Sunny, Rainy, Windy, Sunny Again

Some changeable weather the last 2 days. Yesterday I had wanted to visit Kata Temple in the afternoon, but the sun decided to take a holiday, and we had a thunderstorm. The rain was not only in Karon where I sat, but also in Kathu and Phuket Town. Thunderstorms tend to be isolated, but yesterday the heat broke with a bang all over Phuket! It's been quite windy the last 2 days too, though no big waves out at sea. The northeast winds can make things choppy, but not rough.

Today was mostly a beautiful blue skied day, but again the afternoon looked to be heading towards a wet conclusion.. Would I be thwarted again in my efforts to blog Kata Temple? No! Around 4:30 the sun broke through again and I was able to head along the road to the temple. As I arrived, a foreign lady was also arriving on a bike and when she did, all the temple dogs came out to greet her. She was feeding them - a volunteer from PAWS (the Phuket Animal Welfare Society). You can read more about Kata Temple on my Phuket Blog, and I'd like to write something about PAWS too.
