Elephants and Fruit Plates: Adventures in Phuket

Greetings from Phuket, Thailand!! We arrived safely on Sunday to this view from our room:

I may never leave.

Lunch was served and we all gathered around the table to enjoy some beautiful Thai food.

I'm not going to lie: I'm pretty sick of Thai food at this point. Everything is starting to taste the same and there's only fruit for dessert. You know how I feel about fruit. :) Somehow I will power through. Maybe I won't gain so much weight in the process.

We enjoyed the rest of the day at the pool.

After dinner, we went to Patong Beach.

This is one the craziest places I've ever been. Beyond sensory overload. I cannot say much else…what happens in Patong Beach, stays in Patong Beach.

I was excited about breakfast yesterday morning.

An omelet. Nothing Thai about it. 

Back to the pool we went. Lunch was…..

Yep. 

Then, a special friend arrived. Her name was Pinky and I fell in love.

One of the most awesome experiences for sure. 

Last night was Jason and Tracy's birthdays. We enjoyed a special dinner in their honor.

And the famous fruit plate for dessert:

I do have to say…the food is so beautiful to look at! 

All my dreams came true when the birthday cake arrived.

Life was complete. Almost. A cheeseburger would be really nice.

Alicia and I. We are also really enjoyed the extreme heat and humidity here. :)

When you travel, do you eat the local cuisine the entire time or do you mix it up?

Wow, what an incredible experience! Love the baby elephant. Sadly Tony isn't feeling well - I had picked out a couple farm to table restaurants we could possibly go to, but he doesn't have an appetite. I brought in Chinese food for lunch today!
