Clouds Over Koh Samui, Thailand

Our days in Koh Samui, Thailand have been very relaxing.

Lazing by the beach, watching the sea and the clouds were part of our enjoyment.DSC_0630

One evening, we walked by the beach and was stunned by the colorful storm clouds that were hanging low over the horizon.DSC_0629

The clouds looked dramatic. Looking at how the clouds and sky change their color as the sun was setting was really memorable.

When the sun has almost set, the sky exhibited an almost red color.DSC_0640

We didn’t know these were the signs of a heavy storm that night. When we were back at our hotel and were ready to sleep, thunders began to roar. With the heavy rain, there was continuous lightning too.

In the midst of all the thunders, suddenly there was an electricity  blackout. The whole area, including our bungalow was pitch black – we couldn’t see a thing. There was some panic, as we tried to reach for an electric torch.

We knew there was nothing we could do except to lock our door and went back to sleep.

When morning came, it was another clear day . . . . . . . . . . . . .

    I found Michael Lai’s blog only several days ago. It’s a pity as I enjoy his posts very much.
    We have a lot in common: “English is not my native language”, “writing is not my best of skills”, we enjoy travel and appreciate beauty.
    Thank you for your blog, Michael!
