This morning its hard to get up... the alarm goes off at 5.30am ready for a sunrise dolphin boat trip. The fact I've only had about 5 hours sleep isn't helping!

There is 11 of us from the group on this early trip and were split into two boats... well I say boats... more like a motorized canoe on a bamboo frame!

This tour is rated in the top 5 for things to do in Lovina and so much so that a large concrete crowned monument has been erected in honour of the over-touted cetaceans.

We set off and I was taken back by the sunrise which was absolutely beautiful.. as for the dolphins of course they are lovely.. and so far have been lucky enough to see many and swim with one last year, so seeing them is just fab!

Lily the lady selling everything on the beach was there to greet me off the boat and I happily paid for the this sarong for one of the girls that I agreed to yesterday... (they don't forget your name or face!  We are all happy with our bargain!!

Back from the trip and its time for breakfast before a lazy day ahead... some of the group have decided to go and visit some hot springs... but I've done these to death and so I find a place on the beach and soak up those rays... the women that often annoy you.... I mean ask if you wish to buy... give you cheap price.... discount... as I had already brought they just came to say hello!!

The heat is absolutely exhausting and after just a hour it was back 2 mins to the pool!  The girls came back from the springs and Carmen, myself and Valentina had lunch by the pool and relaxed all afternoon!!  Bali bliss!!!

I then took the opportunity to catch up with my blog... its been 5 days since I wrote and posted an entry... I've had so little time and its non stop touring... I love it and Love Lovina... its such a nice part of the island!

I'm still behind with my entries but hope to catch up soon... it was then time to collect my laundry... a little shop across the road... for just over 2 for 3.5 kilos of washing... its returned washed, dried and ironed... lush!!!

Now its time to get ready as we are having a private BBQ on the beach with Balinese dancing!

Other than one of the girls who is suffering from Bali Belly, all of us are enjoying the private dining at this super location, the food is just amazing... however chili sauce is so much hotter than normal... mine and a few others are experiencing numb lips and that burning sensation... but that aside its a good meal and the entertainment is provided by three Balinese children and its very enchanting to watch.... a great evening!

Time for zzzzzz now and take the advantage of still having my own luxury room with my huge bed, TV and mini bar!!!
