|The lovely Outrigger|
|Welcome coconut/pineapple drink. Yummy!|
They even let us check in early...and our bungalow was very nice.
|Our home for 3 days|
We spent our three days here finally getting some sleep and R&R. We treated ourselves to a nice dinner and the hotel really took care of us. We had contacted them about Paul's allergies ahead of time so the food & beverage manager had informed the staff. It was easy to order and there were no tomatoes anywhere!
Besides hanging by the pool and beach, we did manage to take a hike to a couple different places.

|Moving to another spot by the pool - convenient swim up bar in the pool...|
|Ahhhh....a hammock. This one couldn't fit us both.|
|We took a hike around the grounds and found the tsunami victims memorial|

|At dusk on our last night|
We checked out on Friday, April 19 and headed to Chiang Mai. It only took us 10 hours to get there...first a long tail boat from the Outrigger to Tonsai Bay. We had some time to kill around Tonsai Bay before getting on the ferry to Phuket so we did some shopping. Paul would refer to it as negotiating.
|Long tail to Tonsai Pier|
|The water was really clear that day|

|Getting ready to leave Ko Phi Phi|
After a 2 hour ferry ride to Phuket...
|Bye bye Phi Phi|
|Along the way, we saw more limestone cliffs|
...there was another hour taxi ride from the pier to the airport. Then we waited another 2 hours before flying 2 hours to Chiang Mai. After being so lazy at the Outrigger, all the travel and effort made for a long day.
