HELLO BIG BUDDHA
05 November 2014 | 08 10'N:098 21'E, YACHT HAVEN MARINA
A delayed blog posting. We arrived in Ao Chalong Harbor, Phuket on Sunday night and cleared in on Monday with customs, immigration, quarantine, etc., etc., etc.
On arrival, we were greeted by "BIG BUDDHA", a huge statue on top of the mountain overlooking the harbor. Quite a sight to behold. On Tuesday, we sailed the last 30 NM to the Yacht Haven Marina, which will be the resting place for Moonbeam for the next few months. So far, we have not had a chance to do any sightseeing, as boat chores have taken a priority, but the weekend is coming soon for relaxing and local touring.
So far, the Thai experience has been great. The people are lovely, and the sail up through the islands was quite spectacular. We will be looking forward to cruising through all the islands next year.
