More from the Gili islands

We took a lazy stroll along the leafy, bicycle rich, lane

and went to look at the baby turtles in the turtle sanctuary

before settling down to watch some new furniture being delivered to the beach bar

Don’t drop it now…

I’m going to lounge on that later, with a cocktail in my hand as I watch the sunset

Only 3 more to go

Ahh sunsets… my next post will be dedicated to them, so watch this space… meanwhile, back at the night market, Yaniq was choosing our evening meal

and we had a fresh, juicy corn on the cob, dripping with hot chilli sauce

I was very full up so the next day I only wanted a light salad for lunch…

A whole pineapple, just for me - but I asked for salad!

I ordered a salad – and was served a pineapple.

Ahh, but look inside the pineapple… now that’s the way to serve a salad

There's a salad, hiding inside my pineapple

Yaniq played a few more songs while sipping pink tuak (a local brew made from the flowers at the top of palm trees – far less strong than arak!)

and I chilled out on the beach before going snorkeling.

Where's that suncream?

Just another blissful lazy day in the Gili islands
