Weekender Chalets in 1984

look at Weekender now
Check out of paradise cabins after four nights at 40B, bill with food comes to 276B. Check into Weekender sharing wood cabin number one next to beach with picturesque wreck of fishing smack moored high and dry to a coconut palm outside the window.
Weekender chalets form an avenue of two rows of verandered huts marching back off the beach to Moma’s Joint. About fifteen huts in each row. The huts are four coconut palms apart. It is very attractive. Saw up two planks to make a small escritoire across one corner of the cabin.

Three person cabin, Tom Mikael Will, for 80B. One double and one single on the veranda. Have rota for the windy bed on the veranda. Looks quite royal and palatial with the mosquito nets draped in the air (four strings attached) over the beds.

Our compound looked like a Japanese prisoner of war camp this afternoon. A tall east European with a crew cut has come off his motorbike - like so many others. The local clinic have liberally painted his scrapes with bright red Mercurochrome and added a good collection of dry dressings. With him limping around I half expect to see Alec Guinness staring madly at me in the khazi. (visited Kwai bridge on the last trip and it’s nothing like the film). Play backgammon. Lose. Sleep in windy bed. Luckily no rain tonight.
