Commandeered at Ko Phi Phi

After breakfast and another round of snorkeling, we headed on towards Ko Phi Phi. Five to six foot swells caused lots of spray and gave an exciting ride to girls on the bow trampoline.

It was our longest sail of the trip so far and certainly the bumpiest. I was pretty proud of my sea legs. That is, until I tried to read the cruising guide to get info about our next anchorage and realized I wasn’t as tough as I thought.

We decided to stop at Ko Mai Phai. A quick dip to cool off helped my sea sickness.

Afterwards, we did some more snorkeling and found several soft coral with little “Nemo” fish guarding them. In the evening, we sailed to a bay just south of the tip of Ko Phi Phi and motored to the beach at low tide.

Shortly after making it ashore, our Dingy was commandeered by a small “mob” of local children.

The kids had a great time bouncing on the inflated pontoons of the dingy. We made the assumption that they had been around boats longer than us and that our return vehicle to the catamaran would be OK. So, we walked up the beach to the Ziabola resort for an excellent dinner of prawns, chicken curry, Thai sea bass and Leo beer – our first meal off the boat about 6 days.
