We started with another great breakfast and since we had a bit of spare time in the morning, we spent it to enjoy the resort:

We then started our day with the bird park, which I figured would be fun. I was indeed right, on top of having unusual birds, they had some you could interact with (including the big blue parrot that came down from its perch slowly and calmly to bite my finger pretty hard, stupid parrot).


they showed us how cocks fight. Mmmh, ok

Next door, they had reptiles, we had a quick look:





Our next plan was to have suckling pig, a local specialty. Yummy piggy was had :)




Next, we got to visit places that had art for sale: wood carvings and paintings:




art indeed
art indeed




To finish the day, we went to Tanah Lot to see the fesh water source in the middle of the ocean, the temple that hosts it, and the surroundings. Once is supposed to see the sunset there, but it was an utter clusterfsck of people due to a special gathering of motorcrossers that day, as well the regular tourists. It took us almost 45mn just to get out of the parking lot before sunset, never mind what it would have been later... (yeah, we missed sunset, but we were going to be 10 days on a boat, so we'd get many more):






at the lowest tide, you can walk to the fresh water island

After a long drive back to Ubud (which would have been twice as long, if not more, had we waited for sunset), we got an evening reflexology massage, which did include some severe foot plant manipulations to stimulate nerve endings


We're still wondering how much we really got for the painful foot manipulations :)

And that was the end of our 4th Day in Bali.
