Beautiful Thai Beach (Wednesday Photo)

Koh Kai, Tarutao National Park

Beautiful Thai Beach

Yes, it is that beautiful

In looking over nearly a year’s worth of Wednesday photos, I was appalled to see that I didn’t have a single one that celebrated Thailand’s beautiful, white sand beaches. The beauty of the seacoast is something that startled me on my very first trip to Thailand. Now every year I look forward to our time on the coast and in the water.

Kasma took this picture at Koh Kai in Koh Tarutao, Tarutao National Park. It shows a longtail boat, the preferred mode of transportation for most people on the ocean waters of the south of Thailand.

Mobile Street Vendor (Wednesday Photo)

Ultra Mobile Street vendor

Mobile street vendor

This picture was taken on the streets of Nakhon Si Thammarat and gives a good sense of how some street vendors move their operation from home to a selling location. I saw this go past on the street, ran almost a whole block and snapped it just as she was about to pull away from a red light.

This vendor has it fairly easy and gets to use a motor cycle to move her operation; others are not so lucky and pull them along by hand.
