Hua Hin

The old man and the sea – a lesson in buddhism

The first time we saw him was quite early in the day. He was sitting in his small fishing boat in a small bay close to the Hilton hotel in Hua Hin. He was an old man, sitting in his small boat, and looking at de sea. He didn’t move, and he was apparently not looking at anything – just sitting there, as time went by. It seemed a bit strange because the boat was on land, 50 meters from the sea, and we asked ourselves: What is he really doing?

We bought a beer in a nearby restaurant, and just loooked at him. One hour passed, and he did not move. Still sitting there, not moving. Then he climbed out of the boat, went 20 meters, found a battery, normally used in cars, and carried into the boat. He sat down, and again just looked at the sea. About an hour later, he climbed out of the boat again, and came back ten minutes later with fishing equipment and some fluorescent lamps he used for fishing squids, I suppose. Then he sat down in his boat again – just looking, doing nothing.

A couple of hours later the sea had come closer to his boat. Another hour, and the small waves reached his boat. The sun was setting and it was soon getting dark. But now we understodd what he had been doing all day. He had been waiting for the sea.
