Our days falling into that wonderful lazy holiday pattern of slow breakfasts… eating way too much at the buffet to then lounge at the beach! But today the girls have decided to hit the shops and markets of Senggigi!
The traffic of Bali increases every time we visit.. the infrastructure just not keeping up with the constant development of the tourist strip. Half an hour at a crawl we made it to the start of our walk tour Senggigi Square.
Jackpot on dresses for all and some silverware, bracelets and necklaces for the young ladies of the group.
A walk past some very funky homeware stores and a number of cafes. The Bali designer boutiques and of course a number run by expats are the same as Singapore prices and not a lot of difference in what they sell… overpriced resort wear and Jewellery.
A rest for some very yummy chocolate milkshakes and beers at the Drifters cafe before last purchases of some lovely silver Jewellery!
The colourful umbrellas much prettier then the very cloudy sunset unfortunately but the cocktails were cheap and cold and the kids had fun running around on the beach. We had a little more fun haggling with the beach vendors selling their colourful bracelets, sarongs and kites. Marty practicing his very good Bahasa!
Day Two of Shoping only Ruth and I made it out for the morning walking Jalan Legian from Kuta towards Senggigi. Many stall of clothing of course along with this year souvenir du jour… the dream catcher!!
I did manage to pick up a few homeware trickets… one a very cool… well I like it… ornamental shell necklace!
Free mojitos for the ladies at the hotel… the smallest mojitos ever!!! You know the saying… if it’s too good to be true it…..?!!!
Farewells to our Travelling companions the Adam family, back home to The Gold Coast for them. We’ve had a ball and it was wonderful to see the kids pick up right where they left off two years ago! We look forward to our next adventure with them!
