We've had a few of those “that's why we came here" days and we want to share them with you.
One of those days happened on Koh Phi Phi Island, Thailand.
We had arrived a few days prior (we were set back a couple days by Stephen getting sick. Who orders nachos in Thailand?), and were eager to get out a see the island. So to maximize our day we hired a longtail boat for 6 hours to see as much of the islands around us as possible. With our iced thai teas in hand, we set off on the high seas! It felt so lavish of us to take a boat out by ourselves, we were free to stay and go as we pleased at whatever locations we choose. The American dollar goes so far here!
Our first stop was an inlet to the most beautiful lagoon I have ever seen (Pileh Lagoon). Before us sheets of limestone rock that vertically towered over us hundreds of feet high. As we passed through them the canal led us to utter magic. As the walls opened up our eyes took in images our minds truly couldn't process!
Before us was a quite lagoon, though busy with tourists. It was large enough and held such great awe that we all fell silent in its grip.
The walls were our protector, and the water our comforter. We were where the gods must take their baths. (Sounds dramatic, oh well :)
