It's a pool and reading day today.

Heading out later in the evening when it's cooler to enjoy

eating Thai food outdoors and listening to music.

Finding pleasure and joy in all photos

I have taken over the last few weeks

that showcase pink.

And just because my sweet little grand neice

Myla turned 2 last week.

She's adorable in pink.





Our last weekend here in Hua Hin.

We will be sad to leave here, but excited to see what lays beyond

the horizon further down south.

I thought I would share with you some of the photos

I have taken that have a turquoise twist to them.





Colors of the week.

In the past couple of weeks, I was looking for photos ops that

had an element of something with red in it.

Here are a few of the photos I took.

Surprisingly, not that many.




Wat Khao Lam Thom...

Wat Khao Lam Thom is a temple here in Tabiab

very near to us.

This was the first time we took the time to explore this part of the area.

It has several smaller

temples and statues within the compound, it's actually quite

a large temple area.

It hosts a farmers market a couple of times a week and is at the

end of the local bus route here.

We hopped aboard the songthaew and picked up some

lovely fresh fruit and vegetables.

I walked around the temple grounds to take

some photos and enjoy the

quiet and serenity that the grounds seem to provide.

I only saw one male monk in a saffron robe

and one female monk in her white robe.

I was unable to find out how old this temple is and where all the monks were during the day.



A very windy couple of days...

It's been windy and cooler the last couple of days.

This makes exploring easier as

it's not as humid and hot.

Here are a few photos of the resorts and area in and around

Takiab where we are.

We have one more week here, then heading south next Wednesday.

This sure is a contrast to the snow that fell

in BC today.



Some more happy photos of our

excellent adventure.

We are having quite a windy day here,

quite a change from the last few hot and sunny days.

When we go for our walk later, I will take some photos to show how the

oceans waves are rolling in and how the wind

whips the spray into a frenzy.




The market at Baan Dan Sing Kohn....

This village is on the Thai/Myanmar border about 2 hours south from Hua Hin.

The market is there for trade between the Thai and Myanmar

people, they can cross the border, but it's not

open for tourists (yet).

Sharon and Graham picked us up from the bus at Pranburi

and drove us on the 1 and 1/2 drive.

What great friends they have become.

The scenery really changed once we got off

main road, it became mostly farmland.

I just fell in love with all the orchids,

Booths and booths filled with these amazing orchids,

sadly we can not bring any home.

Just imagine, 3 potted plants for

100 THBT = $4.00 CDN.

Here are just a few of these beauties, some smelled

so incredible, like baby powder.


Just a sneak peek...

Tomorrow I will tell you about our wonderful day.

These couple of photos might be a clue!
