Today is our 3rd wedding anniversary - I am getting old!!!
Despite going late or should I say early this morning to bed - we still woke up around 6am (8am in Australia) this morning. :-(  After we woke up I went for a swim in the swimming pool while Roxy was reading on the chair next to the pool.
Soon after that we went for a morning walk on the beach (Sunset Beach).  We bought some bottled water and changed some money (there are heaps of dodgy money exchange places here).
When we came back to our villa we ordered breakfast - where a chef comes with an assistant to actually cook your breakfast at you villa!  It was awesome!
Following the breakfast we just bludged until 1:30pm when we went to a SPA for massage (obviously all organised by Roxy).  The place looked to be built in Indian style but it was very flash.  Needless to say I have enjoyed my treatment immensely.  I even got a facial! (first ever and I thought for a second I had baby skin). :-)
Roxy had a special "Mum to Be" massage and "Hair Cream Bath" - you should have seen her - it was like giving lollies to a child. :-)
After coming back we changed and went to Kuta to see local (and other) shops and to have dinner.  We arrived just in time for the sunset (see photos).
After walking for a while we came to the Bali bombing memorial - out of the five columns of the people who died 2 were Australians (88 in total).  It was amazing to see how many people were visiting the monument.
Soon after that we negotiated a taxi fare with the driver to take us back to our villa.  It's about 9pm and we are pretty much dead.
Can't wait to hit the bed...
Until tomorrow... Bye.
