Temple party at Wat Plai Laem

Temple party at Wat Plai Laem from 26th to 30th July 2007

It's time for another party at the local temple, the by now familiar Wat Plai Laem, for my regular readers, or have a look here. The 29th and 30th July are Buddha days (respectively Asarnha Bucha Day and Buddhist Lent day). All public buildings will be closed and bars are closed as well. Restaurants are allowed to open though and funnily enough are also allowed to serve alcohol.

It's not a big party and we were a bit early, so not all stands were open yet.

The kids had a field day however in this play ground, filled by air and they had a lot of fun.

For the older kids, the boys, there was an electric racing circuit and I had a walk down memory lane to my Scalectrix days.

Gosh, I wish I was 8 year's old again. My friend Dave in Okinawa has gone past those days I guess, he's doing this with his own car

A few meters down to the beach, this spectacular sun set was unfolding.

Very nice view over the Bang Rak and Bophud bays.

Near by where also some fisherman's boats moored.

In the meantime, back in the boonies, the obligatory open air film screen, where open air movies are shown later at night.

Our big man is doing fine as well, in the early evening, with a full moon soon rising

Here's a picture of a room with illegal one armed bandits, oops, I mean, Buddha statues to give merit to each day of the week.
If you visit Thailand, there's similar parties on all the time, mostly in Temple grounds but sometimes just along the road. If you have the time, stop and have a look, they're interesting and a lot of fun to check out.
