Adventures in Vietnam: Beach Dayzzz

Vietnam was overall really relaxing!  We went to the beach everyday the kids were in absolute heaven.  We played in the sand, went boogie boarding, and Bennett was obsessed with running and flinging himself down on the ground over and over again.  It was hilarious!

One day, while we were out swimming, a man came walking down the beach pulling an extremely long rope that was connected to a net or something out in the ocean.  I can only assume he was fishing, but it was unlike any other fishing method we had ever seen!  And since he was pulling it right through where our kids were playing, they decided to help the guy out!  Here they are pulling the rope from beach:

And one evening while we were on the beach, a sweet lady came walking by carrying big pots on her shoulders.  She was selling homemade, warm tofu with brown sugar and ginger for $1/bowl.  I couldn't resist!  So, she dished me up some in an actual glass bowl with a metal spoon and then she sat and waited while I ate it!  It was so delicious!  I would love to know how she made it!

While in Hoi An, we also did our fair share of pampering :)  Peter got 2 or 3 massages, Clara and I both got our nails done, and I also got a massage!  And none of them cost more than $7.  Amazing.  

Our other favorite thing to do on the beach was to eat at Soul Kitchen!  Soul Kitchen was just a few steps down the beach from our house, and it was great!  We loved the food (and the convenience) and we ate there numerous times!  Plus, being right on the beach, the views just couldn't be beat!
