Happy Sunday, everybody! It’s Sunday night here in Bali, and we’re back home in Ubud after a delightfully exhausting weekend down at the beach. We went to check out a surf spot that we were told was good for our level (aka EASY), and had quite the adventure! Yesterday we accidentally surfed a few breaks down, at the more advanced break, and WOW. We felt it. It was a battle, but we both caught some good ones — and proved we can handle more than we thought. Today, though, we went to Batu Bolong (where we intended to go all along) with an old friend from home and had an INCREDIBLE day catching wave after wave after wave. It was awesome. And there was a big swell, so these were GREAT waves! I’m pretty sure we’ll be making the trek down to the coast regularly… because surfing is ADDICTING! The sunburn part = not so much. Sorry, Mom!
