Had a much better day today. We left Surat Thani behind us and headed East to the Donsak ferry terminal 62km away. We had a dead line of 1.30pm because we had to catch the ferry. The road was ok until we reach a long stretch with heaps of pot holes. Now these were not your average pot holes. I was worried that if Paddy fell in one we would never see him again.
We were weaving our way through the potholes quite well until I took one too close and plowed my front wheel into deep loose gravel. My front wheel made it through and I thought I was going to make it but then my back wheel slipped and I went down hard. Robert jumped off like a frog so he was ok. I was not as agile and ended up on the road. I have some great scrapes and bruises on my left hand side especially my elbow, hip and knee.
We ended up making it with time to spare. We had a really smooth ferry ride to Koh Samui and found our quiet hotel tucked away off the main street. We are all safe and sound.
