Since December 23rd I have been a beach bum in Hua Hin, Thailand. Located a two hour drive outside of Bangkok, and home to the Thai Royal family summer residence, it’s a perfect spot for a beach holiday. Here are a few random shots I took today…

  1. Oh, please, can I be a beach bum, too? The only thing I”m missing from these pictures is the guy selling silk scarves.

  2. I had already seen these photos on flickr. I particularly like the first one. I’d choose a warm Christmas and New Year over a white one any day.

  3. Nice, I love these photos. Interestingly enough, I also have a water theme for this week’s TPT. (Will be posted shortly)

  4. What the life!! really love that last horseback riding photo. I can imagine myself there!!

  5. For me, Christmas has to be white, crisp and cold. New Years, too. But come January, I wouldn’t flying kites in Hua Hun for a while 🙂

  6. I always love a good beach for taking in the new year. It makes my cheese-head family and friends jealous!!!

  7. Wow ! I wanna be a beach bum, too.

  8. I particularly like the light in that first photo. Looks lovely. Enjoy your well earned rest, Nancie!

    Thanks for providing Travel Photo Thursday. All the best to you for the coming year!

  9. Apologies if you tried to use my link (#1) I’ve put the correct one up at #9 and you can also follow the comment luv link below this comment. (Nancie, is there a way to remove #1 from the list, or edit it?)


  10. Happy New Year to all of you! And thanks much Nanci for keeping this going. I’ve not only seen some wonderful photos, been tempted by new interesting destinations, but also feel like I’ve made some new blogosphere friends! Enjoy your travels`

  11. Ah, what a way to fly! And no airfare to pay, either!

  12. Being a beach bum sounds really good to me right now (especially since I’m nursing a cold). Guess I’ll have to settle for looking at your great pics instead.

  13. Looks like you could be pretty active – if you wanted!

    I missed last week, so just checked in now. I LOVE your Christmas pictures from last week. I really wish I could have been there with you.

    Happy New Year, Nancie!

  14. I have always loved a tropical Christmas. How lucky you are to be there right now. Wonderful pictures! I’m imagining being one of those in the massage beds. Happy New Year!

  15. Beach photos in the middle of the winter… since I just came from outside and I’m a little frozen, it’s just what I need!

    To all the participants to Travel Photo Thursday, Happy New Year!

  16. Looks like a lovely place to spend the New Years!
    Happy New Year everyone and see you all in 2012 🙂

  17. Glad you are enjoying your time in Thailand and beng a “beach bum”. 🙂

    Hope you had a great Christmas and all the best in 2012!

  18. Being in Thailand is a good escape from the intense cold in the winterland. Your New Year must be perfectly warm. I wish to join this TPThursday real soon.

  19. Happy New Year, LadyE 🙂
