Sunday Beach Picnic

by Adam

At 7:30, I went to the canteen to have breakfast (potatoes, 2 sausages, 3 croissants).  The serving lady was funny, she said “you are beautiful boy”.  So I replied “merci”. lolol.

Went to get on the bus at 8:45.  But it took a while before the bus left.

The first stop, was at Kone, for food.  I took some photos around here while waiting, just to remember us, in Kone Smile

Then back onto the bus, and headed to Faoue beach.

It was my first time to this beach.  When we got there, it was quite cloudy.

Many of the Filipino guys headed straight to the water and started pulling crabs out!

When you stop for a moment, and look into the water, there is so much life in there!  I saw many starfish, and didn’t want to walk into the water, I didn’t want to step on them!

Then I left with Josh instead of waiting for the bus.  When I got back to camp, I had a shower and relaxed for a bit, then went to play tennis with Andrew.  It was just more practice for me, and it was a lot of fun.  We do ridiculous things.  We played across two tennis courts, hitting over the centre fence.  I’m really bad at playing, I wanted to hit the ball, but instead, it hit my forehead.  I hope it doesn’t bruise.  Then Scott came back (with the bus, which was delayed, and then broke down, then they had to wait for the replacement bus!), and then I left. 

I ate so much today that I’m too full to go to dinner.

Goodnight
