Morning has broken


 This is all from the same sunrise

So are the water reflexions.
It is amazing the spectrum of colours we see in just a sunrise/sunset. 

You been out?

Part of our normal day-to-day routine.
The boys walking back from the surf.

Before sunrise

We've been having some waves down here lately and I got lucky enough to get on a dinghy to get out there and catch the action.
Before sunrise.
Before coffee.

 Wary surfers hesitantly stroking their way to the waves.
 Looks beautiful don't it? 
Until you see how big the waves really are.
There's no way I would paddle onto that willingly.

Winter

It is right in the middle of winter down here.
We just had our shortest day.
Sure beats winters in Norway!

Blown away

The winds have been full on this week.
The boys have gotten their toys out.


Looks so easy doesn't it?
(So deceiving)

Activities

 So, we've had plenty of winds and waves these past couple of weeks.
In fact so much so that our internet stopped working and so did the ferry that connects us to the mainland. (Not complaining). 
 The man has been getting some solid hours down at kite-board beach while I've been getting waves with the girl brigade on the island.
The secret about our little secret spot is out by a long ways and every year we see a huge increase in tourists/expats from Bali wanting to move in, make businesses, make money, - I'm feeling strangely protective of our little sweet spot here on the island but I guess everything is changing, not always for the better.

Stenciled concrete

So we have a "guest house" which really is just a shed where all our surfboards live, and our bikes, and our power tools, kites, etc.etc. you get the drift.
The floor is grey concrete and it looks so ugly and for years I've wanted to do something with it. 
So this year I did.
Stencils.
So much fun!
