Sailing Club

This was our last weekend in Indonesia. We spent it relaxing at our favorite get-away, the Sailing Club at Tanjung Lesung. There was no end to the fun and really we did enough things to keep me blogging for weeks so I will just hit some highlights.

On the way to the club we stopped at this bridge to take some pictures of the colorful boats in the river below. Almost immediately we were surrounded by these boys practicing their English. "Mister, mister, what is your name?" A couple of them dared David to jump, he declined and instead took this picture.

One of my favorite things to do is explore the beach and enjoy nature.

Sophie is the general manager and Grayson's favorite.  He starts looking for Sophie as soon as we pull in to the club.

Unusally low tides allowed the kids to explore the reef where they found lots of cool things; eels, octopus, shrimp, fish, and of course crabs, crabs, and more crabs.

David and Dave Baylis spent a pleasant afternoon hanging out in the pavilion and talking.

The weather was perfect for sailing this weekend. Cody took his brothers out in the optimist, a small boat that is almost impossible to flip, but when he had a chance he zipped off by himself in the much faster, but less stable laser.

We ate and ate and ate. David's favorite is the satay ayam, pictured above. It is yummy, but all the food is so good I have a hard time choosing a single favorite and enjoyed vegetarian soto, chicken nuggets, ubi ubi, bakwan, satay, nasi goreng and pancakes.

Obviously I had been out in the sun far too long when David took this picture!

I am so jealous! I LOVED the sailing club! We had such a good time. It is one of my most treasured memories. I am glad you all got to enjoy it one last time!
