Surprise! We're moving to Thailand!

sunny 90 °F

OK, not really, but we never want to leave ... this is paradise! Today started with coffee on our patio, overlooking the ocean, and then we headed down to breakfast. We had lots more fruit, another egg white omelet for me, and coconut waffles for Kevin.

The rest of the morning and afternoon pretty much consisted of this: main pool --> personal pool --> gym --> main pool --> personal pool. It was rough!

In the late afternoon, we headed into town (Kamala) to get massages, a Thai specialty. We got a 60-minute massage for $9 each! It was amazing. Then we headed to this fun roadside bar for a drink, and they gave us Connect Four to play (someone won 5 out of 5 games, and their name does not start with K!).

We next headed to dinner, where they had live singers - lots of classic American music. The food was great - we started with salad (me) and tomato soup (Kev), and then Kev got sweet and sour shrimp. My meal deserves a whole new sentence because it was just. that. good! It was curry rice with mixed seafood and raisins all stuffed in a pineapple! Not flavors that I might have put together myself, but it was great.

Finally, we got snacks from 7-11 ... this is just Kevin's portion of the haul, and mine plus his together was $5!

Last stop of the evening was to pick up our laundry that we dropped off yesterday. Everything came back great and they were super friendly. We can't believe they tied little orange strings on every single piece - even the individual socks! Kevin said "you'll never post this picture," so I have to do it now - this was us coming back in an open air taxi with our laundry.

Tomorrow will be a bit of a change of pace, but we're super excited, so stay tuned!
