The birthday boy awoke with no idea what was in store for him but it wasn't long before he found out. A pick up had been arranged for 10:00 and the driver had the word "crew" emblazoned on the back of his shirt.
Mark was not the least bit disappointed to work out we were going to sea. Half an hour later we arrived to a balloon and bunting festooned private boat, which Lou had hired for the entire day.
Wifey, brave as ever took a handful of sea sickness tablets and declared her sea legs were now in working order. Bar a couple of dodgy moments, she survived the trip and got stuck in with the rest of us.
Boat hire from 11:00 to 17:00 including full crew, all equipment and lunch (bring your own drinks) was a very reasonable THB 15 000.
