Andaman KayakingJanuary 2015
Here are scenes from an amazing day-long kayak trip we took with John Gray's Sea Canoes Company in Phang-Nga Bay (part of the Andaman Sea east of the big Thai island of Phuket). The trip featured visits to hidden lagoons inside limestone islands reachable only through sea caves at low tide. Along the way, we saw lots of wildlife (including a close encounter with a kayak-loving macaque), watched the light change on beautiful rocky islands as the sun set, and made floating leaf-and-flower offerings like those used in Thailand's annual water festival. After dark, we launched the offerings on the sea to the flicker of candlelight.
