Sekinchan

We took a breather from city life with an excursion to the outskirt of town.

A casual ride along the coastal trunk roads...

... to a small town by the name of Sekinchan.

We were greeted by makeshift stalls along the road...

... selling local produce such as fragrant mangoes, juicy rose apples...

... and sweet corns too.

I find the vast openness of the countryside really refreshing...

... especially for a city dog like me.

The rustling of the tall grass against the afternoon breeze...

... and a sense of tranquility that emits through the surroundings.

Enjoying a stroll...

... by the countryside.

Taking in the warm afternoon sun amid...

... the picturesque landscape of a tropical paddy field.

Rice grain on paddy plant awaiting harvest.

This square building is a huge swiftlet house for birds' nests harvesting, which also acts as a resting place for migratory birds.

A view by the riverbank along the coastal village...

... where the hoomans had their afternoon nom nom.

Such a blissful idyllic life here.
