Jake’s Sunday Post challenge: Water H2O

Jake’s new Sunday Post theme is “Water, H20,” and I’ve certainly had more than my fair share of the stuff this past week in Phuket. We came here expecting 9 days of sunshiny weather, but Mother Nature decided otherwise. As some of you may have seen on my previous posts, we have had monsoon rains here, and a trip out to visit various islands on Wednesday, turned out to be a very wet excursion indeed. Here is the heavy rain we had to contend with whilst walking around an ‘indoor’ market on Sea Gypsy Village Island. We were paddling ankle-deep in water, and I felt so sorry for the people who lived there, as their houses must also have been flooded.

Of course water is something we can’t live without. We drink it, wash with it, and swim in it,

sail on it,

and relax next to it.

We also make pretty water features to decorate our living spaces.

Would this dolphin look so happy if he didn’t have water to play in?

And where would this alligator swim if his water was taken away?

Many birds love to be by the water, because they know that in its depths are the fish which they love to catch and eat for dinner.

Sometimes water can look very ugly, when it creates muddy puddles such as this.

On our walk back from dinner every evening here, we hear the call of mating frogs. This pond full of water, is where they go to meet their lady friends. I haven’t seen them, but I know they’re hiding in there somewhere, and they sure make a lot of noise about their courting. πŸ˜‰

Tomorrow I’ll be flying over a great expanse of water, as my plane wings its back to South Africa. When I get home again, what will I see when I look out of my window? More water of course. πŸ˜‰

Next time I chat with you, I’ll be back home, after a wonderful holiday.
