Easter 2011 Bintan, Indonesia

We had a fabulous Easter weekend in Bintan, Indonesia!  We took a 50 minute ferry ride from Singapore to Bintan Thursday morning.  A short shuttle to Ria Club Med and we were relaxing on the beautiful beaches of the South China Sea.  The water, very warm, but did leave an occasional tar ball on our legs.  Riley LOVED the beach and the waves of the ocean, while Makayla enjoyed playing in the sand and building sandcastles, but enjoys the pool more for swimming.  She is doing well swimming on her own with her floating muscle bands.  Riley just likes to jump in and sink to the bottom :-/

Plenty of activities to keep us busy, water activities, circus trapeze practice, live entertainment, arts and crafts, lizard and gecko watching, monkey spotting and an Easter elephant even made an appearance on Sunday!  Did I mention an open bar?  Way too much food to sample and experience ~ it was all amazing! No Turkey or ham though.  There was lamb on Easter Sunday, but mostly fish and seafood dishes with different curry varieties and rice.  Some sushi and the pasta was a hit for the kids. Desserts were amazing ~ did I mention an open bar and babysitting services? :-) 

Yes, the Easter bunny did find the kids and even left some of those plastic filled eggs hidden around our room ~ that silly bunny! 

Makayla and Riley's 1st time in ocean!!
