In early October we took a three-day vacation to a seaside town called Hua Hin, only two hour drive from Bangkok. It is a much need relaxation as I foresee a lot of works in what supposed to be our two-week semester break. I was glad we can squeeze in this mini trip. We enjoyed McDonald and Gelato in Hua Hin town, before showing Iris how to play with sand and I jumped in the waves with her. Last year Iris refused to touch the sand but no problem this year. I got to run on the beach, which was in one of my wish list to do there. We had a good seafood dinner at Hua Hin night market, where an old lady weaving some coconut leaves up as a giant Mantis and show to Iris. The following day we explore more on the Khao Ta Kieb fishing village and the temple. We had another lunch by the beach observing the fisher men working with their boats. We were so glad that there were still school of fishes to see from the beach.
