I did hire a moped to day and have been riding around on the island. It is very beautiful but a pity you never see the see in a see though. You are always surrounded by palm trees and rubber trees. It goes up and down. while riding you cool because of the little breeze you make in this heat. Arround 36 C and humidity 80. I have been to two very nce places This island is chill. But better do not go alone. In the afternoon around 16.00 a guy from the dive company came to tell me that the 10 dive trip was canceled. Bad vibes it gives me. So now I do two dives tomorrow and start at 06.00 .. So an other early night.

Awake at 05.00 and in time to get the boat for diving. We are heading for Surin island about four hours away. But there are a lot of waves because the wind has been picking up. Because of that we go slower than anticipated and the first dive we make starts at 12.00 . I love diving and I feel comfortable  The second I jump in to the deep blue. The dive goes according to plan and we see enough fish and other animals. After 50 minutes we surface an feel content. Nicely we are helped aboard and lunch is served. Of course I took my camera with me but a battery problem stopped me from filming (shit ) Around 14.30 we make our second dive and again a very smooth dive with some nice Murray eal and cuttlefish ( some kind of squid) . The dives were fine now we bring some of the snorkelers to the island so they stay the night at the island. At 17.00 we go back to Phayam and the boat ride takes six hours  we arrive at 23.00 a little late. So tired and sleepy looking for my bed.
