If only there were puppies

It begins with waking up in your bamboo beach bungalow and stepping out onto the porch to a view of the powder-fine white sand sloping gently to the jade and blue crystal clear water.

You then stroll down the beach for a few minutes, until you stop at the lovely little Spanish restaurant on the beach, where you lounge about on the built-in platform cabanas and eat amazing food, while watching the comings and goings of the fishermen.

After a leisurely lunch, you take a longtail boat taxi to Pattaya Beach on the other side of the island. You swim. You lay about in the sun. You sip watermelon fruit shakes and put your feet up.

Relaxing on Pattaya Beach, Koh Lipe. (If you're a regular reader of this blog, you might be noticing the foot-to-view perspective theme. It's because Jess M likes to take pictures of her feet in awesome places. She figures if her feet are somewhere great, so is the rest of her)

And at that point, it’s inevitable that you ask yourself: Could this day could possibly get any better? You turn to your friend and jokingly say “If only there were puppies, this day would be perfect.”

And then, there are puppies. No, really. Puppies.

Seven of them. Cute little squirmy, cuddly puppies who after running around on the beach all day, are all too happy to cuddle up with you (en masse) under your beach umbrella.

This one we called Runty. He sat on Jess M's lap for about two hours, in exactly this position.

This one we called Chewy.

Best day ever… (so far).
