A Day at Legian Beach

One of my favorite things in the world is to be on the beach. Legian Beach in Bali is definitely one my favorite beaches in the world. We spent two different days during our trip enjoying the sun, water, and people watching. Here are few pictures from the perfect first day:

The fabulous beach..

This coozy was the theme of the day!  

The fabulous guys that sold us lounge chairs and drinks. 

They brought this stuff out all excited to share with me. It's called Arak Madu. Arak is the vodka looking stuff in the bottle, and then they add honey and lime/lemon to it.. I guess that's the Madu? Hah, I don't know.

It wasn't the tastiest drink, but it was just too fun to pass up!


 The tide got so low, so quick.

View down the beach.

I'm not usually a coconut fan. But this fresh coconut is the best! I wish I could get it everywhere. A lady on the beach cracks open the coconut and snaps it into manageable pieces. It's fantastic.

I love this picture! I was walking down to the beach and snapped this quick pic of one of my new Balinese friends. 

As good as it could get on a cloudy evening. Beautiful none the less.

Fishing day in Bali

We came home last week from an amazing trip to Bali. We stayed for 6 days, and did so much that I thankfully have things to blog about for weeks. I'm gonna spread it out, cause I want to share so much!

We spent a day out with Ena Dive deep sea fishing. The beaches in Bali are out of this world. We went fishing off of Sanur Beach, and then spent the evening at a restaurant on the beach. Fabulous food and drinks, the best company, and fun music made for a very pleasant day. Here's what I saw:

The beach in the morning. I LOVE how the sun was shining on the water far away from us. So cool looking.

The offering that is placed on the boat. Some of them are so cute! They offer all these things to their god(s) for protection during the trip.

Beautifully clear water. Snorkel was great, except cut a little short because it was so cold!

The lunch on the boat. One sandwich was great, one not so much. Can you tell which is which? ;)

Jaxie and a fish he caught! It wasn't a good day for fishing. The boys only caught 3 little ones.

A beach.

"Would you like a cup of coffee?" Pleasant surprise on a fishing boat.

Waves in action.

People fishing on Sanur beach when we came in from our trip.

Delish satay on this cute little grill.

This beach restaurant was too fun! I love the "Arak Obama" cocktail. Haha. Remember the Arak- it'll come back in my next post!

Super low tide plus the sun setting makes me love this.

Cover band at the restaurant. 

I just like this picture. It was a hot mess of stuff, but I love the colors.

I hope you feel like you came with me! 

Job update-- I finally started working this weekend! It feels great to be back in the classroom. Getting up for something in the morning is a great feeling. The principal asked me come on as a permanent sub, so I'll have a job everyday! Which means I don't have to wait for the night-before or 5am call! :) I am beyond blessed.

I love you and miss you.
