Photographer's Note

Ko Tao (also often Koh Tao, Thai: เกาะเต่า, lit. "Turtle Island" not due to its shape, but because there were lots of turtles living here in times past) is an island in Thailand, located near the eastern shore of the Gulf of Thailand.

Administratively, the island is part of Surat Thani province, in the district (Amphoe) Ko Pha Ngan.
All boats dock at Mae Haad, a small village with only a few bars and shops. The most popular place is Sairee's beach. Sairee's white sandy beach stretches about 1.7 km over most of the west coast, interrupted only by a few huge boulders.
The island is reachable by boat from Ko Pha Ngan in app. 3 hours, from Surat Thani in app. 9 hours and from Chumphon app. 6 hours. This island can also be reached in one and one-half hours from Ko Samui.
The island is well known for scuba diving. Unlike Ko Samui and Ko Pha Ngan, Ko Tao is not yet developed and thus not flooded with tourists.

High tide or in low tide

In high seas or in low seas
I'm gonna be your friend,
I'm gonna be your friend.
In high tide or in low tide,
I'll be by your side,
I'll be by your side.

(I heard her praying, praying, praying)
I said, I heard my mother,
She was praying (praying, praying, praying)
And the words that she said (the words that she said),
They still linger in my head (lingers in my head),
She said, "A child is born in this world,
He needs protection,
Got, guide and protect us,
When we're wrong, please correct us.
(when we're wrong, correct us).
And stand by me." yeah!

In high seas or in low seas,
I'm gonna be your friend,
He said, "I'm gonna be your friend."
And, baby, in high tide or low tide,
I'll be by your side,
I'll be by your side.

I siad I heard my mother,
She was crying' (I heard her crying'), yeah! (crying', crying'),
And the tears that she shed (the tears that she shed)
They still linger in my head (lingers in my head)

She said: "A child is born in this world,
He needs protection,
Got, guide and protect us,
When we're wrong, (when we're wrong), correct us.

And in high seas or low seas,
I'm gonna be your friend,
I'm gonna be your friend.
Said, high tide or low tide,
I'll be by your side,
I'll be by your side.
