Kayaking the Turquoise Waters of the Andaman Sea
Despite Jackson being tired and ready for a nap after our breakfast of fried eggs, French toast, wiener croissants, fruit and pad thai and swims in one of the pools as well as the Zen-like ocean, we rented a kayak and took an hour-long paddle on Tuesday morning.
The guys who carried our kayak to the water recommended, "man in back, man stronger," to which Rachel promptly replied, "Nope, I'm a better kayaker," and away we went. We set out right from in front of our resort on Hat Rei Leh West beach. We went around Happy Island and Bird Nest Island, both considered some of the best snorkeling spots on the Railay peninsula.
By noon, it was way too hot to be in the sun, so Rachel went for a walk while I chilled in the room and in our "cold" tub with the little guy. Then I went for a massage while Rachel took over the chilling duties.
