Three girls and baby

While I was on my daily photowalk a couple of weeks ago in Hua Hin, Thailand, I happened upon a small group of children playing on the beach.  Playing is not the right term as they were basically passing the time while there parents were nearby prying mussels from the exposed rocks at low tide.  I was immediately struck by how needy these children and their parents looked amongst the high end hotels and condominiums.  The parents looked to be making a living looking for meager amounts of mussels.  Really there were very few.  So along with the wealthier visitors are the needy.
