Armed with a list of local produce to buy, we recce Chat Chai market in the morning.
This vendor strictly enforces a no-fly zone around her merchandise.

The Baan Manantha Hotel serves the same complementary brekkie every day. I'm not complaining, though -- there's bacon!
To get to Hua Hin Hills Vineyard, we take the daily shuttle from Market Village, Hua Hin's largest and most up-to-date shopping mall. It's about a 2km hike from our hotel.
Local wine under the Monsoon Valley label comes from here, Hua Hin Hills Vineyard.
Only baby grapes are on the vines. Harvest is long over.

...sipping [home-made] grape soda.
Seafood pasta for lunch.
Sunset at the fishing pier.
Dinner including a lovely filler-free oyster omelet at the (hey) Meekaruna! Asked for a lemon juice, got a lemon sorbet instead. Delicious!
Dropped in on the Grand Night Market next to the Grand Hotel & Plaza.
