Similan Research and Margaret's Interview Part 2

Today the blog tour returns to Margaret's Blog for Part 2 of the interview I did with her. I hope you enjoy it.

I'm tearing my hair out this morning because the second time we went to Phukett, my husband and I drove up to Khoa Lak to research Similan dive trips. Khoa Lak is a tiny village the boats that go to the Similans dock at. I took all kinds of pictures and videos, and somehow there isn't a single shot in my iPhoto. I wanted to post them today! Oh, well. We'll have to go right to the Similans. I've never been to the Similan Islands or the Burma Banks--actually they are technically now the Myanmar Banks. So I researched the area and diving their online. I found a wealth of material. Even a YouTube video that inspired one of Leesie's poems and led me to order a full-length DVD on diving in the area. I probably depicted those dives better than the dives that I'd actually dove myself. All that expert material. The video is no longer available, but here's the pictures I saved. The first one is a whale shark. Poor, Michael. He didn't ever meet up with one.

This is Honeymoon Bay!
