Here are some of the photos I took while we were on the island of Koh Samui, Thailand, earlier this year:
Chinese New Year and the year of the dragon. This cute image was on a shop door
the bride arrives on the back of an elephant for her beach wedding
what an idyllic setting for a wedding
I found this heart on the beach on Valentine’s Day
the best prawn cocktail I’ve ever eaten
the same goes for this wonderful tempura
we went on a fishing trip and our friend caught this barracuda. It was just over 1 metre long and weighed over 7 kg.
we cut the fish into steaks, wrapped each steak in a piece of banana leaf with garlic, chilli, and a slice of lime, and then grilled them. The fish fed 20 people!

one of the babies being fed by its mother after it fell out of the nest. We put it back and the parents continued to feed it until it fledged

come on mum, where’s my grub? Actually I think this one is dad, he has much more colourful plumage
