Usually, it is the women carrying huge loads on their heads, but this time, there were some men mixed in the action too! The men carry things on their shoulders, while the women carry stuff on their heads!
The diving was not Raja Ampat by a long shot, but having said that, it was good! Kayla and I really liked Nusa Lembongan. If you have never heard of Lembongan, it is an island off the shores of Bali. It is about a half-hour speed boat ride from Sanur. Well worth the trip out there. It is like the Bali of the old days…still not heavily developed, but some good restaurants and nice villas to stay. We did two dives in the morning, and then had the afternoons off to explore the island by motorbike. We went to Manta Point every morning, but were not lucky and saw no Mantas….but the trip out there was fantastic with the towering cliffs of Nusa Penida, and the ocean breaking up against the cliffs. Spectacular. I wish I had brought my camera to get some shots of the cliffs, but the boat ride was just too rough, and my camera would have certainly been swamped with water!
This photo is off the shores of Lembongan….I could sit for hours watching the giant waves hit the rocks!!
When I was kid and you asked someone why they became a teacher, they said, “three words…June, July and August”. Yea baby !! It sure rings true this time of year. I have two days of work left, and then it is SUMMER VACATION! I still feel like a kid when the summer roles around!
Summer vacation is fast approaching! Four days, in fact. My favorite time of year, obviously!
This year, we are headed to the UK where we will me my parents, and join them on a cruise around the Kingdom. England, Ireland, Scotland, and a stop in Normandy before heading back to London. Then, we are off to Portugal and Spain. It will be epic, I am sure!!
