Beauty Under a Beast

Low season storms

Tie-down the netting tight.
Tie up the tarpaulin right.
When this beauty hits us, darling,
It will knock us for an almighty six.

Our low season, on Ko (island) Lanta, south West Thailand on the Andaman sea, starts from around 20th May until about the 20th October when the winds change from east to west bringing the tail end of the Indian Nepal monsoon weather.

We get wonderful dramatic electric storm skies day and night, very exciting. As you can see from the photo above, the sea is aqua green and fairly calm, very beautiful, while the sky is a looming beast above her.
