8. Koh Tarutao : December 14-16, 2014 – At around 40 nautical miles, the trip from Koh Kradan down to Koh Tarutao was our longest day sailing. We started getting knocked around, part way through the journey, when the wind picked up and began to bounce us around. Eric, the old salt, held down the fort while the rest of us spent a good part of the day trying to sleep off the queaziness, despite having taken sea sickness pills. When we finally pulled in and dropped anchor at Tarutao National Park, way down in the deep south of Thailand, we were pretty relieved.
Sorry for the silence.
We recently finished our one month catamaran charter in the Andaman Sea, and are currently in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. We’ll put together more blog posts in the near future to fill you in on our adventures up to this point.
While on the boat, we rarely had access to the Internet, and had limited access to electricity to charge our numerous devices. The result was that everybody spent nearly the whole month without using our electronics. I believe it set some sort of record for this family.
Everyone coped by doing a lot of swimming, snorkeling, hunting for hermit crabs, reading (sometimes the same book over and over again, because books were in short supply as well), a little bit of game playing (a game called SET seemed to be the favorite), and a fair amount of squabbling (of course).
