Ok, so we are here!!!
Qatar flights perfect. 30 mins early to Doha, 45 mins early to male! Sea plane due at 9.30, we were in the air by 9.10!! And I had just bought another coffee and had to leave it!! Very cool female pilot. She was very good and flew right at the edge of the clouds,not through them, which made for some spectacular viewing.
Thud is very pretty. The staff are lovely, our wv was not ready when we arrived, so they gave us a beach bungalow untll 1. 30pm. They are quite basic, but with really fab bathrooms! I had a shower and refreshed myself, it was a long trip!!
The water villa is great, such a huge terrace. Daughter plonked herself on the sunbed, put her iPod on, opened one eye and said "yeah, I like it" high praise indeed!! Seriously!
We are all totally knackered, in 24 hours we have had about 1 hours sleep. Tomorrow we are having breakfast on the deck, so we don't have to leave the room till lunch.
I am sitting on the deck, with a glass of rosé, a tad tiddly, not quite onons "shedded"but getting there, need to go to bed according to hubby!! Going to explore the reef more tomorrow, as right now we know meed beats kuramathi, but from what we can see meed might also beat thud in terms f sea life. That's a scarey thought!!!!
Oh and yep, weather is fab, sooooo hot!! Fingers crossed it lasts!! :-))
