and towards Pattaya, a nice menu with as usual lots of pictures,
and as a surprise the prawn salad looked better in real life than it did in the picture, 100 baht, I decided not to have the sauce, part of the diet! Mike had a full English breakfast, whilst Riza the American and Diana rice prawns and asparagus,
Riza and Diana said Mike looked so sweet as he held the sauce basket!
we decided to spend the afternoon on the beach, the sea was rough to say the least with a strong breeze blowing all afternoon,
Diana decided to have a paddle, but got soaked by the next wave, I said she should have brought her swimming costume!
but all dry and warm now with a fresh coconut to drink,
Mike had a foot massage on the beach, then decided to change chairs so he would be near the table, forgetting about the bamboo chair at Tom's, he sat in this one, after an ominous 'crack!' as his butt hit the sand and the people on the next table burst out in laughter we all knew he had done it again! rotten wood you see, the beach although it was Sunday seemed pretty quite, although in truth we were aways along it, but the downside is whist the beach was low on tourists it more than made up for it with people selling goods and food,
some times I go past the Eden, to look at this, I swear every time I go past this eclectic pole is leaning a few degrees further over the road, in fact looking at the photo it does not look so bad, but when drive the other way I always feel sure I am going to hit my head on it if I get to close or it is going to fall on me as I go past!
after Mike and Riza left it was feet up to watch a couple of DVD's, first staring one of my favorite UK born actors Charles Laughton in 'The Hunchback Of Notre Dame' as many critics have said it did not do so well in the Oscars as 1939 was by all accounts a bumper year for movie releases, it was in competition with such titles as Gone With The Wind, The Wizard Of Oz, Goodbye, Mr. Chips and Of Mice And Men, for a fuller list look here,
and then for some thing completely different, Brazil, a futuristic 1984ish movie film much of it shot in Croydon, just down the road from me in the UK, with stars such as Ian Richardson playing his FU character from House Of Cards but at turbo speed, the more I watched the more people in the film I recognized, but could not remember their names, for Diana and myself a very enjoyable if slightly strange film, then off to bed!
