Big Tree seawall mural
Our friend An Maxtone painted the Big Tree seawall during her summer school break. We think it blends right in.
These pictures show the Big Tree deck from outside in August 2022. The deck can be a very pleasant sitting and dining area but can get very hot because of its openness to the sun, which shines directly into guests' eyes in the morning and heats up the roof on sunny days. This year we planted casuarina and eucalyptus saplings (two of each) in the gap between the deck and the front fence, and we look forward to enjoying their shade and beauty in the coming years.

Bodyboarding at Bai Xep, October 2022
Winter is almost here and the storms have already started sending big waves to our shores. Thao took this picture of Bai Xep youth bodysurfing and bathing in the waves one afternoon in mid-October. For the next few months the sea will often be rough here, sometimes so rough that even the bravest fishermen won't dare to go out, but usually just rough enough for swimmers to be able to play and get a thrill in the waves. An exciting time of year!
