the rain and mangroves day

Wednesday 16 September 2015

We were joined at breakfast by a couple of little visitors at the table next to ours.

After breakfast we caught a bus to Krabi town which is about a 30 minute drive away. I was a little concerned when the bus driver did this

We hopped off the bus in Krabi near a Black Canyon so went in and had a coffee before setting out to explore Krabi town a little. Today is overcast and rainy

This would be the last place I would expect to see Hogwarts

I love, love, love these traffic lights

After walking around for a few blocks we found ourselves by the river. I don’t think this boat is going anywhere.

We negotiated with a guy for a two hour boat ride on the river, through the mangroves and then to a restaurant on the water.

First we were on the open water and it was raining at times during our boat ride.

The vegetation along the water was not on the bank of the river but actually growing in the water.

Once back on the open water we headed to a fishing community on the river, each of them also having a restaurant on the water.
