Thailand! Chalong Bay Extended Beach

Thailand! Chalong Bay Extended Beach

Just south of Chalong, there is a long stretch of Chalong bay called, Friendship beach, also known as Mittrapap beach. The beach is not a great place for swimming as it becomes muddy at low tide. However, the view of the bay is delightful for walking and getting away from the hustle and bustle of Life.

You get some lovely views across Chalong Bay to some of the offshore islands such as Koh Lone, Koh Bon and Koh Racha Yai, and there are hundreds of boats in the bay – everything from dive boats to catamarans to speedboats and a couple of huge sunset cruise boats.

Certainly somewhere I love going to relax and practice photography.

Peaceful Moments from Karon Beach – Phuket

So as part of my ongoing self managing therapy, I photograph, a lot, and I have a lot of images from that. Some i make into what I hope are useful , “this is a nice place to visit and this is what you will see” slideshows on YouTube.

Then there are these, peaceful moments which I post for people who like me have worked out that we all need 5 minutes of the day just to stop and think of nothing else in this world, but to stop! and give our minds just a break at least once a day from all the things that push us too hard, Life! I weave them into these peaceful moments using images and appropriate music to help the mind switch off from the rest of the World.

I hope you find them as helpful as I do…. and the added bonus you see some beautiful places of where I have been.

This is Phuravarna.. The Abandoned Retreat

Some of you may know I have a love of exploring old abandoned and unfinished buildings.

This video is dedicated to my new explorer friend Celeste Hanson, who without her knowledge of this place I would never have found.

I can see that it would have made a beautiful calm, peaceful and relaxing retreat in the Island of Phuket. Sadly it seems that it either ran out of money or possible investors. either way it stands as an example of what could have been. You will see what I mean when you watch it!

It was an idea to build the resort with villas…the owner was playing dirty with investors so they pulled off investments…that was around ten years ago…I believe that this property still has some serious legal issues

Rawai Boats

One of my peaceful moments short videos that I have finally had time to get to making.

Interestingly this was photographed this last Sunday after an unexpected visit to Rawai Beach . I spent quite a bit of time there on Sunday afternoon, and took , as I do, images to remind myself to remember a calm and enjoyable moment of life. enhanced even more by the tide going out leaving the local fishing boats stranded in the sand.

Watching people picking their way through the rocks to find small crabs and shellfish. So for anyone who might feel like a breath of fresh air, have a watch, and lose yourself somewhere beautiful in your mind!
