Bai Long

Hard to believe we are already in the second block of the semester.  Last monday Mike had his first block exams of his second semester of med school.  He did well and passed all his exams - he had 3 this time.  As all his exams were in the morning we were able to take him to the beach for the afternoon.  The hard part was trying to decide what beach to go to that would keep everyone happy - mostly waves for the boys.  After seeing how busy Bai Rouge was we settled on Bai Long - we had actually never been there and thought it would be fun to try a new beach with Dad and Carith.  We don't have many pics because I forgot my camera and soon after we arrived Carith had some technical difficulties with hers.

We all had fun playing in the water - the shore was rocky and there was some reef and rocks that we could snorkel around and look at some pretty fish.  The observation was made that it appeared to the left of the beach entrance was a nude bathing area (all though this is not always - just the day we were there of course).  Ronan made the comment - "mom every beach here is a nude beach - look there are 5 nude people here".  I had to agree with him, from our experience it appears it is possible to see nude bathers at every beach.  The benefit - the boys have become very accustomed to seeing this and it is not to bothersome.  Except maybe when a male nude bather goes running down the beach to rescue our umbrella while we are all swimming and watching from the water.  OH a sight to be seen - then you add Ronan saying "Dad I am going to help get our umbrella" and Mikes response "oh no you just stay right here in the water  - it is just fine".  I would say time for Mike to have another beer.

The boys enjoying the water

We all had a nice time enjoying this new beach and we will be back I am sure.  It is quiet and has some fun shoreline for the boys to explore.

After the beach we went to the Greenhouse in Simpson Bay for some food and drinks.  They have a really good happy hour - drinks for 2 for 1 and 3 dollars off of appetizers.  The boys could play in the sand and we could watch the sunset over the bay and the boats getting ready to make it back into the lagoon for the evening.  It was a fun afternoon and evening with Dad and we look forward to the next one.
