“Any love that is solely based on physical beauty is a stranger to longevity.” Edmond Mbiaka

This morning we got off to a late start (10AM) and headed straight for souvenir shopping. I got a lot of Buddha inspired items, essential oils, Bali soap and wood carved soap dishes. We hit four gorgeous beaches today: Samabe Beach which was completely secluded, we had the entire beach to ourselves! Pandawa Beach looked like Grand Central Station during rush hour – extremely crowded. Then on to Bingin Beach, which so far is my fave, the most beautiful colors live there. Lastly we went to Dreamland Beach which was also  very nice. LOTS OF STONE CARVED STAIRS. If you can’t lift your legs well, you won’t make it very far in Bali. These beaches are hard work to get to. It’s a workout just to get there to relax. I had lots of time on the beach to meditate and relax today. LOVE, LOve, love it! Wonderful to be here, I feel so lucky to have this experience. Lastly, we kind of crashed a wedding when the rain crashed it. I got to admire all of the sexy shoes of the wedding party.
