The last three days have been the same- brilliant sunny mornings then at the time the sea turns 
from high to low tide comes a major gush of wind accompanied by a short but heavy rainstorm, 
then everything returns to normal just like nothing ever happened!

30th October 2011 11.12am

29th October 2011 11.58am
After a beautiful start to the morning I wasn't expecting this! 
Strong wind pushed the rainstorm through in about 20 minutes and 
then we were back to normal enjoying the sun on the beach!

 27th October 2011 14.57pm
The weather was sunny with some cloud today. 
Low water was late afternoon and that is a perfect time for 
exploring the rock pools to catch a glimpse of local marine life.

The influence of the NE wind, changes the wave pattern so that the beach will move from East to West. Today, at Bon Island, saw the first signs of the shift which will take a month or so to move as much as 2 meters in depth of sand to the other end of the beach.

Looking towards Rawai from Kao Khad, a great place to watch the sunset!

Strong NE wind in the morning, but almost no breeze by the late afternoon.

I just love the cloud formations we're getting these last few days!
Blue sky and cool NE breeze - ah perfect!

 22nd October 2011 09.52am
Fishing for squid at Bon Island was a little harder than yesterday 
as today the wind was stronger causing small waves.  

22nd October 2011 18.22pm
Sunset at Nai Harn Beach was still nice despite the cloud!

21st October 2011 09.58am
21st October 2011  16.27pm  Time to go!
21st October 2011  17.48pm
21st October 2011  17.57pm  Driving was almost impossible!
Mixed weather today, started off sunny, but the sky looked heavy most of the day and by late afternoon the wind had moved from NE to SW and storm clouds were covering most of Phuket (except Rawai which was still sunny!) As the sunset, an electic storm sent large flashes of lightening down over Rawai accompanied by a major rain storm. Locals and tourists alike raced for shelter from the downpour but around 30 minutes later the rain had stopped and everything returned to normal as if nothing had happened at all!

20th October 09.44am
Beautiful sky, beautiful Phuket!

18th October 2011 11.16am Hot and Sunny!
The NE wind, a bit stronger than yesterday, was nice and refreshing. Perfect for a day on the beach!
(But in Bangkok they are fighting the threat of floods, further north they have been under water for almost 2 months in some places.)

17th October 2011
The wind has shifted to NE and signals the start of a new season!

Low tide leaves fishing boats grounded until the water returns.

Even the rainy season can be fun on the beach!

The waves are still quite strong, sunny during the day in Rawai,
but in town and Kathu area still some rain.
