Honeymoon guesthouse Ubud bali
Same place…an oasis of calm.
Somewhere in the Atlas mountains Morocco
The entrance way to a mosque deep inside the city of Fez Morocco
I’ve always had a fascination for entrance ways……there are many.
I’m visiting Bali for a few weeks…
So much beauty everywhere…even amongst the chaos and noise tranquil places can be found and eyes can feast…
A frangipani flower caught up in a large leaf….
A spike of exquisite purple flowers twined on a tree…
A door to tantalize ….. beyond…
A never ending Bali sunset….
Currently visiting Bali with my sister….this afternoon went for a stroll down a small lane or a gang as it is called in Indonesian….
This is what i noticed…
Such a beautiful place….
Late afternoons are always a good time for a walk along the beach pathway at sanur…. though anytime can be interesting.
The month of August is known as the windy month and huge kites that sing (not often in tune) fly high in the sky.
I always wonder what might be behind these doors.
Gunung Agung in the distance
Some clouds brewing on the horizon.
A rough hewn doorway…
The indonesian flag spread in the wind.
A fabulous fan….
And to finish with a beautiful orchid spray. My heart is full 😊
A very special convergence….celebrating independence under the full moon.A holiday after the flag ceremony and a special ceremony for some in Bali.
This temple is tucked away deep in a valley high in the mountains surrounded by forest….
Underneath the umbrella of an old and wise tree
We walked around the side ofthe mountain from the temple along a steep narrow track.
The views were spectacular, the smells of the surrounding forest rich and fresh.
Back at the temple the ceremony continues…
Thank you to Pak Agus and his extended family for making me feel so welcome…
Sunday is the weekend in Indonesia for most people…a day to sleep in, catch up with family, go on a picnic, clean up the house and maybe visit friends…..and sometimes catch up with work or school chores….Today we went sightseeing.
The beachfront at Lovina Bali….
My friends heading out to sea possibly to play. 🙂
Ive got better things to do….we ate a delicious meal of barbecued fish at this restaurant by the sea.
Then home for a well deserved rest.
A late walk in the afternoon with the kids
This sawah (rice paddy) will be harvested tomorrow.
This farmer will harvest it!
And finally a very pretty balinese cow (in indonesian sapi)
A very full fun day !!
