I feel a sense of space and contentment. Warm breezes, a beach side hut, swimming in big waves, and delicious food everywhere we eat. Pho is the national soup, eaten at breakfast and other times of the day. The stock is the key. I've tried pho many times and had the best pho stock at a local, sand-floored restaurant here. It was absolutely amazingly delicious! Food in Vietnam is the best....

We share laughter daily with the Vietnamese people - from our favourite corn vendor to the very friendly guy who works at the clothing store next door to us.

Mui Ne is becoming the kite-surfing center in the world and we were mesmerized by the activity.

Above - colourful half moons
dancing in the wind
Below - speed,
rooster tails of ocean spray
A graceful collection of dots on the waves.

Flying, hanging weightless
Maybe a somersault
And land
or plunge into the waves.
A dazzling ocean scene.

Palm leaves waving wildly
to the kite-surfers
Intense concentration
Every muscle engaged in the pursuit
of board, wind, wave, kite

Brilliant, Donna. Now I know how my friends felt, when they'd read my posts about being in Venice, and other lovely spots, while they were holed up sipping coffee in a cafe on a cold and dark winter morning while their kids played hockey.
Even though it's a glorious sunny day here, and a bit warmer, it's still winter in Alberta and your blog is a vicarious vacation!
