We are home, well-rested and tired. It was a wonderful two weeks packed with family and food, sightseeing and swimming, a complete break from our normal pace. With my sister at the wheel, we covered the length and breadth of the island, it seemed, from the zoo to water parks, cafes and shops, and incredible botanic gardens. My niece and nephews showered adoration on my girls, which left me with little to do but stretch out in their incredible home and enjoy the hospitality. I read. I knitted. I sweltered in the heat then retreated to airconditioning. I ate and ate and ate. And on the last day, finally, the monsoonal storm I'd been promised.
Tomorrow, pictures from our break within a break to Phuket.
