ATA: Day 11 Beach to Home

18 November 2017

I'm going home today.   Yesterday I was sad about having to leave but today I'm ready to see my guys and sleep in my own bed.

First, iced coffee!  Sue and I walked down to our favorite place and when we told our server, Pancake, that we were going home she made us an extra big coffee to go.  


I learned so much about seeing and capturing the light on this trip.  Our home in the jungle.



A view to the beach.  




There are these little crabs on the beach that get to work first thing in the morning digging their holes as the tide goes out.  They put the sand in their mouths and create these little sand balls.  


One more longboat picture before I leave.


We had one last lunch at our favorite restaurant before leaving.  It's funny that they are known for the tuna salad so alot of our meals included tuna melts or a greek salad with tuna salad.  Mine always included an iced coffee.   Perfect coffee, creamy milk, just the right amount of sugar, and a beautiful flower.  


And one last picture of the gang before we all go in our separate ways.   Our group had such a great dynamic and we got along so well.  We had so much fun and so many laughs together.  (Photo courtesy of Brian Tausend)



We took the 1:30 longboat and then a 2 hour van ride to Phuket.  My flight left at 6:55 pm on Thursday and arrived in LAX at 8:55 pm on Thursday.  I really enjoyed flying on Cathay Pacific and made good use of my time by journaling and documenting this amazing adventure, with a glass of champagne.
