Loch Palm

It was great having the car to get around in because the Island of Phuket is quite large and there is plenty to see and do. We did a complete tour of the Island, taking in Phuket Town - which seemed a bit drab, but maybe it was because we saw it on a sunday. The liveliest resort on the island is most definitely Patong and I am glad that we were not staying there, although it had atmosphere and some good restaurants which were a fraction of the price on our resort. We had an elephant ride after constant pestering from yvonne, but she was only aboard one minute and she wanted to get off - No chance.

I managed to get another game of golf at the ‘Loch Palm’ golf club. Once again a magnificent course set high in the hills with fantastic views. This time I had a buggy, which helped in getting me round but did nothing for the golf - I guess I will have to accept that my golfing career has finally come to an end. These shoulders of mine do not allow me to even half swing.
