Today, we took a dip in the Indian Ocean on two different sides of the island of Bali.

On the southwest side, near our villa in Seminyak, the ocean's waves were the most strong and powerful I've ever dealt with in my life. I literally stood in the ocean a bit past my knees and could feel all the sand get sucked out from under me. I didn't want to get too far from land without Jason who was watching our backpacks on the beach. This beach also was a bit dirty with trash strewn about along the shore. (Mallasef!)

This afternoon,  we headed to the southern-most tip of Bali, just south of Jimbaran Beach, to the Nammos Beach Club. The side of the island features very high cliffs, clean beaches and impressive underwater scenery. We put on our goggles and swam out in the clear water to a reef of-sorts. This is where I took this post's photo and many more on our good camera.

I hope we get one last glimpse of the ocean before we leave tomorrow.

Yes, good food! Indonesian fried noodles, chicken and pork sate with peanut sauce, sweet corn patties and fish cooked in banana leaf. Going to the local mkt today to buy some ingredients. :-)
