22 June 2012: Flying into Krabi airport, in the southeast of Thailand.
Transfer to the pier.
Transfer to Railay Beach, with Jonathan & Meghan.
Railay Beach (eastern side).
Tide's out, so we walk in.
We are welcomed by cats ...
... and we have a nice bungalow room.
Father & son enjoy dinner.
There are some fancy properties nearby.
And a reminder of home (Augusta, GA).
Next day, beach-front scenery (with tide in).
Ready for a stroll, we climb up a rock face.
Great view: Western (left) and eastern (right) coasts.
On we go, now climbing down ...
Jennifer crests over one of three vertical drops. But we find ...
... a lagoon.
Once there, Jennifer enjoys a swim.
We find a cave ...
... well, well, well.
Companion climbers, making their way back up.
Heading to the western side.
We enjoy the views ...
... the critters, ...
... ourselves, ...
... the sunset, ...
... and night fall.
We meet Jonathan & Meghan ...
... and decide to go for dinner here.
... topped off by a snack later on.
Next day, we go to see the monkeys.
We pass mangrove seedlings.
But first we buy some bananas.
Oops. Wrong monkeys.
Here we go: The troop is waiting.
Jennifer's drink tastes good.
While Jonathan entertained himself building a sand castle, ...
... I enjoy reading in the hammock.
On the way back home.
