Green placid water.
Tall jutting cliffs Vietnamese myth attribute to dragons.
Monkeys and fish.
Sean and I spent:
... three days idly floating through the bay and surrounding waters.
... two nights curled up together in the chair on our balcony.
... two mornings lazily watching the sun rise.
... three days kayaking, laughing, and sun bathing.
Halong Bay is truly indescribable.
So, I won't try.
Just know, whenever I hear the word paradise I will close my eyes and think of the time we spent sleeping with the dragons.
