Our last breakfast with all these people. The hotel must be full because every morning it's luck that we find a table so all 4 of us can sit together for breakfast. Our flights aren't until later this afternoon so we have time. We process our check outs. I have to only pay for room service and some drinks from the mini fridge. 380 baht. I have given Dorie all the stuff I brought from home in our bags. For Dorie-a new Lumix camera as a late Xmas present. For Ronan-a book, the game Operation, 2 Lego sets and 2 race car sets. Dorie also really liked the flip flops I bought in Bangkok and they fit her so I give them to her. In addition things I've bought on this trip-one T shirt from each country for Ronan, a toy flute like instrument I bought in Cambodia; for Dorie a pair of those light weight pants they sell all over in Cambodia and the celadon jewelry container I bought in Chiang Mai. Now my bags are lighter!!
POOL One last time for 1 hr. We leave the set of the beach toys here for other kids to enjoy as Dorie doesn't want to take them home with her.

All good things must end. Dorie and Ronan leave for the airport in a taxi. We have loaded our rental car and we head to the airport a few minutes after they leave. We pass the HEROINES MONUMENT. This was erected as a memorial to 2 sisters-Chan and Mook-who led the people of Phuket against the Burmese invaders during the Battle of Thalong in 1785. King Rama I gave the sisters honorary titles of Thao Thep Krasattri and Thao Si Sunthon.
Arriving at DMK in Bangkok I find an ATM and withdraw 15000 baht for the remainder of our time in Thailand. Taxi service desk again and taxi to our hotel via expressway.
BOSSOTEL This is our 3rd stay here. We will be here for 3 nights. I put the balance of 3600 baht on my credit card. Room rate is 1800 baht per night, breakfast and all taxes included. This time we have room 615. It's almost like the other rooms we've had. It's been an exhausting day so we just walk to the McDonald's for 2 spicy chicken sandwiches, sprite and coke for 212 baht.
