Nong Yai Wooden Bridge at the Nong Yai Park Chumpon.

Nong Yai Wooden Bridge at the Nong Yai Park Chumpon.
The park came about following the devastation caused by Typhoon Gay back in November 1989. 529 people were killed, 160,000 became homeless, with 7,130 km2 of farm land destroyed. Under Royal Initiative a system of flood control measures were implemented.

The main flood management system is a diversion canal running from the Tha Taphap river in the west of the park to the Phanang Tak river in the east, which is near the sea. In times of heavy rain, water can be diverted through the canal preventing/reducing any flooding in the area around Chumphon town.

It is a fantastic Park and a great place to go and walk and you can also see Javan rusa deer

Rawai Sunday Afternoon 2021

Every now and again I get the chance to experience some real calm in my life. Like in this slideshow of a warm sunny afternoon in Rawai Beach , a working beach, sadly quiet with all the boats tied up with no visitors to the out lying Islands.
Local people and some of us that live here seek calm and freedom in the sea air and the views. Boats sail, pick up trucks drive across the sand banks to load their owners boats up with kit for Sunday afternoon fishing trips.
Families with their children comb the sands for crabs and other small shell edibles.

I can almost hear the sound of the sea, and feel the warmth of the sun, and the smell of the salty water....
