We made it to breakfast by 09:00 and were given a menu to choose from; I chose Pancakes and Terry had eggs on toast. Fruit, Tea and Coffee were standard; fruit seemed to come with everything, regardless.
We decided to spend the morning relaxing by the pool reading but this did not materialise as a family with three really loud children were dominating the pool and shouting at each other. They didn't seem to realise they were the only ones making any noise - everybody else sitting around the pool just wanted peace and quiet. Terry had to return to the bungalow - he just couldn't hack it
Each time we returned to our bungalow we were hissed at by two little kittens no bigger than the size of my fist - right little tigers! The mother cat didn't look much bigger but she was a little more laid back. When we opened the bungalow door they tried to come in but Terry wouldn't let them. I bet they had been in hundreds of times in the past.
After a good hour of really disturbing the peace the family disappeared back to their accommodation - you could almost hear the sigh of relief from others around the pool. Later on, just before midday, we saw them (heard them first) pulling their suitcases toward the lobby - they were checking out; hallelujah.
We popped out for some lunch around midday and went to a local kitchen. We both had Balinese dishes and coffee. The food was nice, not too spicy and the coffee was strong, sweet and syrupy, you could have painted a sole on your shoe with it. The lady who owned and ran the kitchen was very inquisitive and wanted to know all about our lives in England ( she thought we were Australian initially). She also told us a lot about her life and family. I was surprised Terry even agreed to eat there; it was not unlike one of his worse fears, the 'home-stay' experience.
We returned to the bungalow and Terry had a lie down. As he had had such a disturbed night, I left him and went back out to the pool.
Early evening we walked out to find a bar so Terry could watch the Australia vs England rugby game. We eventually found a bar stuffed with a mixture of Brits and Aussies. Much to Terrys disappointment, Australia won.
After the rugby we walked further into Sanur town to find somewhere to have a bite to eat, before returning to the bungalow. It had been another lazy day.
