Our trip to the beach

A few weeks ago we went to Vung Tau, a beach town about 2.5 hours by car from Saigon. We took a boat instead (called a ‘hydrofoil’) which shortens the trip to 1.5 hours. It was decent weather and we were all in good spirits, having the urgent need for a break from this city – we hadn’t left it in nearly a year.

Upon check-in, we realized The Dear Leader of North Korea was still alive and staying at our hotel (second name from the bottom).

Jacob’s first time floating and swimming by himself!

Before leaving, I had to try the organ jam. (Orange).

This is pretty much what we were all like after the trip.

Storm clouds gathering early Sunday morning. It rained the entire day!

A good trip and a long time coming. We were glad of the sea air despite the storm and rain and felt happily tired once we got home. – Dave
