Blue, Blue Adventures

Every Friday is a fun day to meet fellow moms at Mommy Moments. BLUE is this week's theme so, like red, we have lots of this color in our archives but I have decided to share our recent family escapades in Eastern Thailand. In this tour, the kids enjoyed lots of new adventures including going to a cave, boat ride around the fishermen village and mangrove park trailing apart from the usual swimming at the pool and beach and biking. The top photo shows the blue boat we took to get to the mountain where the cave with a temple-like royal pavilion inside.  

Take a deep breath! We're now about to climb on the mountain top to get to the
Phraya Nakhon Cave in Khao Sam Roi Yot National Park. 
Doesn't look tired after climbing a very steep mountain half kilometer up. She poses close to the dry waterfalls. El Nino phenomenon dries up this waterfall.

Mountain-climbing is peanuts for this boy. He climbs with a stick as taught in their camping.
Finally we reach the Royal Pavilion in Phraya Nakhon Cave. It is said that three kings including the reigning one used to visit this cave and this pavilion was built as their resting place.

Not tired at all! From mountain-climbing, he still runs to the beach to cool down himself.
 No, he's not wearing any blue at all but just look at the blue sea and his picture below where he enjoys watching the sakura blooms falling down.
 Kuya and Baby love it here everyday.
 My boy who is already bored of me asking him for a picture-taking covers his face with his blue cap and the life-vest. And here we're on our last adventure destination for 3 days - Mangrove Trailing and Boat Riding around the Mangrove Park to the Fishermen Village.
And the last day of our retreat, we got the chance to tour around the Mangrove Park through Thailand's biggest fishermen's wharf in Pranburi.It's our first time to see fleets of ships and boats, not warships but fishing ships and boats.
Look at the blue, blue sea! The girl in blue is one of the professors' very smart daughter. From the long boat trip, this is our final destination - our last supper at a seafood restaurant on the seaside in Huahin, a town next to Pranburi where our hotel is. It's a very beautiful night out with the full moon shining over us reflecting on the blue sea..


Happy Mommy Moments, dear friends! May you all enjoy your weekend ahead.
