The Red Lotus Sea( Lake)

 

077

It was a lovely sunny morning and we decided to take a trip to The Red Lotus Lake( Sea) locally known as Talay Bua Daeng. It was the wrong time of year to see the Lotus in full bloom so will going back in December to see that sight.We still saw a few but not many but witnessed a lot of birds and Water Buffalo who didn’t look best pleased at being disturbed…look at that grumpy face. The Buffalo are bought over in  the morning and taken back to terra firma in the evening.

and also the boatman took us to a little temple on a tiny, tiny island .

This island when the water is high is virtually submerged hence the big and I mean big steps leading up to the Buddha’s. The name of the temple is Wat Don Leung on the Nong Harn Lake. One of monks goes over to the mainland every morning to get food for the day.

We were also allowed to pick the seed pods of the lotus flower which I have seen for sale along the road but never knew what they were. I do now… They were lovely to eat a bit nutty…like me!
