The Beach in Thailand
We got to go to the beach in Southern Thailand with Shawn's family! The beach was outside of Hua Hin and we got to swim in the Gulf of Thailand. It was so much fun but also SO hot! The gulf was full of all kinds of sea life: crabs, sand dollars, and star fish. We had a great time finding them in the water and collecting shells from the sand. Also, each day the girls went to get massages while the boys rode around town on their scooters. It was a very small fishing town and the whole area smelled like fish! The first night that we got to the beach, there was a giant gecko on the wall in our cottage. It jumped on Shawn's mom's back and she screamed. We all tried and tried to shoo the gecko out but it was afraid of us! Finally we got the thing out and had a lovely gecko-free rest of our trip!
