We spent most of today just chilling out around the hotel and relaxing. This was our last day in Hoi An and the only thing that we really hadn't got around to doing was to visit the beach. It wasn't exactly the sunniest of days or the warmest of days ... but we had to see the beach before we left!
We hired another 2 bicycles from outside the hotel and made the short 3km trip down to the beach! The beach looked magnificent with the palm trees along the edge and the waves of the China Ocean crashing onto the beach. The water was actually very warm .. well warmer than the water in Thailand anyway, and we kind of regretted not going to the beach sooner!! We took a brief walk along the beach and found a few more of the circular fishing boats that I'd seen yesterday as well as a Vietnamese man that was fishing along the surf on the beach. He was using a very primitive method with just a spool of line that he would swing like a lasoo above his head before launching it into the surf. The then walked slowly along the beach 'jigging' at the line! I'll have to try this out when i get fishing again
After this we jumped back on the bikes and headed back to the hotel to get packed for the trip tomorrow.
