Cycling alone again today, the beaches just kept on getting more beautiful, and more peaceful. Ban Krut never ended with its white sands lined with palm trees. I ended at another cute little beach with the standard kaarst structures on the horizon and the calm, tranquil sea.

Arne decided to catch a lift to a bigger town to get his bike seen to, so, it was me keeping myself company again. I like being by myself, and cycling through this amazing landscape. It is perfect being able to stop and do whatever I like, when I like. I stayed off the main road except for a short 28km stretch in the morning, and then drank up the serenity of the back roads following the shoreline.

This coast is stunning. Calm roads, calm waters. Kaarst formations jutting out of the plains and out of the sea. Palm trees lining the roads next to the sandy beaches. And a cave that is a massive sinkhole in the kaarst landscape – the sun shining in like a beam from the heavens lighting up the golden temple. Amazing.

We were woken up by the rooster orchestra, and by the fishermen preparing their boats for the day. It was a beautiful light, and a quiet road before everyone woke from their slumber.

The walk to the Phraya Nathan cave was steep, first to get to a beautiful palm-lined broad, wide, sandy beach, then then to get to the deep sinkhole in the kaarst mountain. It was just beautiful.

Arne was having some problems with his tyres, and then his brakes, so we are having a rest day tomorrow. I’m looking forward to lazing around in this beautiful place. No blog tomorrow.. ☺
