The Verdant Lagoon

The Verdant Lagoon
June 2004

While kayaking through the archipelago of Ang Thong National Marine Park, off the southern coast of Thailand, I visited at several different islands to tie up and hike inside.  This one, who's name I did not catch, had a steep hike up, which crested over this aquamarine lagoon sitting in the middle (yes this is the original color, no photoshopping).  It was fed from the ocean, but maintained its own unique ecosystem within the island.  The whole park was a beautiful day trip for those who love kayaking; being out on the warm water, kayaking through sea caves, reveling in the bliss of the day.  Enjoy.
