Day 8- Khao Sok- Monkeys, Snakes and Thunderstorms


The jungle sounds never stop. We slept well and had breakfast at the restaurant overlooking the limestone cliff and river.

The guide drove us to another area where we started a private guided canoe tour down the river. We quickly spotted a troupe of long tailed Macaque monkeys. They were as curious about us as we were of them. They hung in the branches over our heads, so close that if I reached up I could grab a tail...which wouldn't be a good idea since then I'd probably be bit and have to go for rabies and tetanus treatment.

We sat for a long time watching them swim, fight, play and groom. 

It was so relaxing floating down the river. We saw a black and yellow snake, a huge spider, birds, fish and a monitor lizard. Gorgeous.

At lunch we watched locals and a few guests swimming in the river below the restaurant. It's 33 degrees C so we spent the rest of the day relaxing and enjoying the surroundings.

Late afternoon, a thunderstorm arose. It was so relaxing to sit under the roof in front of our treehouse and read our books as the rain came down.
