So I woke up at 4:30am the first morning and went for a walk. (Please do not mention to Dee Dee that I went out before daylight in a strange country on the first day I was there. Thank You.) That is what you do when you have been traveling for two days and want to stretch.
But, do you know what I saw that first morning when I walked? Karate on the beach. And why this was so reassuring, I am not sure. But I snapped this picture later, cause who can pass that up? There were also Marines running on the beach, which is reassuring as well in a whole different way on your first morning.
I also found this super playground on Araha Beach which kept my kids busy on many afternoons. It is a huge pirate ship with a tiny zip-line.
