Very unsettled yesterday and today (so far). Occasional, black-cloud squall 'walls' that hit like a hammer... with torrential rain (usually) lasting only a couple of minutes before the sun appears again.
As you are in Khao Lak now,have you noticed lower numbers,empty shops,fewer tourists at Bang Niang markets and emptyish resorts...??...I'm heading over in September and wonders how busy it will be then...
With the weak Aussie dollar affecting Aussie travel plans too....25baht/dollar is terrible....!!...
I haven't been to Bang Niang, but It seems like there are fewer numbers of people around (Bang La On) compared to this time last year.
Not much sun today, lots of cloud, raining patches, the wind is the best it's been all. day . The sea is rough , but there is one board rider at the lighthouse,.. Temperature very mild .
Looks like a huge oil, petrol, diesel drum is floating off Nang thong beach looks the size of a container but rounded ,
The mystery object is on the move again and is now closer to shore out the front of Centara Seaview. Could be a bit interesting if it makes landfall.
Its probably just Mr Whippy, been blown of course a bit..
