And the heat goes on
And another week as passed in a blur. Phuket is hot and sunny almost all the time, except when it gets too hot and nature takes over with a thunderstorm. Light winds, fairly calm seas, yes, it's March in Phuket and the weather is good. I do apologise for a lack of updates, just there is very little to update. The last serious rainfall was on the 8th and 9th (evening thunderstorms) and since then just a few light showers such as we had this very evening. I have not been out and about with my camera, no time really - high season working 6 days per week. I wrote a blog article on Jamie's Phuket about my work - Diving Phuket with Sunrise Divers. If you want to dive, please do contact me - email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (mobile) 08 4626 4646 during office hours any day except Saturday which is my normal day off.
So .. no photos.. well, I can always steal someone elses ...

I planned to take a drive yesterday after work to the well known After Beach Bar which sits on the hill overlooking Kata Noi beach. Actually there are several bars there. I wanted a nice sunset photo and a chance to blog this bar which has been a Phuket fixture since.. well, since before I came here in 1999. But the weather did not play ball, and this evening was the same, a light rain and lots of cloud this afternoon. Maybe tomorrow the sun can shine all day and give me a sunset view! The After Beach Bar is between Kata and the well known viewpoint (below) that looks over Kata Noi, Kata and Karon Beaches.
