Bali Villa Life

My favorite part of the private villa in the Seminyak area of Bali, was the open air bathroom and shower, along with the private pool to swim even after the kiddos past out.  Apart from a few mosquitoes buzzing around and the slippery when wet (which happened to be all day long) marble floors, I enjoyed having the privacy.  Well...private when the cook/security guard/gardener and driver weren't peeking through the front blinds.  Yes, Papa, it would have been nice to be on the beach, but the 10 minute walk down the hill, really wasn't that far off.  Especially, since we had someone to drive us there.

Grandma and Papa kept mentioning a wake-up call every morning that sounded at first like a rooster, then like frog, then, maybe a gecko, but for sure some kind of creature in the ceiling...hmmmm...there were plenty of geckos hanging around, but we never did figure out what the 'croaking' sound was that woke them every morning... 

Riley continues to love the water, kicking, splashing and wanting to go on his own so bad.  He finally found that the small float helps him stay above the water, so he can kick on his own and is funny to watch...

Makayla started swimming on her own, with no floaty muscles! She is so excited to be going with no floats, comes up for air and goes back down with a smile.  She is now starting to go the short length of the pool ~ Big girl!

Since Bali is the only island in Indonesia that is Hindu majority, rather than Muslim, there are temples all over. Even our villa had an area for offerings (prayer) twice a day.
