During the summer holiday, at the end of April 2003, my girlfriend, Richard and I went to Phetchaburi Province. We stopped to visit the famous summer palace of His Majesty King Vajiravudh, Rama VI. It is the Summer Palace that is located by the sea in Cha-Am district. This huge palace was built of golden teak and thousands of concrete pillars.

I rented my pregnant girlfriend a bicycle because I knew that she wouldn't be up to walking around this huge palace. My girlfriend went ahead to have a ride while Richard and I were walking and taking some pictures of the palace. We went up to the second floor and walked around looking in the rooms. It is all open so it is easy to see the inside of every room. We walked down the long open corridors to the pavilion on the beach and rested there. The view from the pavilion was so beautiful and also pretty windy there. We didn't want to get up and leave. It was so nice to rest there and look out to the sea and beach for a beautiful view. I also went down on the beach with my girlfriend to collect some lovely shells.

After we left the palace, I kept dreaming about having a holiday house on the beach like the palace for my own family! What a ridiculous dream I thought of.

My girlfriend and I are walking around the palace's garden heading to the pavilion by the sea. I am lying down on the floor at the pavilion. My girlfriend had a pretty hard time trying to get me up from the floor. I really loved the nice fresh air, comfortable wind and beautiful view there. At last, she did it! Then she was getting a bit moody with me! So I volunteered to ride her around the palace.

After riding around the huge palace, I was all sweaty. So my girlfriend and I went down to the beach to have a walk and collect some shells. Choosing some lovely shells on the beach while we were walking along.
