For the Chinese National Holiday (October 1) Clifford gives us a week off.  So, Jen and I headed south to the amazing country of Thailand…for a second time.

We got caught in high tide on the beach and had to cross a minor Red Sea.  Keith tried wading up to his knees and then sank down to his waist.  We searched for another way across through the bush then found another opening.  I did great in my shorts until I sank too and a wave came.  Jen got across unscathed, but then got soaked when a wave hit her on the beach.  It was quite a laughter filled night.
