Took a trip over to the Mainland again today to get down and dirty in some mud. Not just any old mud. Thick, gooey, squelchy, glorious MINERAL mud! The mineral spa is about a 30 min cab ride from where we got off the speedboat though some tiny narrow streets. Our entry included a mud bath for 4, mineral waterfall and mineral pool. Believe it or not, kids aside, it was quite relaxing (and fun). On the way there Quid was saying there was NO WAY he was going to have a bath in mud. Very quickly changed his mind and threw himself in. The pool afterwards was about the same temperature as a bath. Wonderful! We left feeling relaxed and refreshed and hungry. Stopped at the Louisiana brew house for quick bite to eat and some liquid refreshments then speedboat back to the resort. A great morning!

We don't get it but we are rolling with it. Mullet spotting here has become our favoritie pastimes here. Believe me, some of these would put Billy Ray to shame. Who'd have thought it. I thought Russia was famous for Vodka. Here is a selection of our covert finest.......
Lets just say we are having a blast. These kids just do not stop (big one included). There is so much to do here. The kids go from beach to pool to fun park to water park. We are stuffing ourselves at the all you can eat buffets for breakfast, lunch and dinner but hopefully working it off in the pool. The place is full of holidaying Viets and middle aged Russians. At least the women make me feel like Elle on the TAB cola add! Would not recommend for a romantic break or a honeymoon but for our needs it is perfect!
