Looking ahead at a group in front of us. Each person had their own cart and driver/caddy.
Of course I had a caddy and a driver! Teresa was behind the wheel! (And only slightly safer a driver than Mike!)
Taking a photo at the hills covered with coconut trees.
Shooting over the water. If you can believe it, I actually made this shot!
The Laem Chabang Country Club.
Here is a shot of our room, upgraded to the Executive Suite. I liked the nautical interior theme.
Looking out our balcony at the bay. It would be easy to get used to this kind of life.
On another day we took one of the water taxi's out to the island called "Koh Ro". Koh mean island in Thai.
Captain Teresa!
Looking back at our hotel from a short distance out in the bay.
Mike's friend Risa accompanied us. She and her friend Miss B own their own tour company. Teresa and I really liked these two ladies. Very nice, very professional. I definaetly reccomend them to arrange your golf and other vacation excursions in the Pattaya area.
Every day the skies of the bay were filled with para-sailers.
Boat rides are fun. The sun and wind...
I was enjoying myself too. Notice the tan on the outside of my arms...:)
Going around the front of Koh Ro
And landing on the back side. We rented a few chairs and snorkeling gear for a couple of dollars. For the whole day!
Later we snorkeled out past the boats in the distance. There was decent coral and sea life about a hundred feet out, where the depth was about 50 feet.
But we also spent a good amount of time snorkeling in the protected swimming area. We would toss coins out and then hunt for them. Or hide them under rocks. We did lose a couple of coins that way tho. But still, it was fun!
Still on our honey moon! The prettiest woman in the world!
We tried to keep from getting too much sun, but near the end of our trip we did get a bit too much on a snorkeling day.
Mike got all tired out, and didn't even make it back to his chair in the shade...
A monkey came down from the jungle and camped out on a tree a ways down from us. He raided a garbage can and had a bit of a snack.
Looking out from our balcony in the middle of the day. really nice view.
Another view of Pattaya Bay.
Dusk on the beaches of Pattaya.

In Cambodia it was Tuk Tuk's. In Pattaya it was "Baht Buses". These are open backed trucks, that you climb into the back of. They drive in big circles around the beach area. You hit a buzzer when you want to get off. A dollar a person is the fair for tourists. There are hundreds of these all the time circling. Very easy to use.
A shot of a street a few blocks from the beach.
Sunset in Pattaya...
Looking down at them getting ready for the nightly seafood buffet.
Relaxing and reading on our "tiny" balcony, at sunset.
We had a good time visiting both Cambodia and Thailand, but it was time for us to return to work. Teresa had accounting issues waiting for her, and we are now into our Federal End Of Year closeout at work as well.N
A really nice vacation with the perfect lady! I am a very lucky guy!

Up at 3am to drive almost two hours to Bangkok International Air Port. Here we are waiting to get on our plane, heading back home to Tokyo.

When I get some photos from Mike, I'll post some more images.
