Lost in Halong Bay, watercolor and ink. Erin Lau © 2009

Aboard a Chinese Junk, the four of us plied the emerald waters of Halong Bay, skirting the Karst outcroppings, stopping to kayak, swim to secluded beaches, feast on fresh seafood, and sleep under the stars on the deck (by our request). In the middle of the night I crept downstairs to splash and oar through the magical phosphorescent water, and though tempted to swim, decided to let my half-asleep body go back to star gazing.

      I’m so happy with the sketchbook I used- the Handbook one you suggested! I hope I can find another in OZ.
