After a good night sleep at the Holiday Inn Express, we left at 0600hrs to catch sunrise at Sanur beach. It was a 30 minutes drive to the Matahari beach, a stretch of shoreline at Sanur.

The sun has risen over the horizon as fishing boats fills the sea.

I spotted a rock formation on the shore. Waves crashing on the rocks as I set myself for the shot.

As the sun rises, my driver recommended another stretch of beach which has shallow waters that are nice for photography.

The water is calm here with the erection of the breakwater barriers. I see families resting on the stone paths as their children play in the water. Below I saw a father leading his young boy into the water.

We also spotted fisherman picking baits (worms) from the mud.

Time to set off for our next stop. The Tegenungan waterfall. Set in the midst of the Tegenungan village, I was told it was popular amongst the local to swim & play at the falls.

We arrived at the walkpath near the falls. There is a winding stairs of approx 200steps followed by venturing through some streams on the rocky terrain to reach the falls

After the trip to the waterfall, we were famished and had breakfast at this beautiful cafe in Ubud.

The breakfast menu was simple. Stir-fried staples such as noodles and rice, pancakes and a couple of local beverages.

The banana fritters were awesome.. The banana was ripe and sweet, the batter was light and crunchy with drizzle of Gula Melaka and grated coconut. Yum!

The lotus cafe is housed beside a lotus pond and temple.  The temple is only open to devotees and as such we were not allowed in.

It was not just the season for the lotus to bloom however one lotus stand out amongst the rest.

As opposed to the lotus flower, there were many blooming flowers in the surrounding areas of the temple and the cafe. Manage to even catch a shot of a giant ant!
