Nha Trang to Phan Rang

Via the Military monument at Cam Ranh Bay.

Big day from Nha Trang to Phan Rang following the most beautiful uninhabited coastline for 120kms. Paradise in quite a few places with new satellite villages ( modern style ) resorts, and ultra modern apartments ( million dollar price tags ) developments in the early stages happening along the coast.

A Soviet Union/Vietnam military monument ( Air Force & Navy ) came into view when pedaling along when almost reaching Cam Ranh Bay airport. I had a late start this morning but off to my left when approaching the monument and looking straight into the 10.00 am sun the most outstanding marble monument came into view. A jet fighter aircraft strategically carved at the top of the monument to allow the sun at that certain time of the day to cast a shadow of the aircraft image across the marble floor and into the courtyard in front. A navy seaman and airman holding a small boy on his shoulder ( holding a peace dove ) stand above the base of naval destroyer making it one of the better war monuments I've seen in quite awhile.
