Thailand 10/12/13

Up early to bird Laem Pak Bia where there wasn't a great deal of Waders on offer. Pak Thale was then the option before returning to Laem Pak Bia where finally the mass had arrived. On high tide, we took Mr Daeng's boat out to the sandspit (though a nice lunch was prepared for us by the lady of the shack). Just after lunchtime, we had to make a rapid move to Baan Maka on the outskirts of Kaeng Krachan as we had booked the hides.
