I LOVE CHA-AM

This weekend just past, saw the celebration of the annual Cha-am kite festival; fortunately, this lovely little seaside town was embraced for the whole weekend by an energetic onshore south easterly, which ensured that the clear blue skies above the beach were littered with dancing, billowing kites of many different shapes, colours and imaginative design.

It was an uplifting (pun), cheerful and happy occasion that brought even more colour and fun to this already vibrant little seaside town ……….. I LOVE CHA-AM
