I did it! Got up at 5:30 am and hiked the hilly route to Blue Lagoon beach in the dark so I could be on the beach at sunrise. I’m grateful my knees are working again.
Also a view of Padang Bai from the hill on the way back, plus one of the friendly staff here putting out the morning offerings, which is practiced by all families and businesses. Each family also has their own temple or shrine in their family compound; sometimes the temples can be quite large. (Click to “embiggen”.)
