Cha Am May 2020

Thailand's soft lockdown for the Corona virus finally eased enough that we felt comfortable driving to the condo in Cha Am.

We finally figured out that there are two Dairy Home restaurants in Pak Chong. This is our first visit to the original.

Same good food.

And interesting surroundings.

Morning coffee at Cafe Muanchon. We stopped in here because there were none of the usual food vendors on the beach. 

Aroy restaurant had just recently reopened. Good food as usual.

Beach just north of the condo.

Fisherman at sunrise.

Fishing boat in front of the temporarily closed Springfield hotel.

Cha Am Beach is closed.

This old tree is on the breakwater at the Cha Am fishing harbor. It recently was toppled by big waves. The day after I took this photo is was righted and replanted.

Cha Am squid monument. Squid are an important part of the local fishing industry.

Damage to the fishing harbor breakwater.

Morning at the Coffee Bar in central Cha Am.

Coffee Bar

I Love Sweet bakery and restaurant. Because Cha Am was so empty we were able to visit a few restaurants we might otherwise avoid due to crowds.

A new property tax law was set to commence this year. Unused land would be heavily taxed. Agricultural land is exempt. So, many holders of vacant land are rapidly trying to get into agriculture.

Yes, it's a Pork Cheese Ramen Burger from 7Eleven.

Sunrise at Thew Talay

New pair of slippers after Mam blew out her flipflop.

Thick toast, ice cream and chocolate flavored condensed milk.

Our usual breakfast vendor had moved from the beach to a side street. She waved us down as we rode by.

Another new spot called Enjoyable Food. Quite good.

Storm on the way.

Short order restaurant at the end of Soi Bus Stop.
