we headed home today. and my one and only complaint is that we didn’t book longer. 5 days just wasn’t enough. i’ve been asked just where dolphin bay is and have done my very best to point it out on a map. i had to draw it in myself since these particular map makers didn’t see fit to include it.
it is a fairly secluded beach. there are a few small resorts along the way, but we never saw more than 10 or so people along the beach when we were out. we stayed at the juniper tree dolphin bay. i was somewhat intimidated heading out on this trip. creating the kind of trip that could make a13 & s10 forget – at least for a week – that they didn’t get to go to america was a hefty responsibility. but i’m pretty sure i succeeded. i don’t think we could have fit one more thing into our schedule – or maybe i mean i couldn’t have survived one more thing.
billy, rachel and libby – the folks who keep juniper tree running – were amazing hosts. attentive, but unobtrusive. willing to help with whatever they could. i think for our first beach experience in thailand we couldn’t have asked for more.
here are a few shots at the juniper tree and a few of our last night on the beach.
and this very last picture here… this is monkey island. and a13 and i are having a debate about it. when you look at this island, what do you see?
i’m not telling you what we see, because i don’t want to put any ideas in your head.
