Sunshine, Swimming and Hospitals
Saturday was not to plan! We were greeted by another beautiful day with blue skies, scattered clouds, no sign of rain. Does anyone believe me yet that the low season is a good time to come to Phuket?!
We decided to take a picnic and were driving off towards Cape Panwa looking forward to great views from the Khao Kad viewpoint. Didn't get there. Stopped at a 7-11 to buy water and my boy managed to fall out of the car and did not get any hands, arms, elbows or anything else in the way of his head. Nasty bash on the head and it was bleeding quite a bit. We were only 5 minutes away from Phuket International Hospital when it happened, which was lucky. Phuket is blessed with very good health services, but make sure you are insured! Poor boy did not enjoy having 4 stitches in his head.
Of course he soon felt better and ate sandwiches and cakes at the hospital before we went home again. Boys do tend to soldier on. Later in the afternoon he managed to get a bleeding lip too when playing rough and tumble with a friend!
Lovely afternoon for a swim, though. My daughter had her first proper swimming lesson. She loves the water.
Today is just as warm and sunny, but the winds are a blowing from the west, so the beaches are a bit rough. But great weather for getting out and exploring Phuket.
