One night, here at Ko Mook, we found a mass of hermit crabs under the Thai massage hut. They had all different shells which made them look pretty. Coming back the next morning, we found they were all gone! Had they all died? But the next night, they had come back. I picked up a supposedly unused shell which immediately sprouted unexpected legs! I was terrified. I dropped it. Do you think you would have dropped it too?

Koh Chang is beautiful. It has a big beach and a small beach with rocks in between. The beaches have a layer of white sand over the top of black sand and we like it because it’s soft. Mummy doesn’t like the sand because it’s sticky and a bit muddy. She had to wash our bikini bottoms seven times and it’s still not gone. We’re going back to the beach again today. Poor Mummy!
If you try to go in the sea, you get stings all over your body. We think this is because it’s too salty.
The sea has crabs in it as do the rocks and the flat sand. So watch where you’re going! The crabs have snippers but the ones on the flat sand are tiny. They get out of your way so Tettie is not scared of them any more.
From our balcony, I once saw two crabs running away from a larger crab. They went really fast. I don’t like crabs. I don’t even like pickled crabs or barbecued crabs. But worst of all are big, living crabs. They look scary.
We live at Koh Chang Resort which is on the rocks in between the two beaches. Our bungalow is in the sea when the tide is in but we don’t get wet because it is on stilts. You can hear the sea washing around underneath you. It makes me fall aslee… zzzzzz…
