Bottle Beach is on the non-Full Moon Party side of Koh Phangan and is approached only by boat. There is no good coffee in any of the four restaurants. Our restaurant only had 2 CDs on constant rotation. The electricity went out every day just as the sun went down…

We had a week of swimming and friends and food and sleep. There was a lookout to be climbed, and for the first time ever, Sparky did not miss out on rock scrambling. The water was turquoise. The air was quiet. And it was beautiful.
And two large Thai lanterns flew over the gulf of Thailand with ‘Happy Birthday Snowy’ written on them. And a very happy five year old boy smiled with shining eyes, and waved until they had dissappeared from sight .
