We walked down to the Seminyak beach and the tide was right in. It didn't seem like anyone just put down their towel, but rented lounges and umbrella's from the vendors on the beach. We asked the first guy who came up to us how much it would be and he said 200,000rp for 2 hours. That's more than $20!! I wanted to tell him we were in Bali not Miami, but just said no way and walked off. He ran after us saying "how much, how much you want to pay?", but I was so insulted, he was not going to get our money. In Ubud we rented a motorbike for 24 hours for 50,000rp, so the price he was asking was ludicrous
We spent the next hour and a half playing in the extremely enormous waves. Rich was getting pummelled and he said that the last time he saw waves this big was on our wedding day in Hawaii. He had fun though, but in the end had to bow to the power of the ocean. He did get some good ones though (body surfing, not board surfing). Once we dragged ourselves from the water, we walked back to the village square near our villa and got some lunch. We then went back to the villa and utilised the pool facilities for the rest of the afternoon, even when it poured with rain. We also had some fun with the timer function of the camera :)
Not wanting to tax ourselves too much we ordered in again tonight and just hung out in the villa, seeing as we have to give it up tomorrow and go back to our backpacking lifestyle :( It was fun while it lasted, that's for sure.
