Nov 8 - Ko Muk

Pos: N07deg21.618/ E099deg17.442 We finally departed Ko Lanta, motorsailing the 15 miles to Ko Muk along with Imagine and Keris. Rumrunner II left for Ko Phi Phi Don and points NW; we won't see them again until January. (Good luck to them in the King's Cup Regatta!) Arriving just after noon, we anchored in front of a beautiful beach at the SW corner of the island and dinghied in to go exploring. The shallow water was warm and crystal clear, the sand smooth and fine, and there were a few resorts on the beach to get cold beer and smoothies. It had been so long since we all had been able to get in the water and enjoy a peaceful setting. In the late afternoon, we had a cheeseburger at Hat Farang (aka Hat Sai Yao, or Charlie's Beach); not that gourmet, but a nice change from our typical Thai fare. Our evening entertainment was watching the movie "Paint Your Wagon" aboard Keris. An enjoyable time was had by all!
Pic: Past Charlie's Resort are other restaurants/bars. The many rubber trees make great shade. These latex slabs, processed from the rubber tree, are in different stages of drying.
