We set out Friday morning to snorkel at the site of the USS Liberty which sits 50 metes offshore in north-east bali.  We found the area and saw lots of divers but are not sure if we saw the ship. If we saw the ship then it was covered with  a lot of sea material.  The snorkeling was not that exciting and I am actually phobic about ships so we went back to Jimberan and snorkeled offshore again after an excellent lunch at a seaside place. Gary ordered a Jaffel which in case you are curious is what comes out of a sandwich maker.  We had Indian food at "Toke" which was different but good.
   Tomorrow is our last full day here and we are checking into a different hotel for the last night as we don't really want to spend it back in the city and the road back is quite easy for a change. We hope to get in some last minute shopping and relax.
   East Bali is quite big on road signs ( as opposed to the rest of Bali) and I hope to add some pictures so that I might get some help from the audience as to what they mean.  We have yet to figure some of them out and others are quite comical. You'll be driving then all of a sudden there is an exclamation point on  a yellow sign!!!!!! Another favorite sign is the hut with a Christmas tree next to it or the fat guy crossing the road.
  If I ever return to Bali I would bring.......
 1. black pepper--- rarity and if they have it its finely ground
2.  beach towel
3.  more bug spray--get bit otherwise (dengue fever anyone?)
4. an underwater camera--great fish when we snorkeled and I could not record it

   Bali has been such a joy for me as I was transplanted from my life onto this vacation and could really leave it all behind.  Where else do flowers shower down on you from the trees??  The footpaths are swept but an hour later are filled with shades of pink, white, red and yellow flowers.  The people here are so warm and friendly ( in general) and although we still don't understand it we see that every home has a temple and they use them.  We see their offerings in front of the businesses  and all around us.
