There was rain all the way from Phuket Town over the mountains and down to the beach, and it didn't let up just because we'd arrived. It was a pleasure to dive into the warm waters of the Indian Ocean and escape the cold drops of rain.
One of my traveling companions/classmates took advantage of waiting for another one driving back to retrieve a forgotten bag and took another stab at the heavy surf.
There'd have been plenty to do there if the weather had been more cooperative. The clouds rolled away in time for a sunset memorable only because I took it home in my camera, but maybe the guy under the parasail has a different story to tell.
