The trip to Bali was, for lack of a better word, amazing. It was the perfect combination of sightseeing and relaxing. We walked through ancient caves; we washed our hands in holy water; we walked through part of the Indian Ocean to get to the temple of Tanah Lot; we fought monkeys to see a cliffside temple; we crawled through bustling, teeming markets; we marveled at rice paddies terraced into the side of a mountain; we admired handmade crafts; and we even shopped a little.
There are just no words with which to describe the sunsets. The red and gold sunk into the sky just touching and traipsing over the deep azure of the rolling waves. Teh rays of the sun outlined the wispy clouds like gentle kisses of jewels.
One great part of the trip was spending it with our good friends Charlene and Jamey Lamanna and their kids, Joey, Laura and Alex. After a week together, I'm pleased to report that we're still good friends!
A highlight of the trip was the Dolphin Lodge. We were able to swim with, play with and pet the gentle animals in their own environment. It was an unparalleled experience.
In lieu of a bunch of photos, I've attached a short (I promise) slide show here. Enjoy!!
