We eat breakfast and sometimes lunch at the house. But dinner is always out. We generally rotate between 3 restaurants that are nearby. Two we can easily walk to and they are on the beach with a lovely view. The other is a bit farther so we drive. It's called Koh Kaew and the food is fantastic, cheap and the ladies who run it are very friendly and sweet.
A couple of nights ago we went exploring for a different restaurant for dinner on the western side of the island so we'd see a sunset. We found a gem! It's on the beach on the Virgin Coast and has amazing food. It's in an area that has a few resorts but is not touristy - no malls, no fast food places, etc. We intend to go back many times while here. Danny and I had a vegetarian dinner for two which included 7 dishes, all gorgeous! This is the sunset we saw while having dinner:
We shop at the closest Tesco superstore which is in Lamai and have purchased everything we found lacking in our house...mainly for the kitchen, some organisers, more hangers, and a drying rack for hand washables.
Today, we went out for a drive to investigate some areas that are less populated. Lovely beaches! Here is a place we stopped at to quench our thirst and also a Wat (Buddhist temple) where we stopped along the way. We visited one of the buildings which had a mummified monk and were given a blessing by a monk or lay person seated there.
