Summer Favorites

This season has been completely jam-packed starting with my retiring from teaching, welcoming our newest member to the family……my niece Aria on June 20th, and have plans for traveling again in the next few weeks. Remember days from summers past, when we could stay out late playing into the night or socializing with friends and neighbors by the water.

August is the final full month of summer, and as light begins to dwindle so, will the fruits of summer. Enjoy the remaining pleasures of midsummer by grabbing an occasional ice cream, gazing at the stars, or traveling to far of places.

I enjoy sipping mint tea on the front porch in the cool morning air or having a cocktail in the evening.

Taking time to relax at a spa like beach with no distractions. Fresh steamed crabs makes an easy summer meal with slices of watermelon…..!!!

Simply enjoy,
Kathleen

Destination: Bali

Bali offers a magical blend of culture, people, nature and culinary diversions that will have you scouring the island. Earlier this week several family members spent a day trip to the island of Nusa Penida with snorkeling at Mantay Bay along with stops to take in Kelingking Beach, Broken Cliffs Beach and Angel Bllabong Beach.

Most of Bali is mountainous which is great for hiking, but Broken Beach is an incredible cove with an archway that wraps around the bay allowing the ocean to flow in and out of Nusa Penida Island. Kelingking Beach is hidden with framed towering cliffs, deep turquoise blue water and white sandy shores with the most amazing views.

Jatiluwith UNESCO heritage site of rice terraces along with Tanah Lot temple, Pura Ulun Danu Beratan and Mengwi Taman Ayun temple. Love the cats in the lower right photograph [pretend they’re tigers]!!!

Travel stylishly,
Kathleen
