Cat Ba Island, Vietnam

Cat Ba Island is in Halong Bay which is known for 366 or so karst islands.



Lunch was on a floating restaurant.  


You pick what you want to eat from baskets-


or nets-


There were numerous options drying in the sun-


This is what I chose - mantis


and where it was cooked-


Delicious!


The boat trip around the islands was nice.  There are caves-


and sandy beaches-


I even got to try hand fishing-


but I didn't catch anything!  

The town of Cat Ba is quite nice-


There are numerous boats in the harbor-


The sunset was beautiful!


The day was very relaxing!  Looking forward to catamaraning tomorrow!  Hope the wind stays up!
