The Sun also sets in Koh Samui – Watching Sunset and Clouds

While we were fascinated with the sunset at Langkawai, Malaysia, we were also stunned by the sunset and the low hanging  clouds at Koh Samui, Thailand. The island offers magical skies, breathtaking sunsets and the perfect backdrop that presents an unforgettable experience.

There is no better way than starting a day sitting quietly by the beach while having your morning cup of coffee or tea.

Our crave for beaches is just insatiable. When coming to decide where to go for our vacation, we have always yielded to the 3S formula (Sun+Sand+Sea =Happiness). One of our pleasures is watching the sun set every evening from various beaches. It is the interplay of colors, tones, different configuration of clouds and the sun that never failed to amaze us. On this beach, we were at peace to see birds hopping among the rounded rocks and people waded out to the water as far as you can stretch your eyes.

Life has always been mysterious, full of unexpected twists and turns. The tonality of the beach today seems to be predominantly in blue. So blue, blue, my world is blue.  Like the clouds, they are always changing in pattern, color and tonality. However, for each cloud, there is always a silver lining.

Like Joni Mitchell, we looked at clouds from both sides now, from up and down and still somehow, it’s cloud illusion we recalled. We really don’t know clouds at all. . . . .

Watching clouds is one of our pleasures. We take pictures of it, knowing they will never capture a fraction of what we are feeling, or seeing, and that friends will just eventually flip through the photos in a stack (“Sunset… sunset… sunset…”). But to be in this place, being part of the nature, with  glistening water and quiet beach in front of us, and  brilliant sunsets , it is pure heaven.

The storm clouds signifies that we will have rain tonight. It rained heavily and, in the midst of storm and thunder, the electricity in our hotel room was suddenly gone. So for a couple of hours, we were left in complete darkness.

The heavy rain has finally gone. We have started a new day, the wheels of time just roll on. There will be another day, another sunset in Koh Samui. . . . . . . . . . . . . . the world just keep on turning . . . .
