Photo of the Day #1 (Chaweng Beach 1977)

We stayed at the only accommodation on Chaweng Beach, First Bungalows – there were maybe 6 bungalows, and a roofed restaurant.The photo is scanned from a transparency taken on my new Pentax ME, back in the olden days of real film and SLRs.

The morning I took the photo I’d have had the beach to myself. Wyn and I revisited Chaweng Beach last year on our travels in South East Asia. I’ll have to find a new photo to show the difference. Meanwhile, back in 1977 …
