Scenic Sunday # 78: Bali Sunset

Sunset on the island of Bali. June, 1987.

This is my post for the Scenic Sunday meme, which shares beautiful scenes from around the world.  To see more Scenic Sunday posts, or to join and show your own pictures, click HERE.

I decided to combat the frigid temperatures we’re enjoying by looking through some of the photos on my computer which had been scanned from slides taken many years ago.

The picture above helped me feel somewhat warmer.  It was taken in June, 1987, at Kunta Beach on the island of Bali.  I was on a team of college professors who were on our way to China to tech for the summer.  It was decided to leave the States a week early so we (and our spouses) could make a side trip to Bali before entering China.  Scenes like this fit all the stereotypes of what the South Pacific should be like.

The picture above was scanned from a slide.

I’m grateful for the opportunities I’ve had to travel and see some wonderful parts of this beautiful world.

    Oh would I ever love to be somewhere like that right now! Just for a beak from this frigid cold. Lovely shot!

    Sure would like to be on that beach right now. It’s cold out there.
    Beautiful photo.

    What a sight…how fortunate for you to visit this gorgeous place in person.

  8. Teresa Says:

    Very beautiful. I could use a bit of that warming up too.

    Lovely!

    George, I was just reading this morning that the famous Minnesota landmark and tourist destination, Minnehaha Falls has come to a freezing halt. I’m sure there must be a lot of falls frozen right now. I’m sure they would be very beautiful. I’ve always wanted to see Niagra Falls in the winter. You and Betsy could start traveling to photograph them all for us. 🙂 I’ll be right here, wrapped in a blanket and ready for your posts and photos. 🙂

    George: That is a wondrous walk down memory lane to a really neat island.

  12. Cheryl Says:

    Ah, I would love to be seated beside a pool in the warm sun right about now! I will have to be content to do so through your photo.

  13. Müge Says:

    Fantastic shot!

  14. Happyone Says:

    We are supposed to be having a warm up this week. I look forward to temperatures in the 40’s!

  15. Happily Retired Gal Says:

    I’ve never been to Bali but I love your beautiful postcard view!
    Hugs and blessings,

    Closed my eyes and heard the ocean waves gently lapping at the shore. Felt the warmth of the sun tickling my skin – I’m allergic to the sun – so decided to move into the shade of the gently swaying palm trees! Ahhhhhh – so relaxing! Thanks George! Lovely shot btw!

    Bali in your blog and spring flowers on Betsy’s……I don’t think you two are enjoying winter right now and are busy dreaming of somewhere warm 🙂
