Over the waves of Bali
9/19/11 - 9/24/11
Our last day in Bali we woke up at 5:45 to watch the sunrise over the ocean. Despite our concerns with the clouds covering the sky when we woke up, they parted just over the horizon giving spectacular colors out over the water.
After the sunrise, I had an 8am surfing lesson. Although my parents had serious doubts on my surfing ability, I can let you all know that I am in fact amazing. I stood up on just my second wave! Granted my instructor did almost everything for me: told me which wave to take, taught me how to stand up and balance on the board, and even helped me get back out past where the waves were breaking each time, I'm pretty sure you would all be impressed with my ability to surf. I hope to try it again some day, and see how well I can do on my own.
