Here's another photo of that small island off Nai Yang Beach. I thought it looked cool when the clouds started to build above (and beyond) the island.
After hiking for a few hours (with lots of stops for snacks and photos), we finally arrived at The Stone Lake. We were a bit tired and hesitated a few times on the way, but it was worth it when we saw this spectacular view.
Almost every day I walked along this beach in the morning light waiting for the rest of the world to wake up. I often stopped and enjoyed these patterns in the sand. In their simplicity, they are very complicated and beautiful.
