My favourite pictures #9
I have always loved water.
My fearless antics around swimming pools as a 2 year old scared my non-swimming mother on many occasions. I did so many sponsored swims that by 8 years old relatives had said enough was enough, especially those who sponsored by distance.
I have been a swimming teacher, a lifeguard and a water-sports instructor.
Of course as someone who has always loved the water I have also always loved boats. I don’t mean big cruise liners, I mean sailing dingy’s and yachts, ribs and speed boats.
I have sailed and driven boats on lakes, rivers, seas and even oceans.
I once did a yacht delivery from Tenerife in the Canary Islands to Gibraltar.
I have hired small boats in the Greek Islands to go and explore the islands and “secret” beaches and coves.
I have been a passenger on many boats as well, enjoying the tourist sights or just travelling between locations.
I have seen beautiful seas, rough and angry seas, cold deep lakes and raging rivers. I have gazed down on stunning tarns from steep English Lake District mountains. I have stared through a face mask through murky water at the bottom of a flooded English quarry.
I don’t think I have seen more beautiful water than the Andaman Sea however.
The sounds of Long Tail boats plying their trade up and down the coast or just of gentle waves lapping against the beach.
The incredible islands and Karst cliff faces, soaring out from the water.
I love the Andaman Sea.
The Andaman Sea used to be known as the Burma Sea and primarily borders on Thailand and Myanmar plus parts of Indonesia and India (Andaman and Nicobar Islands).
