What I did
We secure two loungers with ease, right by the pool and next to a MASSIVE russian lady. She smiles at us, showing a full set of shining gold teeth. For a moment is seems like we have slipped into a James Bond film. We settle down, order a couple of drinks (not martini's unfortunately), and lie back to enjoy the sun. The pool is fairly quiet and when the heat gets too much we slip into the cool water for refreshment
As the sun moves across the sky, the shade starts to cover our loungers so we request a move to the beach-side loungers instead. Only to be moved to some lovely loungers... that are also in the shade. Oh well. The sea at Nha Trang is angry. The 6 foot(ish) waves pound the steep beach with force. This is not a swimmers beach by any stretch of the imagination. So Ian, being a feeble swimmer, decides to dive in for a splash. He is tossed about like a rag doll and the waves push him onto him bum repeatedly as he tries to exit the sea, gasping for air and vomiting lungfulls of salt water. Much to Anna's amusement. Anna carries Ian's bruised body back to the room for rest. He then empties a quarter-ton of sand from shorts before slumping into an exhausted sleep.
We really enjoyed our day at the seaside so we make plans to relax on the beach again tomorrow
We awake the following morning with horrific hangovers and decide to try and relax on the beach again for our last half-day. It rains all day (another sigh). We nurse our jam-jar hangovers and chill in the room. Around 8pm we head out to catch our sleeper train to Saigon. Hopefully it won't be raining when we arrive...
