When you are on a beach, there is nothing but sunshine, blue skies and cool ocean waves surrounding you... what would you do? Soak it in?

Us too!!! Since the last blog we didn't really do much other than eat, sunbathe and sleep so there isn't a whole lot to write about.

One thing, or person I guess, that definitely makes it into this blog is Fernando, our new Brazilian friend!! He is this energetic friendly guy who loves to surf, loves his wife, loves playing the ukelele, loves travelling and all around loves life!! It was awesome just sitting around shooting the shit with him when he wasn't out in the waves. He speaks four languages and has been to some absolutely amazing places. We were so happy to have met him. Plus he is a great connection for when we do our South America trip.

On a day that I was content just hanging out around our Inn (with my beach chair and book), Tyler and Fernando rented a motorbike and checked out the rest of the island that Tyler and I didn't get a chance to see. They went over to the other island, Nusa

On the other side of the island, Tyler took this picture on his bike ride with Fernando
Cenida, and found some pretty nice spots. There was a place called Blue Lagoon that you could do cliff jumps from but they charged you $5 a jump (pfft it's free at Kilbear....). They also found a restaurant on a bay that was really close to the sufers so you could watch them while you ate. I think they had a great day together and so did I 😊

The next morning I woke up and went to yoga and it was a fantastic 90 minute hatha class. I have been practising whenever I can on my own but hadn't been to an actual class since we got here so it was really refreshing. As always, I learned something new and the Aussie chick who instructed was really lovely. On the same day, there was also a cremation going on. Yes, a cremation. It's a whole day of events for this culture. Tyler and I watched as they paraded back and forth along the main strip with commemorative t-shirts and music. Another thing we haven't ever seen before and probably won't get to again!

I hope the video of the Cremation Procession works on this blog. Pictures have

Everyone was having a great time! These guys got pretty hot carrying this back and forth but lots of water was being sprayed on them to cool them off

We didn't follow the procession when it was over, but I found this photo on someone's facebook through the Nusa Lembongan twitter account. Kinda creepy!

Wowsers- Amazing Pictures
You sure are getting around and sounds like so much fun except for the sea sick part. But probably just over tired etc. Carry on having an amazing time. Love yous, and now Tyler is another year older I assume he is that much wiser. hehe
