to be awake.
Ticking away the moments that make up a dull day
You fritter and waste the hours in an off hand way
Kicking around on a piece of ground in your home town
Waiting for someone or something to show you the way
Tired of lying in the sunshine staying home to watch the rain
You are young and life is long and there is time to kill today
And then one day you find ten years have got behind you
No one told you when to run, you missed the starting gun
And you run and you run to catch up with the sun, but its sinking
And racing around to come up behind you again
The sun is the same in the relative way, but you're older
Shorter of breath and one day closer to death
Every year is getting shorter, never seem to find the time
Plans that either come to naught or half a page of scribbled lines
Hanging on in quiet desperation is the english way
The time is gone, the song is over, thought I'd something more to say
(from "Time" by Pink Floyd)
