We spent the day around the hotel again today, after taking full advantage of the scrumptious breakfast buffet, just stopping short of looking greedy, we spent time lounging by the beach, taking it in turns to have our complementary massages which were heavenly, and updating more friends and family before finally updating our facebook statuses to “engaged” letting our wider worlds know the news, the response was amazing, so many people sending their congratulations and sharing in our happiness as they woke up and heard the news in the UK it was really lovely. During this time Martin had disappeared briefly and returned with cornettos from the local 7-11 shop. Our ice creams eaten we headed out on the hotels complementary kayaks to the beautiful islands just off the coast which we had admired from the beach since our arrival at the hotel. We got there, feeling a bit nauseous after our stomach tried to digest our cornettos as we bobbed along in the kayak. We sat for an hour or two on the beach and in the shallows chatting and admiring the view. During which Martin revealed that when he had gone off to get our ice cream he had also spoken to reception and booked us in for another night…so we have another full day of paradise again tomorrow: oh the joys! Eventually we got back in our kayak and left the deserted little island to return to our beach paradise and our second sunset meal, this time four courses of Thai culinary delights…followed by watching mamma mia on our home cinema TV…what more could a girl want?
