August 31, 2008 - Nusa Lembongan, Bali, Indonesia

Before the heat of the day set in, we headed ashore to explore Nusa Lembongan a bit. The land is dry and dusty, but the coastline is spectacular.

The Devil's Tear

Most homes and businesses have shrines outside, called "seats of the gods," which were filled with offerings. Beautiful little offerings were also placed at the end of every driveway we passed, and along the beach.

Once the gods have taken their sustenance from the offerings, the birds swoop in to make certain nothing goes to waste.

Luckily for us, we had much tastier feed options. Last night and tonight we enjoyed delicious dinners ashore with Mike from Good News. It is Mike's big, beautiful catamaran in the photo of the parasailor below [scroll down to see the pictures that now adorn the Gili posts]. We all really enjoyed how clean Nusa is in comparison to the Gilis. Every time I turned around Suzy was in the water. And Sten enjoyed riding Shipwrecks, one of three surf breaks in this bay.
