Beach’n

Beach’n

Took a ride out to Jomtien Beach just to sit by the Gulf of Thailand and enjoy a cold beer on a hot day. I’m technically retired so I’m allowed these indulgences. Living in Thailand is a bit surreal at times. I’m in a major tourist area so I don’t get the real, Thai experience as this place caters to tourist. My neighborhood is mostly Thai with a few expat enclaves but for the most part it is Thai oriented….

Walking Along The Beach

Walking Along The Beach

I haven’t seen the Sun in a few days and I think I may have mentioned I miss Thailand or implied I miss Thailand.

It’s been under construction the entire time. Since its…

Lighthouse At Sunset

Lighthouse At Sunset

This is one of the reasons I went to Bali Hai, the lighthouse at the end of the road. Well, not really end, more like before you take a sharp left hand turn and end up in Pratumnak but most people never make it that far down. You gotta weave through the docks with boats being moved about and roving packs of soi dogs. Rather intimidating unless you been down that way before. There are double bonus points if you…
